Luang Prabang

Luang Prabang is regarded by many as the most attactive cities (or town would be more accurate description) in Asia, if not the world. The former royal capital has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site due to its conbination of  Buddhist temples, French achitecture and historic Laotian buildings set among the green hills.

The main road, Xiang Thong, of Luang Prabang is a wonderful patchwork of traditional Lao wooden houses and hints of European architecture - reminders of when Laos was part of the French colony of Indochine. Golden-roofed wats (temples), decorated with mosaics and murals of the life of Buddha sit under the gaze of wrap-around balconies and 19th century shuttered windows.

As a visitor, you cannot help but be amazed by the tidiness and cleanliness of perhaps the most charming city in all of south-east Asia. With UNESCO so closely involved and a largely highly responsible group of local business owners, the pressures of mass tourism development have been held at bay, but for how much longer remains to be seen.
