L is for Luang Prabang

In 2002, we visited Laos, including a couple of nights in Luang Prabang, which became a Unesco World Heritage Site in 1995. It has historic temples, a beautiful mountain setting and the confluence of the Nam Khan and the Mekong Rivers below.

For more on this holiday, see B is for Bangkok – we stayed there on the way in and out of Laos – and V is for Vientiane.


  1. I believe my dear friend was there last year. The last picture-is that a temple inside a cave?? It is so beautiful and the reclining Buddha is so famous-amazing to see


  2. Anabel, I have not made it to Laos yet…I want to go very soon…it’s getting more crowded with tourists as we speak!
