This is really off the beaten track and awesome. Very quiet and peaceful. Of course a visit to the big golden Buddha statue doesn`t take long. But you can also visit the sculptors. And if you continue on the road where you`d turn right to go to Vat Chomphet (there`s this big red gateway that you can see in one of the pictures above) to get to the Mekong. Chill out at the Sala on top of the river or chill your feet in the river. If you come here by bike, you`ll see the Buddha statue from road 13 on your left hand side about 4 km after the airport. That`s a little before Vat Dong Ka Long appears on the right hand side. There´s no sign on road 13 so make sure you turn left before you´ve passed the statue.
