“beautiful Luang Prabang”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

We loved everything about it: the beautiful colonial architecture of the old town, the street atmosphere - old elegant ladies offering their alms to the monks, temples and flowers, silk and silver treasures in the market, the glimpses in the life on the river...

“Take time to walk around Luang Prabang”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

In addition to the main street, there are lots of small lanes that lead to each of the rivers. It's fun to check out some of the lanes, wander through the morning market and the night market (including the food lane). It's a charming town.

“Evening Chants”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

At the end of the day stroll by the wats that line Sakkarin Rd and enjoy listening to the monks singing their evening chants. I'd suggest starting with the little Wat Pak Kahn located across from the Maison du Patrimoine at the tip of the peninsula. The small group of monks inside produced some mind-blowing harmonies.

“Lots to do day and night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

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.

“Fun to Browse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

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.
