“Great acoustics”
Review of Wat Pa Phon Phao

Wat Pa Phon Phao
Reviewed 15 August 2013

it is a separate temple, not in the city centre. We got there by bicycles, but be aware that the way to the temple is ascending, so it cold be difficult to reach it when hot. It is closed for "lunch" from 10 to 13 every day.
Inside there are beautiful paintings and a great view from the balcony on the second floor. But if you go upstares, you will get to smaller rooms with fantastic acoustics - your voice is reflected many times and becomes very loud. Try singing there :)

While visiting the sightseeing highlights of Luang Prabang, we randomly discovered this amazing temple, which is actually located in the middle of a forest. A great place where to escape the everyday rush and enjoy the simplicity of life. The building really impressed us with all the beautiful details and resplendent exterior. It seemed like the site still has not been discovered by the mass-tourists, so this definitely is a place worth visiting, if you are looking for something off the beaten path.

Looks great from the plane as you come into land and looks great from Mt Phu si at sunset. Has nice airy feel to it and gold temple looks great in sunset - inside in brightly decorated and upstairs offers pleasant views back to Phu si and Luang prabang - worth a gander

Beautiful temple with the most unusual pictures of war and inhumanity on the bottom floor. Above them are pictures of the teachings of Buddism.
