Actually plenty of temples/ wats ⛩ ⛩ available for visit by slow walking🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️along the Mekong riverside. Quite a good exercise with nice sightseeing too

Hmm…Just that most of the temples/ wats ⛩ ⛩ are not with English signages/ tourist information, including the name of each temple/ wat. So far, from her personal visiting experiences, she noted only Wat Maha That ⛩ & Wat Okat ⛩ are available in English. The rest are all with Thai/ Laos languages only 😔 Wish all can be enhanced by adding the English information soon for the benefits of foreign tourists 👫👭👬
