We went to Luang Prabang, Laos, last week as our late summer holiday.
Luang Prabang is the ancient capital located in the northern part of the Lao People’s Democratic Republic. The town is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
September is the rainy season in Laos, but we actually had a relaxing and pleasant stay without the crowds. Only a short stay, but we still had a memorable experience, including a cycle to paper & weaving village and participating in a workshop to create our own Dream Catcher at the Heuanchan Heritage House.
Delicious Lao Food, nice and calm people, beautiful old townscape…
I strongly recommend Luang Prabang for those who are looking for a relaxing holiday.
According to government statistics (as of December 2018), 3,013 Lao people live in Japan with nearly half of them (1,470 people) as Permanent Residents.
Lao people told me they found Japanese tourists to be polite and respectful. Japan is also welcoming more and more foreign people here as immigrants and workers by creating the new visa system. If you have any questions and need a Kyoto immigration lawyer, don't hesitate to contact us.
