Wat Phu That
Run of the mill wat
What we say:
At the top of the hill in the middle of town is a stupa and massive golden Buddha.
The Buddha in pose is quite impressive and stands a good 15 metres high. Most people will come and grab a couple of photos and promptly retreat back down the main road from where they came. The views over town are also noteworthy.
Stairs opposite Litthavixay lead up the hill as does a road further towards the river.
This place is alright, but don't lose sleep if you have to miss it.
