Luang Phrabang travelogue picture
It was about a 40mins flight from Vientaine To Luang Phrabang on this really small plan of 19 seater if I am not mistaken. Luang use to be a capital for the Lang Xang kingdom in the 14th century and many temples was build around the town. The interesting part of this town is there are many ban or village next to each other in this small town and each ban has it own temple.

Favourite spots:

Kuang Xi Waterfall which is located about 2 hours away from Luang Pharbang by boat along the mekong river and then by truck for another half.

What's really great:

Would suggest to get a few people and hire a boat for a half day out to Pak Ou Cave and this buddhist temple with a very interesting cave.

Accommodations:

Stay in this guesthouse called Boungnasouk, along the Mekong River. They charge about USD10 for a room with fan with en suite hot bath. Very clean you have to remove your shoes and leave it downstairs but I normally bring it up with me.

Restaurants:
