Our four days luxuriating in Luang Prabang, Laos in the old converted French Governor’s house was a perfect climax to our holiday.
After spending 12 wonderful days in VIETNAM we were ready to take on the neighbouring landlocked country of Laos. Our destination was the former capital, Luang Prabang in north central Laos, that we quickly discovered is full of Buddhist temples and monasteries. Our four days luxuriating in Luang Prabang, Laos in the old converted French Governor’s house was a perfect climax to our holiday.
Sometimes referred to as the town of “a monk’s life”, the enchanting Luang Prabang has a rich religious and cultural heritage and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There is evidence of its French Colonial influence during the 19th and 20th century everywhere you roam throughout the town. This included our fabulous hotel, Sofitel Luang Prabang.
