    Beauty, buddhas & baci in Luang Prabang

    February 6 in Laos ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Our last stop before heading “home” to Thailand was Luang Prabang in Laos, another UNESCO World Heritage Centre on our South East Asian tour. We took a riverboat down the mighty Mekong, saw caves littered with age-old Buddha statues, frolicked in 2 beautiful waterfalls, avoided buying scorpion-infused Lao whisky, and were recipients of blessings at a Baci ceremony, a traditional Lao ceremony led by family elders to bring your spirits back together, for luck and strength... oh, and of course, enjoyed a few temples! Luang Prabang is a lovely town absolutely packed with tourists like us, all doing the same things... I would return here, but would spend more time exploring other parts of the country next time.Read more
