Wat Xieng Thong
Wat Xieng Thong is a Buddhist temple known to be one of the main Lao monasteries. Like everything else in Luang Prabang, Wat Xieng Thong is modest in its features. I’m sure if I were Buddhist, I would’ve appreciated the temple more due to its religious importance, but it was hard to specially because there was virtually no English signage. Although it’s clean and well-maintained, it’s a tough sell compared to the other many temples in Indochina. LBKX2-7LBKX2-8LBKX2-9LBKX2-10LBKX2-11LBKX2-12LBKX2-14

Kuang Si Falls
All these photos don’t do it justice; the Kuang Si Falls are simply a must-see on any trip to Luang Prabang. It’s almost an hour away from the city. Most visitors take a tuk-tuk to the falls, but I was fortunate enough the locals whom I had met the previous night offered me to hitch a ride with them. The admission fee for foreigners is only 20,000 LAK and you can bring in your own food and drinks and have a picnic while enjoying this absolutely breathtaking natural masterpiece. LBKX1-12LBKX1-13LBKX1-14LBKX1-15LBKX1-16LBKX1-17LBKX1-19LBKX1-20LBKX1-21LBKX1-22LBKX3-14LBKX1-23LBKX1-24LBKX1-25LBKX1-27LBKX1-28LBKX1-29LBKX1-35LBKX1-36LBKX1-38LBKX1-39LBKX1-40LBKX1-30LBKX1-31LBKX1-32LBKX1-34LBKX1-33
