Luang Prabang Laos--A Gem

Luang Prabang, the ancient city now protected by UNESCO sits at the confluence of the Mekong and Nam Khang Rivers is a must see. With its 33 gilded Wat's (temples)  and old well maintained streets, boutique hotels and character it is a must see. Flights are available into the city from Vietnam and a number of other major locations.There is excellent accommodation, the people are friendly and the place is safe.

We stayed at a boutique hotel called Luang Say Residences which was top class. See Photo's below.

Be sure to walk all the streets, see the early morning presenting of gifts to the monks and also take a side trip to the Kuang Si Waterfalls. Also try some of the excellent restaurants around.
