Old Quarter Luang Prabang, Luang Prabang

(4.3/5 based on 950+ 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.

  • Wonderful Royal Palace, small, well preserved and finished right around the fall of Laos in 1975. Rooms and furniture to the West, with many Thonet chairs and spacious wardrobes, almost like art nouveau in France (Laos was for years a French colony). Nice time near the Royal Palace, all in gold, as typical of the times. Remember that in the Royal Palace is accessed without shoes, that you leave at the entrance as a sign of respect.

  • 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.
