There are lots of Wat (temple) in Luang Prabang.  It may take a few days to visit every Wat in the town. They are also a part of qualifications making Luang Prabang as the World Heritage Site.

Although Luang Prabang is rapidly developing into a sense of tourist place, visiting a Wat is still reflective to local people life.
