Vua Meo information
Lonely Planet review
Don’t miss the outlandish Vua Meo, a palace constructed in a kind of bizarre ‘oriental baroque’ architectural style on the northern edge of town. It was built in 1921 by the French to keep the Flower H’mong chief Hoang A Tuong happy, and looks like a cross between an exotic church and a French chateau. A shop selling ethnic minority crafts is also here.
