Welcome to Luang Prabang
Lose yourself in the timelessness of Luang Prabang. Stroll narrow lanes that wind between beautifully-restored Buddhist temples, traditional timber homes, and French colonial structures. Experience for yourself the legendary Lao hospitality. Engage in the daily rhythms of a place and a people shaped by a thousand years of ritual.
Confluence defines Luang Prabang: the old city centre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995, rises from the place where the Nam Khan River flows into the Mekong River. But it’s about more than just water. Here, past flows into present, ethnic cultures from across Northern Laos converge at the Morning and Night Markets, and the city itself yields quickly to the quiet villages and green mountains of the surrounding countryside.
Like its iconic rivers, Luang Prabang is filled with life, dynamic and timeless. We welcome you.
Situated at the confluence of the Mekong and Nam Khan Rivers and surrounded by mountains, the city has long been the centre of Buddhism in Laos and a bustling trade hub for villagers from the surrounding countryside.
