Luang Prabang is the former royal capital of Laos, a relaxing town located on the Mekong River, about 900 km northeast of Bangkok, Thailand. The fusion of French and Asian culture and charm make for a wonderful setting to experience a unique culture.
The 200-year old Wat Siphoutthabat stands at the base of Mt. Phousii in the heart of historic Luang Prabang, the largest school for monks in the city. The surrounding hills contain traditional villages, waterfalls and other scenic pleasures.
