I really felt at home with the palms and flowering trees in Luang Prabang, they reminded me a lot of Queensland, especially the red flame trees and frangipani trees that I love so much.

We went on the river by boat and saw Luang Prabang from the water. It was quiet and gentle. We saw people fishing and washing their clothes on the riverbank.

Reaching Luang Prabang was an adventure involving several mini buses and a border crossing from Thailand, including a fairly scary drive on bad roads through mountains during a tropical thunderstorm. We arrived late afternoon and shared a moto-taxi into town with other travellers. The light was so golden and dusty as we sped through the streets in the open air. I loved Luang Prabang immediately with it’s big old french colonial houses, brown flowing river and surrounding lush green hills. .
