Luang Prabang is one sleepy little town. As a tourist, there isn’t much to do but that’s OK because it isn’t a been-there-done-that destination. We borrowed the hotel bicycles to cruise along the Ankang river, got a Laos massage (very similar to Thai massage, which is quite painful), ate and shop at the night market. We love the food and sticky rice goes well with everything.
Here are some of random shots I took around town. Click on the image to see full size. Enjoy!
Some shots are more difficult than others. I only brought with me a fixed 20mm lens and my legs are my zoom. To capture this shot, I’m practically just 20 feet away from this guy and wading in the mud.
But some shots are much easier. I was strolling through town, got tired, and plopped on a bench. Then the monks were streaming back to the temple after receiving alms. I sat on my butt and fired away.
