Architecture & Artisans
Luang Prabang is a photographer’s paradise, rich in architectural and artistic imagery and ambiance. White washed French colonial mansions, classic Lao wooden houses, centuries-old Buddhist temples and stupas, neighborhood noodle shops and swish sidewalk cafés. This collaboration of old and new, east and west continues to infuse the historic town with dramatic visuals and beauty. Beyond the town, spectacular waterfalls, karst mountains and river valleys dot the landscape and offer opportunities for trekking, kayaking and cruising on a motorcycle. Laos is home to a staggering number of ethnic tribes, each with their own cultural traditions and textiles. Exploring the local handicraft markets and nearby villages to visit artisan weavers is a must do!
