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.

The World Is My Oyster

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
