Luang Prabang Travel Guide: 1,014 reviews and 2,541 photos
This lovely and peaceful city was the royal capital of the Kingdom of Laos, until the comunist take-over in 1975. It´s located on the Mekong river, 425 kms north of Laos actual capital Vientiane.
This Unesco World Heritage city has a strong french colonial touch, with elegant houses, more than 30 ancient buddhist temples and an amazing night market.
Luang Prabang is one of the most impressive cities in Asia, lots of temples to visit, a special buddhist athmosphere of peace, mixed with a chic french ambiance, definetily is my favourite city in Asia.
- Pros:Beautiful, charm and peaceful.
There is few nightlife in the city, everything is closed around midnight; but Hive is a good option if you want to meet... more travel advice
This litle temple near the river was the first temple a visit in the city, not so impressive as other Luang Prabang... more travel advice
