We found Luang Prabang in Laos exhilarating, like discovering Shangri-La after our long travels through the mountains. Our hotel, the Maison Souvannaphoum, used to be the Princes’ Palace. With the location and gardens and attentive service it had me wondering how long the superannuation would last if I lived here. Shades of “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel “. However the call of family and friends, bush dancing and good medical services is too strong, so it’s onwards ever onwards.
