|That Luang or the Golden Stupa|
Aside from the ancient, revered That Luang, you can also find within the vicinity the temples and other Buddhist relics of varying sizes. And just a stone's throw from the stupa is the giant reclining statue of golden Buddha. It looks gorgeous and photogenic, so don't miss to snap a shot with your camera upon visiting.
How to get to Pha That Luang

If you know how to drive, you can also rent a motorbike so you can go to many places as much as you like. The golden stupa runs North from Patuxai Monument.
Opening Hours and Entrance Fee
As of this writing, the admission fee to the golden stupa is around 5,000 Kip per person. It opens daily from 1am until 4pm. If you don't want to join with the rest of the crowd, the best time to go there is during early morning.
