Luang Prabang, Laos

The first time I visited South East Asia I didn’t even consider Laos as a travel destination; top of mind for me had always been Angkor Wat, the Ho Chi Minh Trail and the beaches of Thailand.

I wish I had considered Laos a long time ago.

Luang Prabang, a UNESCO World Heritage City, is mesmerizing. The people are friendly, the food is sublime, the colonial architecture magnificent and the pace of life is, as you may have heard it described, blissfully slow paced.

This is a quick look at some of the work we’ve done and things we’ve seen in Luang Prabang.
