Luang Prabang

So after Pai Rachel and I took an 8 or 9pm bus to the Thai-Laos border, and crossed the river in the morning to get into Laos.

The plan was to take 2 days taking a boat up the Mekong, but once we got there and learned that there was a one day bus to Luang Prabang we opted for that since we were a little short on time.

The town is a UNESCO World Heritage site and really mellow and lovely.

Here are some street shots::

The Mekong wraps around the town, and there are restaurants and cafes that line the road looking out on the river::

I also had real, genuine strong-brewed coffee every morning that we were there, and some yummy croissants and things at breakfast::

There was a temple at the top of the hill looking out over the town::

And lots of gorgeous buildings and a few sweetsweet cars --

Loved it.

and love to you all!


  1. You are soooo skinny! Eat some more noodles! Also, is the breakfast shot at L'Etranger? If so, it's one of my favorite indulgences and I'm glad you found one another.

  2. and I love your scarf in the temple shot.

  3. I remember the coffee there! Soooo yummy! And the baguette with Laughing Cow cheese was a favorite of mine in Laos.

    I also enjoy your scarf... such a good purchase!
