One of Southeast Asia’s most charming cities, Luang Prabang may no longer be Laos’ capital, but it remains its heart and soul. Balanced on a lush peninsula formed by the confluence of the Mekong and Khan rivers, this town brings together traditional Laos with charming hints of French Indochina in an exciting blend of architectural styles and glimmering temples. The town has been listed as a World Heritage Site since 1995, and is wonderfully well-preserved – it’s beautiful setting against a mountain backdrop only enhances the magical atmosphere.
