Luang Prabang

Nestled between the Nam Khan and Mekong rivers Luang Prabang is the destination to visit in Laos. Luang Prabang was formerly the capital of a kingdom of the same name. Until the communist takeover in 1975, it was the royal capital and seat of government of Laos. The city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. well known for its numerous Buddhist temples and monasteries. Many travelers enjoy the beautiful morning collection of the alms by monks.

We found ourselves lingering much longer than expected and having difficulties leaving the comforts and beauty of Luang Prabang.
