Historic Building on Main Street in Luang Prabang

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Luang Prabang The city is notable as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Features fusion of traditional architecture and Lao urban structures with those built by the European colonial authorities in the 19th and 20th centuries. This building is a retail for Laha natural cotton textiles made in traditional way!

It's unique, remarkably well-preserved townscape illustrates a key stage in the blending of these two distinct cultural traditions. The main part of the city consists of four main roads located on a peninsula between the Nam Khan and Mekong rivers. Everything is walking or biking distance away.

A good place to spend a week or month!

Yes, it was a pleasant stay, except the bus ride back to Thai border. They fill up even the aisles with people and luggage! ;-)
