Laos - Luang Prabang & Around (Chapter)
This is the Luang Prabang & Around chapter from Lonely Planet's Laos guidebook.
Nowhere else can lay claim to Luang Prabang’s old-world romance of 33 gilded wats, saffron-clad monks, faded Indochinese villas and exquisite Gallic cuisine. At the sacred confluence of the Mekong River and the Nam Khan, this city has rightfully gained mythical status as a travellers’ Shangri La.
