We just spent a few days in picture perfect Luang Prabang, Laos – strolling by the Mekong and Nam Khan Rivers (albeit in crazy heat), scoffing croissants in French/Lao cafes, sampling strong, earthy Lao coffee, exploring serene temples and eating amazing Lao food (fried river weed, anyone?!). More to come soon, but here are a few glimpses of beautiful Luang Prabang…
This was one of my favoutite places when I did an extensive Asia trip a number of years ago..I love the particular details you have honed in on to give a sense of the whole – quite beautiful..
Thanks Catherine! All of LP was beautiful really, it’s one of my favourite places too (first fell in love with it 8 years ago, on my first trip to Asia!)
This was my favorite place in Laos. My heart belongs here! We rented an apartment for 8 days and became totally engrossed in the village. We even taught locals and monks english at the local school. Love it..and miss it.
Brilliant photos! It’s so great up there. I love those fans, always wanted one and now so don’t need it
Oh I miss this place. I fell in love with Laos, it was so much more relaxed than Thailand, untouched and cheap. Loved the people they didn’t hassle or con you. Luang Prabang was virtually empty of tourists when I visited.
