Plain of Jars
Plain of Jars : Michelin's recommendations
The purpose of these enormous, 2 000-year-old jars dotted around the Plain of Jars to the south of Phon Sa Van remains a mystery. Were they funerary monuments or containers for wine and rice? Nobody knows. Site 1 may boast the largest jar (6t) but sites 2 and 3 are also worth a visit.
