Vientiane - Part 2
|Too bad this museum was closed that day|
Since it was too early for lunch, we walked to Haw Pha Kaew / Hophakaew Museum, King Setthathirat's former royal temple. The weather was scorching hot and I almost refuse to walk. Luckily I brought along an umbrella. I'm praising myself for being a genius!! hahahhahahaha. The entrance fee was 5,000 kip per person.
Next stop is the Sisaket Museum (formally known as Wat Si Saket), the oldest temple in Vientiane which is just opposite the road. We had to stop for ice-cream at the roadside stall because of the hot weather. Entrance fee was 5,000 kip per person.
Decided not to go in as this is an active temple. There were people and monk praying inside. We just lingered outside, taking few photos, reluctant to go but since there were nothing else to see and to do, we proceed to Talat Sao Mall.

|Lao coffee is a must try. Not to my liking though. Vietnam coffee is still my choice|
|I made new friend|
After a short nap, we headed to Pha That Luang, the national and religious monument of Laos. Entrance fee is 5,000 kip for tourist. Again we did not go in. We went only to captured this beautiful building at night.
