Luang Prabang?

Jump to last reply

Hello,

We are heading to Asia in July and have a bunch of places on the hit list. A few flights and accommodations are already booked, but we are leaving it a little open-ended for where the spirit moves us within a set number of places.

Luang Prabang was suggested as a place to hit, but it's one of the pricier options with flights in and out being comparable to regular travel outside of Asia. What I'm wondering is whether Luang Prabang is worth the visit over other places? Our itinerary currently sits as:

Phonm Penh (fly in)
Siem Reap
Luang Prabang
Chiang Mai
Bangkok
Phuket/Phi Phi Island
Kuala Lumpur
Penang
Singapore

I am actually also wondering if Singapore is the best option as we have a forced overnight there for our very first flight. In reality trying to decide if there is another place in Thailand or Malaysia we should be considering, or if Luang Prabang is indeed worth the extra cost and effort?

Thanks!
