Laos - Sights
Many places should not missed:
Address: Ban Thakho, Si Phan Don
Khone Phapheng is considered the largest
waterfall (by volume) in Southeast Asia and is therefore a
boast-worthy sight to visit. It's located at the southern end of Si
Phan Don, an intricate network of islets where the Mekong fans out.
Phan Don is also home to the rare Irrawaddy dolphins, which can be
seen at the southern tip of Don Khon.
Pak Ou Caves
Keyword: religious/spiritual, cave
The spectacular Pak Ou caves are justifiably lauded for their striking setting carved into a limestone cliff facing the river. The caves are crammed with Buddha images of all styles and sizes, but most represent the classic Luang Prabang standing Buddha. Trips can be arranged through guesthouses and tour operators.
Hours: Tue-Sun 08:00 - 16:00
Keyword: monument, religious/spiritual
The Pha That Luang is the most important
national monument in
Laos, a symbol of
both the Buddhist religion and Lao sovereignty. The monument looks
almost like a gilded missile cluster from a distance. Surrounding it
is a high-walled cloister with tiny windows, added by King Anouvong
in the early 19th century as a defense against invaders.
Plain of Jars
Transport guided tour only: from Kong Keo Guest House
Keyword archaeological site
The Plain of Jars is a large area extending
Phonsavan from the southwest to the northeast where huge
jars of unknown origin are scattered about in over a dozen
groupings. There are three main sites available to visit, with site
1 the closest and containing the most jars.
Wat Phu Champasak
Spread over the lower slopes of Phu Pasak
(also known more colloquially as Phu Khuai), Wat Phu is small
compared with the monumental Angkor-era sites in
Cambodia or Thailand.
But the tumbledown pavilions, ornate shiva-lingam sanctuary,
enigmatic crocodile stone and tall trees that shroud much of the
site in soothing shade give Wat Phu a mystical atmosphere.
