Visiting the That Phone Stupa in Savannakhet, Laos

That Phone Stupa in Savanakhet, Laos


We made an upcountry tour to the "That Phone Stupa" (believed to be about 500 years old). It is located about 45 km north-east of Savanakhet town. We took the "back road" to get there (which is going along the Mekong river) which passes the beautiful country side of Laos with rice fields and small villages. And many old .... very old steel bridges. And the roads were not so good. Back to town we took the main road which again also passed the beautiful country side but the road and bridges are in much better shape. The stupa itself is not so impressive but the all trip was fun & beautiful.
