Luang Prabang is one of those places that I can just keep returning to over and over again. When I first visited the city a couple of years ago, I was absolutely pulled in by its old town. The picturesque little streets lined with a mix of old French and Asian style buildings made for a perfect scene, while the city’s laid back atmosphere and cafe culture made me feel relaxed and at home. The cultural heart of Laos, Luang Prabang’s streets are also home to too many Buddhist temples to count, while saffron robed monks wander along under umbrellas to protect them from the hot sun.
Luang Prabang is the sort of place where I can just wander around aimlessly, marveling at the architecture and sights and enjoying the local people and culture. My favourite thing to do in the city is to just walk along its streets. I can do this for days and not get sick of it.
In today’s post, I’d like to share some of my photos of Luang Prabang’s streets from my recent visit to the city. I hope that they will make you want to travel to Luang Prabang and see for yourself why I love this interesting city so much.
Well? Do you want to pack your bags right now and head to Luang Prabang? I know I do already 😉
