Boats on Mekong River during sunset

Location: Mekong River, Luang Prabang, Laos (19°53′N 102°08′E)
Date: 2 November 2004; 5.50pm
Camera: Canon 300D with kit lens

Luang Prabang, the capital of an old Laotian kingdom of the same name lies beside a stretch of the Mekong River. It is a popular tourist destination, if not the most popular destination in Laos. Most people come to marvel at the various temples (wat) and the palace, and basically just take it easy. Well, I find that holidaying in Laos is just that- take it easy. In fact too relax for my taste, as I abhor sitting and do nothing but drink coffee and read a book for my travel. Fortunately there are pretty sunsets over the Mekong River to keep me sufficiently interested for a couple of days.
