Travelled here from Savannakhet by scooter via the lake roads, passable but very bumpy at times. We returned via the main road (so did it in a loop) which was much smoother and quicker, albeit less rural and natural. The temple itself isnt anything amazing and the whole site takes less than 20 minutes to take in. However, the grounds... More

We came here on scooter together with local friends in the middle of the day. It's a hot spot and there's a delicate sort of atmosphere at the pagoda. It seems very authentic with very little traces of renovations and very tainted by the weather conditions. The pagoda is told to be about 400 years old and is very asymmetric,... More

Said to contain a relic of the Buddha, this temple complex is revered by people from both Laos and Thailand. Very quiet but also relatively non-commercial you can feel the atmosphere when you visit. Went by scooter and took about 40 minutes from central Savannakhet.

This very ancient temple is considered the most sacred place in Savannakhet. Locals and visitors come to pay their respect when possible.

The best way for enjoying this trip is doing it by bicycle or scooter. There are two roads. I got there from the one that goes around Ban Bungva lake (approx. 15 km from the bus station). Although it is a dirt road, it is easily doable by bike. The landscape and the countryside Lao style is beautiful around there.... More

People in Savannaketh believe that That Ing Hang houses a relic of Buddha. Unlike most of the temples in Thailand and Cambodia, the main pagoda is not painted which adds more character to the edifice. We were talking in whispers while we were there.

Peaceful and relaxing place. Nothing to do just look :) The pagoda is quite big and very old. Watch local people there to understand culture

The pagoda is quite big, very beautiful with Lan-Xang (Lao) architecture. Not too far from the city center.

Our tuk tuk driver for the afternoon took us here. It's in the middle of nowhere but not that far from Savannakhet. It's an old temple complex with a large stupa. As far as I could tell, all of the notice are in Lao so I could not read them. Apart from one sign that said one area was for... More
