Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web
See the mysterious megaliths of Plain of Jars, scattered with thousands of massive stone containers. Of unknown ancient origin, the jars range from 1 to 3 meters in height (3 to 10 feet). Over 90 clusters of these puzzling objects exist across this part of the country. Since the area was carpet-bombed by the American forces, only a few of the archaeological sites have been cleared from unexploded bombs and can be safely visited.

  • A visit to the plain of jars is definitely worth it. We are celebrating with a guide gone for + \-50 € for a whole day, in a mini van. We have visited site 1 and 3. The history was interesting and a guide can you spot of course tell you much about the pitchers, but also about the bombing by United States.

And hundreds of questions are posed, self learn and respond.
