This is the fourth part of the small "guide" through Laos.

Luang Phrabang is one of the most visited places in Laos. It's on the UNESCO world heritage list, so the city gets more and more visitors every year. The city has a lot of natural and historical sites.
It used to be the capital when Laos was a kingdom and you can clearly see why the king choose this place to be his residency. It's in a very beautiful area of the country, and the city itself is also beautiful.
On each sides of the streets there are hotels, restaurants and temples. One of the main attractions are the beautiful monasteries and temples. In the mornings hundreds of monks walk on the streets collecting donations from the people. Unfortunately we missed it, but maybe the next time .
Places to visit and things to do in Luang Phrabang:
- Buddist temples and monasteries - as I wrote before there are so many gorgeous temples where you can go. usually the young monks are studing outside and if you are lucky you can see the buddhist ceremonies.

We had a really good time here and hope one day we can visit it again. Next time I will write about Vang Vieng, the last city we visited in Laos.
