Exceptional. Extremely charming yet still authentic area. Highly frequented but worth several promenades as you discover new spaces each time.

we didn't use a guide but we did use the same boat driver - his name is "Air" and he can be found on the river opposit Saffron Coffee - Luang Probang is easy to discover on your own.
