The 7 Most Instagrammable Spots In Luang Prabang

When it comes to ‘gram-worthy places, there’s endless Instagrammable Spots across the globe, but which ones are the best Luang Prabang Instagram shots?

Visiting Luang Prabang?

These are the top seven spots you can’t afford to leave off your feed.

1. Local Laos snacks

Some of our favourite snacks include Mung bean cake, noodle rolls, Khao piak sen, and grilled beehive. Everything’s about 5,000 kip, which is a little over 50 cents USD.

2. Phou Si Mountain

Check out the sunrise at Phou Si Mountain. The mountain is smack-dab in the center of the city — with a climb to the top of no more than 15 minutes. Once up there, you have to pay 10,000 kip at the temple, but it’s a teensy price for the glowing view.

3. Luang Prabang morning market

The Luang Prabang morning market should be in full-swing post-sunrise, located just off of Sisavangvong Road, in the roads surrounding the temple of Wat Mai. A perfect spot for some Luang Prabang Instagram food shots.

4. Kuang Si Falls

Head about a half-hour away from the city for a hike at Kuang Si — a glittering, sea-foam green multi-levelled waterfall. After hiking to the top, find a little blissful pond, with a tree swing hanging over the top. It’s like a hike up to heaven

5. Ban Xang Hai 

This whiskey village is just 30-minutes drive from Luang Prabang and is also a popular stop off for boats en route to Pak Ou Caves. The village is known for its strong, fermented rice wine and whiskey – which often has snakes, centipedes and cockroaches added to for flavour!

6. Luang Prabang night market

Every single evening, Sisavangvong Road jumps into night market-mode, closing itself off to cars, and setting up little stalls of jewelry, bags, and higher-quality souvenirs than you’d normally get in Thailand or Vietnam.

7. Utopia Bar

You’re probably going to end up with a BeerLao in your hand. Why not drink it at the most iconic Luang Prabang bar of all — Utopia — which is tucked through back alleyways, and rests along the edge of the river.
