Under Construction - coming soon!

Luang Prabang is the perfect place to take it easy and relax for a couple of days - despite being quite touristy, they keep it real in Luang Prabang with a well kept fusion of traditional Lao and French Colonial style - concerning architecture as well as the cuisine.
New buildings have to be in either one of these typical architectures - there are no ugly skyhigh tourist hotels in this town.
And the food.....what can I say about the food?
Wait for my tips on the one and only riverweed with garlic, sesame and chili or the Green Elephant or just the hundreds of street stalls with fresh baguette or street grills with Mekong fish, cafes, restaurant terraces along the riverside.....or....or...or......

But why writing when a pic says more than a thousand words, my Luang Prabang Video Part I and Part II tell more than 1000 pics...

But the biggest surprise was bumping into a fellow VT-member while walking along a night market......XUESSIUM! Check out his detailed Luang Prabang page to get a better impression.
My page is still under construction and that will take a while.....I have too many construction grounds at once.....

    Hi Chris, eine sehr gute LP-Seite. Sieht so aus, als hätte ich eine ganze Menge verpasst, als ich vor 4 Jahren da war... Vor allem das morgendliche Ritual der Mönche! *grmpf* Golo
