Luang Prabang Travel Guide

Nearly everyone who has been to Luang Prabang would have marveled at this laid-back city, which is filled with saffron-clad monks, glorious Buddhist temples, quaint colonial buildings and busy bazaars. A visit to Luang Prabang is a step back in time. As such, the ancient town of Luang Prabang was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995.

Compared to the incense peak in Thailand, most temples in Luang Prabang are more tranquil, especially the Royal Palace Museum, Wat Xieng Thong and Wat Mai Suwannaphumaham. Beyond the religious faith, it's full of the strong flavor of life. The whole town is encircled by hazy green mountains, and cafes, restaurants, bars, shops and houses are hidden in the shade of trees. Take a walk through the city, sit down in cafes at the riverside of the Mekong River, then drink a glass of iced beer and enjoy the stunning view over the river… Are you ready to come?
