04D/03N - LUANG PRABANG STOPOVER
04D/03N - Luang Prabang stopover
Luang Prabang
Unforgettable: The northern province of Luang Prabang is certainly one of Laos's crown jewels, and no visit to Laos would complete with spending some time there. Wonderfully situated at the confluence of the Nam Khan and Mekong rivers, it was the royal capital of the Kingdom of Laos. A quiet, lulling peacefulness permeates the city, from the beautiful temples to the warm smiles of the friendly residents. Each morning a long procession of saffron-robed monks take alms from the locals along the main street, while provisions for the day, some quite exotic in nature, are purchased at the morning market. When not touring, a favorite past time of travelers is simply enjoying a coffee and snack in one of the lovely cafes, soaking in the atmosphere of daily life in the postcard-like surroundings. Touring by day includes beautiful temples to discover, an interesting stroll through the morning market, an excursion up on the Mekong River to the fantastic Pak Ou Caves, and a visit to some local villages. In the evening there are many excellent restaurants to choose from in town or along the riverside.
