Palais Royal, Luang Prabang, Laos



Apirak wrote again! Boy you are spoiling me! He tells me that when Thai People want to get crazy on their springbreak – they go to Laos! I was not aware of that fact ^^ Nice somehow. German people go to Mallorca btw.

The Royal Palace in Luang Prabang, Laos, was built in 1904 during the French colonial era for King Sisavang Vong and his family. The site for the palace was chosen so that official visitors to Luang Prabang could disembark from their river voyages directly below the palace and be received there. After the death of King Sisavang Vong, the Crown Prince Savang Vatthana and his family were the last to occupy the grounds. In 1975, the monarchy was overthrown by the communists and the Royal Family were taken to re-education camps. The palace was then converted into a national museum.

Did you know?

The Khone Papeng waterfall situated in Laos is the largest waterfall in whole of Southeast Asia.

I send love!
