LUANG PRABANG, LAOS: This is a very unique, interesting place to visit. The best hotel is the Belmond. Great service and location.
If you work out, all Belmond property gyms are small but still have enough stuff to get a workout. Definitely try the local food. Different from other Asian foods.
You eat the sticky rice with your hands. Tamarind probably has the best local food. At 530am definitely do the almsgiving (feeding of the Monks).
It is an amazing experience. Bring sticky rice to give to them. After that go to the local morning market.
Such a neat experience. You see them selling live chickens, snakes, bugs, frogs, fruits, and it is a very very local market. Do a boat trip along the Mekong, to the whiskey-making market and the Buddha caves.
If you stay at Belmond their boat is amazing so book that boat. BELMOND IS AN AMEX fine hotels property.
