Luang Prabang

Luang Prabang, literally “Royal Buddha Image”, is a city in North central Laos at the confluence of the Nam Khan and Mekong River about 300km north of Vientiane and it is the capital of the Luang Prabang province. With a population of only 50,000 it exudes calm and peace and many people wished they could spend more time here. The old town center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The main part of the city consists of four main roads on a peninsula between the Nam Khan and Mekong Rivers. The city is well known for its numerous Buddhist temples and monasteries. Every morning, hundreds of monks from the various monasteries walk through the streets collecting alms. One of the major landmarks in the city is a large steep hill on which sits Wat Chom Si.

Many of the cities spectacular golden wats sit serenely amongst the cafes and restaurants offering the finest and freshest international cuisine. The main attractions in Luang Prabang, besides attending an early morning Buddhist Blessing Ceremony, are the Royal Palace, Wat Sene and the magnificent Wat Xiengthong. A late afternoon climb towards Wat Chom Si and a panoramic view of the city at sunset and the Mekong River is highly recommended.
