Luang Prabang is one of my favorite little towns in Southeast Asia. Between its awesome waterfalls (one of the best in SEA in my opinion), fantastic cheap street food, and quirky cafes this little town is a must visit for travelers cruising Laos. I remember so vividly waking up early to witness the monks walk through the city, collecting their alms in their orange-colored robes all while the sun was gently rising above the town. So whether you are heading to Luang Prabang to relax in its awesome chilled out vibe or there to sightsee, here’s a list of our personal recommendations on the Best Places to Stay in Luang Prabang for Hotels & Hostels.
