Languor in Luang Prabang, Laos
August 9-15, 2012
I find that some of my favorite places are those in which you can really just while away by hanging out at more affordable neighborhood cafes with wi-fi or bookshops with friendly and accommodating owners, walking along streets with nostalgic charm, visiting the occasional exhibit/museum, watching the sunset by the Mekong River, and partake of food from the night market.
Read the rest of this post for some cheapskate tips and lazy snaps c/o this lethargic traveler. :P
My First Recommended To-Do in Luang Prabang:
Slow down, Stay Another Day
August 9, 2012 - Luang Prabang, Laos
When traveling, it’s so easy for tourists to cram “all” possible activities in a matter of 2-3 days. The perhaps not all-too-mainstream Stay Another Day Exhibit on the second floor of Kopnoi in Luang Prabang is one of those things that I recommend travelers to visit and learn from on their first day in Luang Prabang.
Day 1 (Part 3 of 3): A Surprise Cambodian Arts & Crafts Reprise
After my walk to Siem Reap’s Old Market for beautiful textile products galore, I decided to continue walking on to Artisans d’Angkor, which I spotted on my map and was naturally intrigued by. Again, I don’t really remember how long I was walking, but it was probably around 15 minutes away from the Old Market.
I didn’t realize it was one of the very same places I visited some 5 years ago on a very touristy trip to Siem Reap with my parents and their badminton friends. I was still glad to be there to admire yet again and be able to share it with you, my lovely readers.
