I had a great time in Luang Prabang. I stayed in a Guest House in this neighborhood and there are many attractions to see and do here.

These attractions include the Night Market, Morning Market, Temples, National Palace and Theater, steps to the Stupa and overview, Mekong River, etc. There are also restaurants, shops, bars, etc. All of these attractions are located next to each other, very walkable.

It wasn't too crowded when we were there. Lovely to walk around with lots to see and shop keepers do not constantly hassle you like some places in asia. I hope they protect this from being over touristed like their neighboring countries as it is quite special. Lots of cafes and places to buy a beer and just watch the world go by.

The old section of Luang Prabang remains one of the best maintained heritage cities in Asia. Many of the buildings and temples are very old, but positively even new constructions are largely kept within traditional styles, which helps to maintain the historic vibe of the town.

We spent 3 nights in Luang Prabang during our trip to Laos and did almost a day just walking around to explore the city. Very nice place to visit.

We loved strolling through the beautiful old quarter, which has a very relaxed atmosphere. There is so much to see - stylish colonial buildings, beautiful temples and loads of great coffee shops and restaurants. A fantastic place to sit and watch the world go by.

A good place to stroll through for exercise and to check out the shops and restaurants, and to absorb the cultural atmosphere.

When you walk along the old quarter you are transported back in time Some beautiful reconstructed colonies buildings with quirky boutique shops , cafes and restaurants , not forgetting loads of fantastic temples.There are also a lot of old vehicles parked outside hotels and shops .Can easily spend three hrs browsing and spoilt for choice with food options

With very few steep slopes to climb, the centre of Luang Prabang will be a delight for anyone who enjoys an easy stroll or bike ride. Admire the temples, parks and river scenes, dive into the cafe culture, visit the markets and explore the restaurants and bars.

This is why most tourists to Laos visit Luang Prabang, and it really is stunning.

So many temples, the museum, and old buildings - you can wander around and around for hours.

Just don't get sunburnt!

You are in Luang Prabang, the very crown jewel of Laos and capital of the ancient Kingdom of Lan Xang Hom Khao (1353-1707), also referred to as Lan Sang, Lane Sang and Lane Xang. As one of the best preserved cities of South East Asia, strolling along its "Old Quarter" is a magical experience. Take your time and enjoy this beautiful city, a perfect representative of Laos' culture and traditions. Visit its sacred temples with roofs that sweep low to the ground and impressive gilt panels. Wake-up early and attend - in complete silence - the "Sai Bat" ceremony ("Morning Alms Giving"), honoring the saffron-robed Buddhist monks and novices. Shop - and haggle - in its Morning and Night markets. Enjoy the awesome scenary and the sense of timelessness on the banks of the Mekong and Nam Kham rivers. No wonder, Unesco has appointed Luang Prabang, in 1995, a World Heritage Site, due to "an outstanding example of the fusion of traditional architecture and Lao urban structures with those built by the European colonial authorities in the 19th and 20th centuries"! One more reason to do not miss it. Enjoy!
