Cookingclass at Tamnak Lao
My first recommendation in the travel guide Luang Prabang is taking a cookingclass. It is always a good thing to indulge yourself in some good Asian -Laotion food!! You learn about the local products and you get some insight on how to use them. From all the lessons I took I use some in my cooking at home. I love that my way of cooking has evolved in some combination of all kinds of cultures.
At this cookingclass you also get to take a book home with all the receipes

Take a cookingclass at Tamnak Lao Restaurant! I learned a lot and it was fun too!
Pak Ou Caves
Take a boat on the Mekong river and within a half an hour you’ll find these caves. Being on the river for a change is great but to find that the caves are filled with lots of buddha statues makes it a great afternoon triip if you ask me!
Kuang Si Waterfall
This is the famous bright blue waterfall near Luang Prabang. It is defenitely worth a visit. I visited it in the morning and it was chilly … And do you know why the colour of the water is that beautiful? Because it is freezin’ cold!! So I didn’t dare to dive in 🙂 But walking around it and looking at the colour was amazing!
But I can imagine you wanting to swim here on this great spot near Luang Prabang!

This must be included in the travel guide Luang Prabang
Luang Prabang Market
There is ofcourse the local morning market. It is always worth a visit if you like to see how the locals get their vegetables and meat!
Also you’ve got the eveningmarket for the tourists. I visited that every evening to go for dinner in a side alley and buy a plate full of delicious food!!
Early Morning – Travel Guide Luang Prabang
Tak Bat – Monks early morning
Every morning the monks are walking the streets in Luang Prabang in search for their alms. The locals give them something and it is impressive to see.
If you go and look for them make sure that you are not bothering them. It is part of their religion and they don’t want a picture with you! you can ofcourwse make a picture from an appropiate disctance and make sure not to flash.
There are many temples to be visited. Some are visible from the mainstreet ofcourse but if you go roam the area you’ll find many more that are worth a visit. You can start across the street from Phu Si where you have Wat May Souvannapoumaram temple.
This temple was found a bit of the mainroad.
Als across the street from Phu Si Mountain is the impressive Royal Palace. It is defenitely worth the visit to get to know a bit more about the royals and their way of living in Laos.

Hi Frank, I did love it. It was very touristy but it was my first stop for a couple of days and I enjoyed the food very much, in the small streets….Very cheap. I biked around the city, I do love to bike so you get around easily and also away from the busy streets. I did thougt it was a easy laidback town. Went to the Kuang Si Waterfall. Great colour!
