Laos - Luang Prabang & Around (Chapter)

8th Edition Feb 2014

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.

  • maps
  • Plunge into the menthol-blue waters of the falls at Tat Kuang Si, some of the most beautiful in all of Laos
  • transport
  • Marvel at the sweeping roof of Wat Xieng Thong, the oldest and most beautiful temple in town
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: History, Sights, Activities, Courses, Tours, Festivals & Events, Sleeping, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping, Pak Ou Caves, Tat Kuang Si, Tat Sae, Ban Phanom & Beyond.
