A mix of wats and lao lao
What we say:
Next to the post office is a school, which is on the site of an old wat (temple) bombed and razed to the ground in 1968.
Now the only wat in Muang Khua, built in 1979, is next to this site. It's interesting more for the history of the area than for any aesthetic reasons.
A village across the Nam Ou produces lao lao, the local rice whisky. To see this potent brew in production you can cross the river in one of the small boats down in the port. They take loads of people across for 2,000 kip each, and depart whenever there are enough passengers.
Once on the other side, the village is two kilometres downstream along the only road.
