We finally reached Luang Prabang and I was never so happy to get off that boat. It turns out that 2 days on a boat is a really long time if it’s not a cruise-ship. One day would’ve sufficed!
Luang Prabang is an ancient city peppered with temples on every corner while monks dressed in bright orange roam the streets. It’s rich in royal history with stunning river views and french villas. I took a stroll when I first arrived and felt like I was in a tropical europe! There were cobblestone roads and cute cafes and boutiques. It was like traveling back in time to an ancient Asia caught between the present and the past.
Kouang Si waterfalls an hour outside of Luang Prabang! It looked like the movie set from the film Avatar. As you walked up there were waterfalls upon waterfalls trickling down to the very bottom.
