UNESCO World Heritage Site #23: Town of Luang Prabang

Monks During the Morning Alms Procession in Luang Prabang

Monks return to their temple after the morning alms procession.

From the UNESCO website:

“Luang Prabang is an outstanding example of the fusion of traditional architecture and Lao urban structures with those built by the European colonial authorities in the 19th and 20th centuries. Its unique, remarkably well-preserved townscape illustrates a key stage in the blending of these two distinct cultural traditions.”
