May your wishes come true

What we say: 3.5 stars

Wat Pa Sing Kham is famous for the people of Udomxai as the place to go when you want your wishes to come true.

People make a day trip from the big city - which has plenty of wats of its own - specifically to meditate, respect Buddha, and promise that if their dreams are fulfilled, they will come back next year and make contributions to support the wat. If they don't keep their promise, it is widely known that great troubles will befall them.

Obviously, set in such gracious natural surroundings as Muang La, the temple is a lovely place to visit. It is attractive, but plain and a little rundown - not on a par with those in Luang Prabang. To get there, turn right out of the gates of the Hot Spring Resort and head up the hill - away from the main road.
