Today, Laos's capital, Vientiane, reminds us more of some South East Asian provincial town; without its usual hustle and bustle, but with marvellous temples and leisure markets. Luang Prabang in the north part of Laos is certainly one of most culturally interesting places, and the "Plain of Jars" one of the most mysterious destinations in South East Asia.
The town was founded during the late 13th century, and in the mid-16th century the capital of the Lao kingdom (a state known as Lane Xang) was moved to Vientiane from its previous traditional location at Luang Prabang . In 1778 Vientiane came under Siamese control; in 1828 it was sacked and destroyed when the subject Laotian king revolted against Siamese hegemony.
