Land of Karst Mountains

Travel Inspiration

What we propose to share with you, in this issue, is the country of the resilient and genteel people of Laos. Here we discovered turquoise lagoons and mesmerizing cascades, hidden amongst limestone outcrops; chartreuse-green rice paddies leading to gigantic caves and impenetrable jungles; without crossing one single sea, we found thousands of islands on the mighty Mekong River. We guarantee, this issue reveals a country that you did not know existed!

Follow the Almsgiving Ceremony in Luang Prabang

When in Luang Prabang get ready to be an early riser in order to witness the unique almsgiving ceremony of the Buddhist monks. Head to the Sisavangvong street to see the monks queuing for their sticky rice from the worshippers. Let your nose lead you to one of the temples, whose yards are filled with frangipani; or follow your nose to one of the many bakeries for a French baguette in this ex-colonial town.
