The Pha That Luang is a gilded large Buddhist stupa dating from the 3rd century. Most recently reconstructed in the 1930s, this is one of the most important national monuments in Laos and is a national symbol. It warrants a quick visit and walk around.

We paid an entrance fee but could only walk around the structure because it's all pretty much under construction. The golden-colored structure itself looks rather magnificent but it was a pity that we couldn't get to the inside of it, where it supposedly houses the...More
