When in Lao…

When you find yourself on the road less traveled in countries such as the Democratic People’s Republic of Lao, be sure to stop by the beautiful city of Luang Prabang. Think frangipanis, monks, rich tapestry, buffalo meat and the great Mekong River.

We had the pleasure of stopping by a magical place called Utopia Bar in Luang Prabang in spring this year. It certainly lived up to its motto, “zen by day, groovy by night.” Probably one of Asia’s most unique bars, the bar overlooks the Nam Khan river. You can relax on the pillow and tapestry laden bamboo floors overlooking the river, do yoga, drink Beer Lao, play board games and read a book, to name a few. At night, you can enjoy a candlelit dinner and listen to live music.

We guarantee that you would want to come back again to Luang Prabang in no time.
