Luang Prabang is a special sort of Southeast Asian town. It is a little out of the way, and offers the off the beaten path kind of adventure that can appeal to the right kind of family. If you are looking to slow down, enjoy nature, and have the time to delve deeper into you, Luang Prabang is your kinda place. Filled with temples, palm trees, motorbikes, elephants, the mighty Mekong River, and mosquitos, a visit to Luang Prabang is a journey to a land seemingly untouched by time. For an authentic look at Laos cultural traditions and ways of life, we suggest a long stop here to truly experience what was once called the Land of a Million Elephants and the magic that seems to surround one of my favorite cities in the world.
