There is much to love about the city of Luang Prabang in Laos.
It sits at the confluence of the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, so it’s definitely picturesque. It also retains considerable French influence, has great food and every morning Buddhist monks walk the streets for the daily alms giving ceremony (tak bat).
After Thailand, we spent five days in this small city in north central Laos. I really liked the area and could have maybe stayed longer; however, it ended up being a good thing that we only planned for five nights.
Travelling has turned LJ into a bit of a foodie and her food-loving parents couldn't be happier!
She loves trying new foods and will pretty much try anything at least once. She's also really gotten into cooking shows and can't wait to have a full kitchen again.
One of our favourite things to while travelling is a self-guided food tour. Guided food tours can be expensive, but they're totally doable on your own for a fraction of the cost. We basically read a bunch of blog posts from people who did it before us, make a map on our phone with some key locations and notes about the dishes to try, then...spend the entire day eating!
