The beautiful acquainted town of Luang Prabang is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the former capital of Laos. It is a great place where time just slows down and there is not a whole lot to do but definitely worth exploring, very easy to walk around on foot or you can opt for a tuk tuk.
In Luang Prabang you will be able to visit golden roofed museums and temples with the influence of colonial French buildings encompassing the fusion of traditional and urban structures, delicious food markets, stalls of clothes and souvenir and monks walking around.
Here are some images I snapped, adventuring on foot…
The Bamboo Bridge is built by families of the community and is open for 6 months of the year after the rain season is over, with an entrance fee of 5,000 kip which contributes to the maintenance and the salary of the families who built the bridge. It is built over the Nam Kahn river and it is removed during the rainy season due to strong current. Across the bridge is even a more small and quiet town, a great escape from the hustle and bustle…
Mount Phousi is a great place to watch the sunset with an entrance fee of 20,000 kip. You just have to embrace several steps to enjoy a 360 spectacular degree outlook of the town centre, landscapes and mountains and the Mekong River. It was a humid day and I was running out of clean clothes..love it.
Hope you enjoyed this edition and have a lovely week. 🙂
