Luang Prabang (LAOS)

free counters Luang Prabang is the jewel of Indochina, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995. The ancient royal city is surrounded by mountains at the junction of the Mekong and its tributary, the Khan river. In the centre of the city is Mount Phousi with stunning views of the surrounding temples and hills. Luang Prabang is a city where time seems to stand still. As part of the UNESCO plan, new buildings have been limited and development must be in keeping with this magical place. Luang Prabang is a living museum, very much alive, open to everyone. It’s a royal town of an ancient kingdom. It’s a survivor of French colonialism. It thrives with two major markets, and a few smaller ones, where tribal peoples from the mountains gather everyday, arriving by fail boats on the river or via mountain roads. The town comes alive at sunrise, when monks march through the streets to receive alms.
