4 Colorful Lao Buddhism Temple in Ban Xang Hai in Laos

Tourists cruising on the Mekong River are often dropped off at Ban Xang Hai in Laos because it is the Whiskey Village. But it only takes 15 minutes to see the distilleries and walk by a few merchants on a dusty path while marveling at their simple lives. And then, shining brightly in the center of this impoverished community is this elegant and colorful Lao Buddhism temple. It speaks volumes about the villagers’ priorities and how they are devoted to the Theravada tradition of Buddhism.
