This is the place where the former kings of Laos once lived. The wooden structure is amazingly cool and comfortable even in a hot summer day. It's a good representation of how a typical Laotian house looks like in a more grandiose scale. Besides it's...More

Lots to see here. Interesting to see old photos and bedrooms. Wear a long skirt or trousers as my skirt - just to my knees - unfortunately wasn’t long enough so I had to wear a very thick blanket like wrap which was so hot....More

Such a glorious building set in lovely gardens. A great deal of history here so worth taking the time to do it properly. Be respectful and look around, it is a beautiful place.
