I have just returned from an 6 day holiday in Luang Prabang. The holiday was everything I had hoped it would be and more.
One mistake I did make was panicking over accommodation. My first choice on the internet was full and I ended up eventually having to accept 8th choice. I ended up in a nice enough hotel but it was a mile out of town and it did not have th character and charm of the in-town hotels.
What I should have done was book my first night on line and then toured the town on my second day and checked in to a guest house of my choice. There is so much accommodation in Luang Prabang but not much of it on line. The locals also advised me that this is what I should have done.
Luang Prabang is beautiful as are its people. A joy to be experienced before it changes..... which it will. Whether you simply want to chill out or have an activity holiday, the choice is yours and all the options are there!
