Peaceful ancient Luang Prabang

Considered as being the heart of Laotian culture, Luang Prabang was the ancient royal capital with glistening pagodas and extensive natural beauty...
 
Tourism is not a strength of Laos country but peaceful beauty here is a unique attraction for travelers. Luang Prabang is a favorite highlight of any traveler coming to the land of a million elephants.
 
Luang Prabang was once the capital of the Kingdom of Laos from the 14th century to 1975. Nowadays, Luang Prabang city is under Luang Prabang province and old capital of Laos recognized by UNESCO as world cultural heritage. Luang Prabang is 425 km to the North of Vientiane, by the Mekong River.
 
What attracts visitors to Luang Prabang is the peaceful beauty of the landscape, architecture and daily life here. The monks dressed in orange walking through the ancient streets in early mornings to beg  is probably the most characteristic image of Luang Prabang. Each tourist coming here tries to get up early to watch that peaceful and idyllic picture of the monks and wish to once bend the knee on roadside to bring food to them.
