Luang Prabang, a serene city situated in northern Laos, has been a UNESCO and world heritage site since 1995, drawing visitors from all over the world. Despite having only around 130,000 inhabitants, the city’s allure and elegance make it a popular destination for tourists seeking an offbeat vacation.

The city boasts of numerous temples, but one of the oldest and most beautiful is Vat Xiengthong, built by Lao’s first king, King SetthathiRath, in 1560. Another impressive building is the Formal Royal Palace, which dates back to the same period of French colonialism, 1904-1960.

However, the biggest temple and a must-see for tourists is Wat Visounnarath. Its watermelon-shaped stupa attracts both worshippers and tourists alike, and it’s a breathtaking sight to behold.

If you’re a nature enthusiast, then you must visit the Peninsula, an awe-inspiring location surrounded by mountains and flanked by the Mekong and Nam khan rivers. You can unwind and enjoy the beautiful view while savoring the delicacies in the many local restaurants and bars on both riversides.
