Luang Prabang is a quaint and quiet town in the northern part of Laos. Despite a population of 50,000 and a steady stream of foreign tourists, the town retains a lot of its small-town charm, due in part to the fact that the town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is home to a plethora of temples and monasteries. French colonial architecture mixes with traditional Laos-style with ease, local-run and foreign-run business intermingle along the streets, and all around are happy and healthy looking pets–seemingly one in front of each storefront. Laotian people are polite and friendly, quiet monks can be seen roaming the streets, and despite the countries reputation for poor infrastructure outside the cities, everything within the city limits looks and feels clean and safe. It’s a nice place, and we enjoyed every minute of our time there. Here are some of our favorite shots that best sum up beautiful Luang Prabang.
