The palace is worth a visit but it is very modest. Be aware about the dress code, short sleeve shirts, long pants for women.

You can't possibly miss this temple as it's located at the heart of Luang Prabang, next to the National Museum (The Royal Palace). This temple provides a very beautiful backdrop for great photos, especially when taken from the opposite Mount Phousi, when the night market is setting up.

Extraordinary palace full of golden statues - the goddess in the centre of all this glory. The palace is renovated and looks very nice.

This Temple Sparkles as You Enter the Royal Palace/National Museum Complex. It Makes for a Lovely Photo Opportunity. Unfortunately, it was Closed to the Public.

Can't mistake a Wat for a Palazzo!!! This beautiful gold gilded temple sits at the entrance to the Royal Palace, now the National Museum. It is closed to the public as it usually houses one of the most sacred objects in all of Laos, the Phabang a golden Buddha image. This wat mkes a beautiful photo op.
