The acclaimed American magazine TIME called Luang Prabang of Laos a “hidden paradise” and recommended it as one of the 50 greatest places in the world in 2023.
According to the magazine, Luang Prabang and Phuket and the Isan region of Thailand are the only three places in Southeast Asia in the list.
Turquoise waterfalls, Buddhist temples, and sunset boat trips on the Mekong are just a few of Luang Prabang’s highlights. Despite its remote location in the jungled mountains of Laos, the former royal capital is not just for backpackers, it said.
The town boasts luxurious boutique hotels; some, like Amantaka and Sofitel Luang Prabang, are housed in historic French colonial buildings.
Earlier, National Geographic, CNN, Wanderlust and Traveller of Australia also listed Laos as one of the attractive tourist destinations in 2023.
