This temple is decorated extensively with impressive carving, murals, and mosaics. And visit the Laotian Royal Palace officially known as Haw Kham which was built during the French colonial era for the King and his family. The site was chosen so that official visitors to Luang Prabang could disembark from their river voyages directly by the palace and be received there. In 1975, the monarchy was overthrown and the Palace was then converted into a National Museum. Today it houses many artifacts which showcase the richness of Laotian culture. We’ll continue on to enjoy the atmosphere at Wat Mai built in 1796 and sits at the foot of Mount Phousi.
