Marvellous to walk through the rooms of the royals. A bit more about what happened to them would have been nice but really lovely

Be sure to go early to this and other 'around town' walks and sites. Nice sense of history. Luang Prabang is a lovely place, laid back!

A great place to visit to learn all about the previous kings and history. Lots of artefacts and things to see. The Japanese mosaic type glass walls are absolutely amazing to see. So pleased we visited this.

The temple is quite beautiful and amazing! It's in a very good condition. I've been not in the museum just outside watching the nice buildings and gardens. There is also an exhibition with the old cars of the king, interesting!

Considering the price, we were disappointed at the lack of information provided and weren’t even allowed to go inside the temple - we could only look outside. The museum was quite interesting and the grounds were nice to walk around, however we were just expecting...More

Not much in terms of information here. But the grounds are very pretty and the throne room is magnificent. Good for an hour of your time.

This site only opens a few hours a day, so check the schedule before going. There are also some exhibitions you can visit, for free. You only have to pay to go inside the palace.

They make you put your stuff in a locker and no photos. Such a shame, lots of beautiful things to see. The artifacts, mosaics, thrones and such are lovely. The stories about the last emperor are sad to hear, so much turmoil in this country...More
