After purchasing out tickets and ten minutes into our tour we were informed that they were closing early for cleaning services and we had to leave. They closed an hour early for this. I asked why we were not made aware of this when we...More

Considering how little the King appears to have had in his palace, it’s amazing there was envy at all! The mirror room is amazing, but the other rooms are a bit lacklustre. Not a lot of information either. Worth a look though. Budget 30 mins....More

The best view is the outside of the palace and the amazing Temple in the grounds. To get into the actual palace costs around £3 per person and you need to leave ALL your belongings in a locker outside (including camera, handbag, etc). Unclear why...More

I would definitely recommend visiting this wonderful museum. It was super interesting to learn more about the culture and history of the royal family. I would recommend going across the road and climbing up the stairs to the lookout, too.

Good to see that the history of the country is not lost as there is now no monarchy. Simply set out, definitely not overdone. An hour is about right. Worth a visit.

We walked around the grounds and into the temples. You need to take your shoes off to enter any of the buildings. There was a small fee to walk around. The temples were a place of beauty. Mosaic walls and many statues. If you want...More

The Royal Palace - built in 1904 for King Sisavang Vong - is a cross between the typical Luang Prabang architecture and French style. The rooms are well preserved and give insight into the lives of the royals. There are several outlying buildings that are...More
