I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to go to Laos last summer. One of the cities I fell in love with was Luang Prabang. It’s a UNESCO world heritage site, a city stuck in time, with the most beautiful and resilient people I have ever met. If you ever have the chance to travel to this city, you will never forget it.
Discovered: Downtown Luang Prabang. Restaurants and shops line the streets across from temples on every corner. Check out the temples during the day or even climb Mt. Phousi from the middle of town for amazing views of the Mekong. Nighttime downtown is a completely different story, it turns in to an incredible Night Market full of gifts to bring back to your loved ones.
