Wat Chom Khao Manirat
Wat with a view
What we say:
The view is fair but the Mekong River is obscured by trees. The wat itself is quite attractive. The monks are young and quite cheeky. Chanting begins at 18:00.
From here a sign points to Fort Carnot, an old French colonial military barracks, 900 metres away. At the time of writing, Fort Carnot was closed for renovations but would be worth a look when it is open again.
Watch out for the monkeys.
