Luang Prabang Library, Luang Prabang

(4.1/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
Luang Prabang Library helps children in rural villages receive education through donated books. The library staff places books in quilted bags and then hangs them on trees near remote settlements lacking schools and other cultural institutions. If you donate to this unconventional library, you will get the chance to visit one of the villages and see excitement of children as they receive the books. Use our Luang Prabang tourist route planner to add Luang Prabang Library and other attractions to your Luang Prabang vacation plans.
