Change things up with a short trip to Nam Ngum Dam in Thalat (about 1h 40 min away). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Wat Ho Phra Keo, see the interesting displays at Lao Textile Museum, brush up on your military savvy at Lao People's Army Museum, and tee off at Santisuk Lang Xang Golf Club.
