Wat Ho Phakeo, Vientiane

3.8
#10 of 26 in Sightseeing in Vientiane
Landmark Tourist Spot
See religious art of Laos at Wat Ho Phakeo, as well as manuscripts on dried leaf. Although rebuilt, the temple resembles the original one and boasts a 19th century-Bangkok architectural style. In the garden, witness 2,000-year-old stone, which people used in burial ceremonies. The entrance highlights Naga, a mythological snake. A long row of stone Buddha statues, some of which date back to period between 6th and 9th centuries, line the terraces. Two wooden carved doors lead to the congregation hall. Continue to gilded throne, where Emerald Buddha used to be. Put Wat Ho Phakeo on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Vientiane vacation generator.

  • This is a delicate subject with Laos, Thailand International, but what that is is and tell the devs probably won't go again that Nice, but to shift the people kindly Thailand visitor is in deference to the place and the word pudding that will affect the feelings of the people of Lao in the past period. We cannot delete anything that goes out. But ask a country that we are mutual respect and in particular I am ready to do everything for people with customs. The traditions and culture of the vagina, until the pudding has the same writing language, understand and love each other without reconciliation because I hold that there is in the world of the wizards the same chicken, and counting one, two, three, more like it.

Where to stay in Vientiane

Pretty little Vientiane offers a good range of accommodations, with most either mid-range or upmarket hotels by national standards. Close to the riverfront sit the grandest of the bunch, with newly built high-rise hotels and boutiques set in old French colonial buildings. Move away from the water a little to find some standard, unassuming hotels, mixed in with a few more boutiques and high-rises overlooking the prettier plazas and along the main boulevards. For budget options, look at the guesthouses and hostels on the side streets around Rue Setthathilath, but make sure to reserve your room early to avoid disappointment.
