Luang Prabang


This beautiful city is the pride and joy of all Laotians. As the ancient capital of Laos, Luang Prabang was declared the World Heritage by UNESCO.
Luang Prabang has many historical and natural sites such as the powerful waterfalls Tad Kuang Si and Xé or the impressive caves of Pak Ou. Many activities are available to tourists: temple discovery, elephant ride, jungle treks or visiting the traditional craft villages. The old town is also popular as a destination for shopping with its colorful night market and upscale boutiques offering a wide range of Laos’s crafts.
For Laos’s people, the town is mostly a spiritual place: the ghosts of its glorious past still haunt the National Museum; hundreds of young monks haven't received the teachings of Buddha in glittering temples. A large number of well-preserved colonial houses are also a fascinating side of the city…
