Luang Prabang

Luang Prabang's Mystical Aura
From the moment the plane touched down until this very second, I've been so enthralled, so entranced by Luang Prabang that I find it difficult to come up with the words to describe it. Obviously, the natural scenery is stunning, but there's something else....

There is an aura in the air - a peaceful, positive and healing energy. It's evident in the kind locals that barely speak above a whisper, the pitter-patter of the Buddhist monks' soft foot steps, the rhythmic sound of the mighty Mekong that is always a mere few steps away, and the strict adherence to centuries old tradition and decorum.

Luang Prabang is somewhere to take a deep breath, relax, and learn the ways of a people that are widely known to be one of the happiest on Earth. I think I'm beginning to see why...
