Luang Prabang, in Laos, had been my fave place on my last trip to SE Asia so my expectations were very high, and these expectations were transferred to Katie. Luckily we weren’t disappointed – Luang Prabang is as gorgeous as ever!

|Best coffee in town!|
|I will always dream of Luang Prabang fruit shakes|
The night market is incredible and quite unique – less “same same” and more “but different”.
We also rented a boat and a local man took us on a lovely ride down the river. We saw locals playing in the water, beautiful rolling hills and had a very enjoyable and romantic time – how very un-SobCoe.
I don’t know what else to say but that you should check out all the aforementioned things, especially the waterfalls, and I must insist you visit Luang Prabang.
