    Reliably packed for sunset with tourists and monks seeking impromptu language lessons, this temple hill in the centre of Luang Prabang kills it with its stunning views of the surrounding town, river, and hills. It's lovely at any time of day, but worth braving the crowds for the sunset.

    Climbing the stairs to Phu Si Hill to watch the sunset is probably the most touristy thing to do in Luang Prabang, but for good reason. The view of the city and surrounding mountains is absolutely gorgeous, especially as the sun is setting. There is a mix of tourists, locals, and monks at the temple just before sunset. Go early for a good seat.

    This is the best spot to have bird eye view of Luang Prabang. Arrive before 5 pm to give you time to climb the 400 steps up and enjoy the scenery. If you are lucky, you might get a chance to see young monks cleaning up reclining Buddha statue along your way up. Reach the top before sunset and you can see the reflection of the sun on the beautiful Mekhong River.

    Phu Si Hill is a great place to enjoy the Luang Prabang sunset. You get three hundred and sixty degree views from the top as the heat of the day breaks.

    Beyond the summit, there are many statues of the buddha to enjoy throughout the entire park. So after taking photos of beautiful Luang Prabang (with all of the rest of the travellers) following the pathways to the one buddha per day statues on the far side and a few imprints of the buddha's foot in stone.

    Phu Si Hill is worth the 20,000 kip and should only take you an hour or so to explore.
