Nestled away in the convergence of two rivers in north central Lao PDR, Luang Prabang is distinguished by its outstanding fusion of traditional European architecture of Laotian wooden houses, which stand as reminders of its colonial times. Blending two different cultural traditions, its townscape is exceptionally well-preserved with golden-roofed temples adorned with intricate murals and mosaics, set against a backdrop of rugged mountains and lush greenery.
Renowned for being a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Luang Prabang is a small atmospheric town often compared to the famed tourist destination, Venice in Italy. Deemed as one of the most charming cities in all of South East Asia, Luang Prabang is steeped in history, having formerly been a capital of a kingdom of the same name.
The city is home to various cultural and natural attractions, better experienced by finding centrally located accommodation in Luang Prabang. Kiridara helps travellers make the discovery of the city more convenient. One such special highlight among the many attractions is Wat Xieng Thong. Located between the Nam Khan and Mekong rivers, this beautiful temple houses a number of gilded structures. Rich in natural splendor, the Kuang Si Falls located outside of town, are in stark contrast to the area’s widespread historic man-made structures. Offering an unparalleled glimpse into the rural lifestyle, these cascading marvels of nature remain one of the most popular swimming spots in the region.
