Luang Prabang Destination
Nestled in the valleys of the mountainous north is luang prabang, a former royal capital and now a World heritage site listed by uneSco. this enchanting city, dominated by golden-roofed temples and bright saffron-robed monks, exudes a spiritual essence that will surely capture your soul.
The sleepy former capital is home to hundreds of monks who inhabit its more than 30 pagoda-like temples, and throughout town a languid air of serenity mingles with a newfound sense of stylishness.
While in luang prabang, you will have a fantastic opportunity to participate in the daily morning ritual of monks collecting offerings of alms (often in the form of sticky rice) from the faithful residents. this tradition is very unique to laos, it being the only Buddhist nation still preserving the ritual.
