What we say: 3.5 stars

The sim was reportedly constructed in the mid-1800s, although the monastery is much older.

With funding from UNESCO, the living quarters have been converted into classrooms for teaching the traditional artistic styles and methods needed to restore and maintain Luang Prabang's temples.

Rather than doing the usual English homework, the novices here can be seen painting and carving.
