Luang Prabang, Laos

there were many activities for me to do but the one that captured my attention was the river tours here. I ended up taking a long boat tour along the beautiful river and visited a local and traditional place called Whisky Village in Luang Prabang which was rather interesting especially if you are a first timer here. After the village, the boat will continue on its journey to the amazing Pak Ou Buddha Caves . This is an easy visit as there is a proper jetty here and walking up the caves is only a short walk. But inside the caves, that is what totally captivated me. Also, if you are exploring the main town area, don't forget to visit Phu Si Hill in Luang Prabang for an amazing Lao sunset. Be prepared for a decent hike uphill via stairs here and for those who are not that fit, I recommend you make a few stops to catch your breath. Tip: Go early to get a good spot.
