Luang Prabang is the ancient capital of the Kingdom of Laos, located in the north of the Laos mountains, at the meeting place of the two tributaries of the Mekong River.
The peaceful ancient capital of Luang Prabang is especially attractive to tourists because of the natural beauty and splendor of historical and religious monuments built by many different dynasties, in which each architectural work is unique and has high artistic value.
Luang Prabang was once known as the center of Lao Buddhism. With more than 30 magnificent royal architectures, most of which were built in the 14th century, nearly 40 temples and pagodas were built by different dynasties, and hundreds of traditional Lao wooden houses were interwoven with European architecture. Marking a colonial period, Luang Prabang is a unique preserved example of architectural art, recognized by UNESCO as a cultural heritage of humanity.
Another attraction of Luang Prabang is the night market, a unique art complex with stalls located close together in the roadway along Sisavangvong Street where only for pedestrians. Under the yellow light, Lao silk scarves, fabrics, hand embroidery, or hand-painted paintings on paper seem more vibrant and glittering.
The food here has many similarities with Thai cuisine. Most of the dishes are spicy, and hot, with lots of chilies, fish sauce, and garlic. Salads are one of the best specialties. Overall, the food is affordable, not too expensive. You can eat at the central street night market. Or more advanced are Lao and French-style restaurants located along the banks of the Mekong River.
