A Portrait of Pom - our guide in Luang Prabang, Laos
Luang Prabang may no longer be the Royal Capital but it is still considered the main centre of Buddhism in Laos. I was delighted when we met our guide, Khampom or Pom, to discover that he had been a Buddhist monk for fourteen years. Who better to show us around the city?
Some Captivating Charms of Luang Prabang in Laos
Santi Resort and Spa in its lovely garden setting on the outskirts of Luang Prabang in Laos was a pleasant change from recent stays in city centre hotels. The hotel runs a free shuttle service into the town so I did not feel isolated from the town.
