Luang Prabang described by a french explorer in 19th century:

"Conquered and charmed, an impression remains with me: dry fishermen's nets strung up along scaffolding; boats pulled half out of the water onto the strand; rafts crossing noisily over the Nam Khan's rapids into the Mekong; white and gold pagodas roofed with coloured varnished tiles; tall houses built in wood and huts constructed with palm leaves, their roofs covered with thin strips of bamboo; lightly dressed men and women climbing up and down the muddy and steeply rising banks between small gardens and providing an appropriate splash of colour; as a final note, and not too far distant, high mountains, dark green in colour, with tufts of cloud rising from the Nam Khan and dispersing about them"

Thank you for sharing.  This is the true beauty of Laos: its simplicity, innocence, and charm.  This is the beauty and richness of her land.  I can only hope and pray that whatever development should take place will adhere to her beauty and charm.  I know changes are coming.  Soon she will be littered with glass buildings, over population, excessive development that will forever skew her beauty.
