The centre of the city is situated on a peninsula between the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers in the mountainous region of Northern Laos. Here you can find ancient Buddhist temples, incredible natural landscapes and some of the most beautiful cultural processions each morning with saffron-robed monks during Alms Giving.
