Old Quarter Luang Prabang, Luang Prabang
(4.3/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
Walk the streets with picturesque traditional houses, colonial-style villas, and Lao Buddhist temples at Old Quarter Luang Prabang, part of a bustling UNESCO-protected city area packed with history and culture. A night market, many shops, and restaurants set in pleasant two-story houses on clean, quiet streets give a totally different feel from the madness of other large Asian cities. Check out many temples with practicing monks praying or burning incense, or mingle with locals during their coffee breaks in the street. The nearby Mekong River surrounding this peninsula quarter, as well as abundant frangipani trees add to the overall charm of the place.

  • Just point your feet and go...so many places to go to in Luang Prabang. Temple Street leads down to the Mekong with many Wats and interesting buildings...tehn sit in the shade by the Mekong. 
  • A historic centre, clean, peaceful, with a good balance between tourism and genuine life. Several very interesting markets, as well as temples, of course. Worth a visit!

  • Luang Prabang is an amazing old city on the bank of Mekong river. It was so good to stroll around here and see the world goes by

  • Hotel Ancient Luang Prabang is placed almost correctly on the map. It needs to moved 30 m to south-west to the corner of the small alley. It is a nice hotel and quite even the night market is just outside the door.
  • Dear Sir/Madam, Please remove this property from the map or rename it because the business name had changed to Indigo House Hotel, Thanks, Sales team of Indigo House
  • Beautiful breakfast
  • Viewers beware! Google is wrong. The hotel located at the map position shown is the excellent 5-star Hotel de la Paix. The Ancient Luang Prabang Hotel is on Sakkaline Road.
