Some tourist travel tips for Laos

Located in the interior of Asia, the Lao People’s Democratic Republic is a favorite destination of many travelers looking for unfamiliar territories with beautiful nature and mystical atmosphere.
Wat Xieng Thong is one of the most beautiful and ornate temples in Laos.

Wat is a royal temple built by King Sethatirat in 1559 on the banks of the Mekong River. It is one of the few temples that was not destroyed during the invasion of the Black Sea Army in 1887.

The temple has two entrances. The entrance to the road is through a complex gateway covered with a round eardrum. Entering the Mekong River has been the main entry point for centuries. This was the entrance the King used when he arrived by boat from the Royal Palace. A long wide staircase from the Mekong River leads to the temple; near the top are two large white lions guarding the ground.
The symbol

The most impressive building in Wat Sieng Tong is the temple building. Both the exterior and the interior of the Sim are extremely decorated with intricate gold embossing on black lacquer.

Kuang Si Waterfall, sometimes called Kuang Xi or known as Tat Kuan Xi Waterfalls, is a three-level waterfall about 29 kilometers south of Luang Prabang. These waterfalls are a favorite trip for tourists in Luang Prabang. The falls begin in shallow pools at the top of a steep hill. This results in a major drop of 60 meters (200 feet) drop.

Nam Ou (Laotian: n ້ ໍ າ ອູ [nâːm ùː], literally: “river with a cup of rice”) is one of the most important rivers in Laos. It is located 448 kilometers from Phongsaly Province to Luang Prabang Province. Along with the Mekong, Nam Ou is the only natural canal suitable for transporting long-haul boats. Near the confluence with the Mekong are the Pak Ou Caves, famous for their Buddha statues.
