About Luang Prabang

The ancient Laotian capital of Luang Prabang boasts colonial architecture, coffee shops and bakeries that are little changed since Laos became a French protectorate in 1893 before achieving independence in 1954.

Visitors can take part in the daily alms giving ceremony which takes place as the sun rises when around 200 Buddhist monks leave their temples to walk silently through the streets to collect offerings of food.
