Views of Laos: Luang Prabang
The second part of our trip through Laos finds us in the former capital of Luang Prabang. The old city, with no buildings over four stories, is bounded by the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers and, other than a small area of bars for young people, is quite lovely.
The full set of photographs from this part of the trip can be found here.
