Even the signs in Luang Prabang are exquisitely designed
After the nauseating but scenic ride on Route 13 from Vang Vieng to Luang Prabang tourists suddenly get rewarded with beautiful French architecture, delicious cafes and tranquil river views. Protected by the Mekong River and the Nam Khan River, Luang Prabang in northern Laos continues to solidify itself as one of the nicest cities in all of South East Asia. A fusion of modern Laos and colonial French architecture make it an extremely photogenic location, with almost every street being meticulously preserved in the UNESCO region of the city. Housing some of the most architecturally sophisticated temples in South East Asia, you will be impressed by the sacred atmosphere of Luang Prabang. Delicious roadside cafes and spotless guesthouses make it a super convenient location for tourists of all ages. To make your trip to Luang Prabang complete, grab a hearty meal at the tourist market, bike around the city and then head out for a scenic river cruise.
