Luang Prabang

This enchanting former royal capital is nestled in a valley shaped by lush, green mountains on a bend between the Mekong and Nam Khan Rivers. Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995, spiritual Luang Prabang exudes peace and tranquillity. The old town feels like a village and its charming streets lined with colonial houses, delightful boutiques and restaurants are a pleasure to stroll around. From watching long lines of saffron robed monks emerging from the morning mist to collect their alms, exploring the abundant temples to relaxing with a cup of strong Lao coffee outside one of the many colonial houses, Luang Prabang cannot fail but charm even the most world weary traveller.
