Luang Prabang is the pride and joy of all Laotians, It is the ancient capital of Laos and was named a UNESCO world Heritage Site in 1997. The city is a spiritual place for the Laotians: ghosts of its glorious past still haunts the National Museum, the former royal palace, and hundred of young monks still come to learn the teachings of the Buddha in its glittering temples.
