Luang Prabang, Laos
Meditative spirituality coexists with city life at Wat Prabang, a sacred temple on the grounds of Laos' Royal Palace. Step inside and discover a golden Buddha rumored to have blessed the people of Laos with its unwavering gaze since the first century. Sit quietly as the crimson-cloaked monks go about their pious duties. Discover that, although you're just a few steps away from the outside world, this blessed space truly feels miles away from it all.
