Luang Prabang is surely a jewel in Indochina, and a well known UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995. Once the
capital of the former kings and an important post along river trade lines, it became a site of interest for visitors from all over the world. The ancient royal city is surrounded by misty mountains at the junction of the Mekong and the small Khan river. The town center is located on a peninsula on an
altitude of 300 meter above see level. Here you find ancient buildings, the royal palace, the national museum, monasteries and temples. In the middle of the small city is the sacred Mount Phousi from which you can enjoy stunning views into the landscapes of the Luang Prabang valley.
Luang Prabang is a provincial capital city where time still seems to stand still. As part of the UNESCO reconstruction plan, new buildings have been limited and old houses and streets receive reconstruction to keep Luang Prabang magical place…
