You are in Luang Prabang, the very crown jewel of Laos and capital of the ancient Kingdom of Lan Xang Hom Khao (1353-1707), also referred to as Lan Sang, Lane Sang and Lane Xang. As one of the best preserved cities of South East Asia, strolling along its "Old Quarter" is a magical experience. Take your time and enjoy this beautiful city, a perfect representative of Laos' culture and traditions. Visit its sacred temples with roofs that sweep low to the ground and impressive gilt panels. Wake-up early and attend - in complete silence - the "Sai Bat" ceremony ("Morning Alms Giving"), honoring the saffron-robed Buddhist monks and novices. Shop - and haggle - in its Morning and Night markets. Enjoy the awesome scenary and the sense of timelessness on the banks of the Mekong and Nam Kham rivers. No wonder, Unesco has appointed Luang Prabang, in 1995, a World Heritage Site, due to "an outstanding example of the fusion of traditional architecture and Lao urban structures with those built by the European colonial authorities in the 19th and 20th centuries"! One more reason to do not miss it. Enjoy!

There's something about Luang Prabang that draws us back every couple of years or so and the old city is a huge reason why we always seem to revisit. Yes, it is touristy, full of tour companies and expensive restaurants and coffee shops, but it's still possible to find quiet, peaceful, shady streets by the river where hours can pass by drinking coffee and watching life on the busy Mekong or Nam Khan. Even in seven years things have changed dramatically, but it's always Luang Prabang, and to a similar extent Ubud in Bali, that seems to draw us back to its laid-back lifestyle. No doubt, once this dreadful time in which we find ourselves at present has long gone, we'll return to Luang Prabang time and time again.

The old quarter is right in the main area of town. It is not very long and it is interesting to see the old colonial buildings some dating back centuries. The area is now all shops,bars and restaurants so is good for a stroll and to stop and have a drink or snack. Well worth a visit if you are in Luang Prabang.
