Jars, Jars, Jars

No one goes to Xieng Khouang without inspecting the myste- rious Plain of Jars. But, with thousands of massive ancient urns scattered over dozens of sites, and other attractions to see in the province, your most efficient bet is a short trip from Phonsavanh to Jar Site 1. A new visitor centre greets you with local handicrafts, refreshments, and information panels. A marked trail, well away from the UXOs still littering the 25-hectare grounds, leads to the 334 jars spread across a field. A 2.5m x 2.5m jar tops the others, most of which are half the size, with just one decorated in carved bas relief.

Location: From Phonsavanh, follow Route 10 south for about 6 km, and turn right at Ban Na-0.
