Listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site, this city located on the banks of the Nam Khan and Mekong Rivers in north central Laos is popular among travelers due to its well maintained old religious, cultural and colonial structures.
One of the most visited site in Laos is the majestic Kuang Si Waterfalls about 30 kilometers from the city center.
Other places to visit include Mount Phou Si, Tad Sae Waterfalls and Pak Ou Caves.
