Visiting the former royal city Luang Prabang in Laos

Temple in Luang Prabang, Laos

Reposting from 2008. Although I did make some postings about Luang Prabang, I saw that I actually not made postings from my latest trip to Luang Prabang in 2008. Yes some years ago already. The first time I was in Luang Prabang was in 1997 when we had planned to stay 2 or 3 days but stayed for about 1 week at the then brand new Say Nam Khan River View Hotel (and it is still there). The next time I did return I was on a tour in 2004. The next time and last time (until 2020) was in 2008 when we stayed at the lovely Lotus Villa in the historical quarter. Luang Prabang is the former capital and former royal city of the former "Kingdom of Laos" and still the capital city of Luang Prabang province. Located at the confluence of the Mekong River and Kan River, about 300 km north of Vientiane. And it is world famous as 'Unesco World Heritage Site" with beautiful old temples and French colonial style houses. Following are all photos from 2008.

One night in Bangkok and the world is your oyster

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
