Created by Mondo for Finnair
Monks in orange attire walk in long procession holding their alms bowls along a street lined by beautiful colonial houses. The rising sun paints the dozens of temples in Luang Prabang with gold.
Mornings in Luang Prabang are magical. Built by the Mekong and surrounded by mountains, Luang Prabang is like an exotic oriental dream from the past century come true.
Former royal capital city of Laos, it has retained its historical appearance and has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The old buildings have been renovated and converted into boutique hotels and intimate restaurants. Time flies by sitting in the coffee houses sipping the delicious Lao coffee and watching the local life.
Luang Prabang’s major sights include the former Royal Palace and its beautiful temples, where you can strike up conversation with the monks and learn about Buddhist culture in Laos. The waterfalls and sacred Pak Ou caves on the surrounding mountains are excellent destinations for day trips.
Luang Prabang is a prefect destination for anyone looking for a deeply cultural experience.
