South East Asia is definitely one of my favourite regions to explore and that's mainly for three reasons: food, culture and budget friendly destinations.

Luang Prabang is not the capital of Laos, but it definitely has the most coolest attractions and fun things to do.
We entered Laos by road from Udon Thani( Thailand). This was the first time I entered a country by road. Walk in immigration, like they call it. We took a bus and then reached Vientienne, the capital of Laos. After much contemplation , we decided we shall simply go to Luang Prabang, instead spending any time in Vientienne.
The next day, we took a bus for around Rs. 1200/- to Luang Prabang. It was a very long uneasy 10 hours journey! However the view was amazing! The whole route was laced with enchanted mountains and misty skies.
Once we reached Luang Prabang, we found a very nice place to stay, but we found it far from the night market, which is more happening!
So the next day we decided to move to a place closer to the centre, and it was the smartest decision. This is one the issues any one faces when you book via online apps.
Now we had 2 days to explore Luang Prabang, and here are the TOP 3 things one must do:
