Leo Laksi’s Bangkok And Back

Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained

Bangkok to Laos – “36 hours in Luang Prabang” – New York Times travel article

Luang Prabang is one of the best-kept secrets in South East Asia.  However, it has been “discovered” by tourists.  Just a few years ago, one could spend a few days there and not see many sightseers.  Visiting beautiful temples, boating up the Mekong and sitting near the river and eating great Lao food.   Or French.  With beer Lao in one hand and a French red wine in the other.  I would recommend that you visit sooner not later.

Wat Xieng Thong and the Pak Ou caves are worthy of a close examination.

The New York Times travel article recommends an excellent 2 day itinerary.  Also, this website has some of the best photos of Luang Prabang.  Take a look and you will be inspired to visit.
