This is certainly the best place
to get in touch with Lao history and culture. For more than eight centuries
Luang Prabang was the royal residence, the political and cultural center
of Laos. It's considered as one of the gems of Indochina. Today Luang
Prabang is a picturesque small town nestled between the Mekong and Nam
Kan river. Mount Phousi is located in the center of town; a short walk
up will reveal a magnificent view of the town and its surroundings.
The town has various quarters that specialize in traditional crafts
such as silk weaving, liquor making and silver crafting
Especially worth seeing is the
former Royal palace with the National Museum and the town's many pagodas.
Luang Prabang's surroundings have a lot to offer as well: the Pak Ou
Caves with thousands of Buddha images are best explored by boat on the
Mekong River. Other attractive one-day excursions lead to the weavers'
village Ban Phanom and the Kuang Si Waterfalls.
