Of the two wats in Pakbeng, Wat Si Chome Chaeng is the more interesting to visit.
While neither of these wats are worth travelling across Laos to see, they're a good excuse for a stroll to stretch your legs after a full day of sitting on a boat.
The high vantage points at these two wats give you a view of sunset. Wat Kok Khor is about 500 metres up the hill and Wat Si Chome Chaeng is a kilometre away along the main road.
