Lots of action and good range of food and drink - fruit shakes, good bread, and barbeque. My favorite restaurant was Sonphao (with Lao, Western and Japanese food). Night markets go on and on.

Its not that big so take your time and explore. You'll find hidden markets beside the Night Market and lots of little interesting stores and boutiques. Much better than the busy main street.

We followed loosely the trail described in Lonely planet through the historical part of Luang Prabang, enjoyed its teak buildings, walked past the Royal palace museum and visited several wats like Wat Xieng Thong and Wa Visoun.

We ended up on the Mekong waterfront right around 17:15 when the sun goes down over the Mekong river, which was quite magical to watch the orange glow disappear behind the mountains.

When we walked back we heard chanting and stopped to loose ourselves in the melody at Wat Nong Sikhounmuang.

Start on the main street, then turn off to any side street going towards the river. All very nice. Clean.
