Luang Prabang

This place is a gem! It’s a stunning little town on the edges of the Mekong with almost as many Buddhist monks as tourists. Actually that’s a lie, there are way more foreigners getting around the streets then anyone else really and you can see that its starting to take its toll on the area. That being said its still a great place to spend a few days and enjoy one of the cleanest and prettiest places in laos.
