We’ve been in Luang Prabang for just over a week. My Dream Boutique Resort has turned out to be just that – swimming pool, a/c, room service, free bikes not to mention the fact it’s also spotless and has proper plumbing!
Luang Prabang itself is a mish-mash of Laos and French style, with trendy boutiques and cafe bars set alongside back street kitchens and market stalls. The town sits on the banks of the Mekong river which flows through SE Asia. The locals rely on it for transport, food, washing and having fun!
The temperature regularly hits 40 deg in the middle of the day and the humidity gets as high as 60%. Needless to say you only venture out early in the morning or after sunset
On Tuesday we head down to Vang Vieng, the tubing and party capital of Laos – hopefully the last week has recharged our batteries sufficiently to keep up with the 20 somethings!
