    Wat Luang is a very old temple (however the current buildings are newer) with a main hall containing a bronze Buddha statue. The other notable building is the two-storey building containing a small museum. It is worth visiting when at Wat Luang. I enjoyed my visit and the TAT volunteer was very kind and helpful.

Where to stay in Phrae

There are a number of excellent budget-friendly to luxury options available in Phrae. Head near the bus station for a couple of well-equipped, slightly pricier hotels that offer cable TV, air-conditioning, and ensuite bathroom facilities. Alternatively, traveling backpackers on a budget flock to the heart of Phrae, where there are a number of rooms close to the night market. The accommodations here are spaced apart and require a lot of walking. Book your rooms ahead of time to avoid a lot of traveling back and forth.
