Laos, Luang Prabang

Location: Luang Prabang, Laos

The first photos of this lovely World Heritage site and the day's river cruise

Sunset over Luang Prabang

Evening panorama of Luang Prabang

Sellers at the palace gates

Our group at the entrance to the Presidential palace, next to the Wat Xieng Thong temple

The remarkable sight of the takbat ceremony, devout citizens (and tourists!) gather at dawn to greet lines of saffron clad monks receiving alms. This was outside our hotel.

The night market, full of textiles, beware of the chinese goods

We stopped off at a handicraft village where we saw crafts people such as this basket maker at work.

Boat cruise on the Mekong River

The boat took us to the Tham Ting and Tham Phoum Caves which are supposed to be the most sacred in Laos.

Entrance to the lower caves

We crossed the river to get to lunch at the village of Pak Ou where the view of the arrival of the working elephants in the distance caused much excitement

The caves are full of 1000s of Buddhas brought and left by pilgrims
