What people are saying about Luang Prabang

Wonderful time spent with Mister Somsay learning about Laung Prabang thru food, culture and tradition. Started our day with a coffee (or whatever your morning drink might be), and delicious breakfast at one of the town's most renowned local noodle shops --> then off to our adventures. Markets, shops, pathways and grass-ways: we sampled so many new and interesting foods that are best known from Luang Prabang, that kept our energy high. Mister Somsay is cheerful as he greets the vendors with smiles and chats...his English is near perfect, and translates anything you wish. Highly recommend this experience: time well enjoyed.
