Luang Prabang (Bicycles and Baguettes)

After crossing the Mekong river it was like I fell into a different country. The change in architecture was astonishing. 

The town of Luang Prabang was settled by the French colonies back in the day. The town itself consists of tiny alleyways lined with French Colonial houses (most of which are now a tourist guesthouse). 

My view while having a mid morning coffee.

Nestled in the mountains of Northern Lao this town is a Unesco World Heritage site and is a great place to chill. The town itself also has numerous buddhist temples to visit if that is your thing. 

Even my room had that old world charm to it.

I traded Fred in for the day for a different set of wheels. This is by far the best way to get around town.

And of course where there is French you find great bread.

Views from the night market

Cozy cottage.

It really amazes me sometimes how you can see the dominance of a foreign country.
