[Day 2] Laos march 2017 - Out & about! @ Luang Prabang, Laos

It's day 2 at Luang Prabang, Laos and we are loving it here already! A very laid back kinda holiday which we have been looking forward to for awhile to give us a break from the busy hustling KL lifestyle. Without further a due, allow me to show you how my 2nd day here went :) 

We started our day rather late in the AM on day 2. Our hotel also comes with breakfast which we can choose from a list of menu and it's prepared fresh ( I did not get a picture of my breakfast as I forgot my camera in the room - SORRY!).


Anyway, it was a very chilling day for us! It is just a day for us strolling around the town of Luang Prabang, Laos. It's the dry season of the year here at Luang Prabang, therefore weather is kinda hot and humid but that did not stop us from exploring the place! Remember to drink plenty of fluid and bring your necessities (sun screen, sun glasses, cap, etc) when you visit during this time of the year!





After walking around for awhile, we decided to take a rest at this little cafe here overlooking the Mekong River - Parisien Cafe.  

Here's some picture of the cafe for you :)

 






We spotted this very unique baguette served with a layer of lemon meringue and almont slices.


Andddddd of course! How can you miss their famous Beer Lao when you visit Laos! It's one of the best beer I've tried so far! Try it for yourself =P

Next, we thought of visiting the National Museum of Luang Prabang but unfortunately it was close for the afternoon. Therefore, we continued strolling around the town and visit the temples around Luang Prabang :) 

Here's some pictures of the temples!







Wat Xieng Thong is one of the most important of Lao monasteries and remains a significant monument to the spirit of religion, royalty and traditional art. There are over twenty structures on the grounds including a sim, shrines, pavilions and residences, in addition to its gardens of various flowers, ornamental shrubs and trees.


One thing that I realized is that most of the temples here do not need an "entrance fee" to enter. However, only the large ones like Wat Xieng Thong would need a little entrance fees of 20,000 Kip for maintenance purposes.

























It has been a long day walking around the town of Luang Prabang looking and exploring this beautiful town! We are truly amazed by the details and architecture of the temples and building around.Thankfully, the weather was kind to us as it was not too hot later on the day :) We ended our 2nd day over a great dinner place at one of the highly recommended restaurant by many!
