The small, dusty town of Phonsavan in northern Laos is the capital of Xieng Khuang Province. The main attraction is the Plain of Jars, reminiscent of England’s Stonehenge.
An enigma with many theories, there are no supporting facts as to why hundreds of huge stone jars are scattered across the vast plain. These massive jars, weighing up to 13 tonnes, are carved from solid rock and believed to be ancient funerary urns. Another interesting fact about Phonsavan is that it was one of the most heavily bombed areas in Laos and continues to be littered with unexploded ordnance (UXO).
