In early February, I spent just a little over 48 hours in the adorable town of Luang Prabang, Laos. Luang Prabang was the last stop on my two-week Asia adventure, which included Bhutan and Bangkok. Before visiting, I read quite a few blogs with varied opinions on Luang Prabang, ranging from “omg, it’s the cutest town ever” to “it’s tourist hell.”
I’m happy to report that I loved my time in Luang Prabang and wish I had a couple more days to spend here. Yes, it’s a small town and you can see most of the attractions in a couple of days. However, the entire town has a chill, laid-back vibe and you’ll definitely want to slow down here. From watching monks cross the bamboo bridge to the luxurious spas, there’s plenty here to occupy your time.
I’ll be writing an itinerary guide shortly, but in the meantime, here are some photos that will make you want to book at trip to Luang Prabang ASAP.

Stunning pictures you’ve taken there! Love the colours the monks’ robes bring to the street scene.

these are GORGEOUS! Since Laos is a landlocked city I have never given it much thought (most of my travel is with diving in mind). However, apparently the Mekong River has a mysterious sunken wreck in it that has not been seen by many since the viability is so poor and the conditions so dangerous. Very interesting.
The colors are so rich and vibrant. Looks like an amazing culture!
OMG your photos are amazing! I love the shots of the animals, the food and the people. The place looks absolutely magical and now I cannot wait to visit Laos. Awesome post!
These photos are gorgeous. I shared! Your title definitely says it all, now I want to go.
I have been to Luang Prabang and it was one of the most magical places of Asia. These photos borught back some nice memories.

Your photos are just incredible. I’ve never been to this part of the world but now I’d be so keen too. All the colours are so intense, I feel like I can touch it! Thanks for sharing your insane photography skills!
You are right, your photos have convinced me! I’m also planning a 2 or 3 week trip to SE Asia this year – flying into Bangkok. Which and how many stops do you recommend?
I love all these incredible photos! They show the all the amazing colors and beautiful landscapes from your perspective, thanks for sharing 🙂 I’ll have to add this to my Asia bucket list.
Laos looks so colorful and beautiful! I love the color the monks are wearing. I’ve heard great things about Laos and your photos are giving me the travel bug!
