This photo essay is the visual accompaniment to my previous article: What it’s like in Luang Prabang. except this post tends to let the beauty and tranquility of the town shine. In my written description about what it’s like to visit Luang Prabang, I wanted to skip the travel literature glamour and just give you an accurate portrayal of the place.
As these images allude, Luang Prabang can be an exceptionally peaceful, relaxed, and gorgeous place to spend a few days or weeks.

I was really surprised to find Luang Prabang so peaceful and quiet. It was one of my favorite cities in all of Southeast Asia…
It sure looks like a great place to hang out for awhile. Thanks for sharing your photos.
