Owner description: Displays of the opulence of pre-Communist Laos.
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Lao Monarchy ended in 1975.
To be able to see what is behind the wall was just Amazing.
A lot to see just enjoy the moments and try to have a photo graphic memory if you can because the taking photo inside the palace is not allow.

Backpacks go in the locker and shoes onto the rack leaving you unencumbered to walk through this royal home. If you take the time to read all that is on offer and enjoy the stark furnishings, you will have a good time. Gifts from countries around the world are on display at the end. Loved the old cars in the garage.

We went to the palace on the first day (as does everyone) and were so disappointed that this was the most that LP had to offer in terms of beauty. Fortunately we were way wrong. It's a simple house after the ransacking of the old palace around 1904 - and its best seen as a reconstruction by the French. The real beauty of LP and Laos lies in its temples and on the river.

Worth an hour or two. Lovely Wat on the right but you can't go inside. Stand in the entrance and have a look. The palace has some interesting displays. Especially the detail of the glass mosaic on the walls. Follow the story next to the paintings as you walk around the palace. Someone needs to maintain the cars at the back a bit better.
