UNESCO recognized Luang Prabang in north central Laos as a World Heritage Site in 1995. The heart of Luang Prabang sits on a tiny peninsula where the Nam Khan and Mekong Rivers join. Within the town, you find the blend of ancient Lao art and architecture with the French colonial influences of the 19th and 20th centuries. Dozens of temples and monasteries, ranging from quaint to grand, dot the town, giving homes and education to hundreds of saffron-robed Buddhist monks who walk the tree-lined streets at dawn receiving alms from the townspeople.
