Angsana Maison Souvannaphoum
Also in Luang Prabang, this was once the residence of former prime minister Prince Souvannaphouma. There’s definitely a regal splendour to the place, and the rooms all have a stately air. The restaurant, Elephant Blanc, is one of the best in the region and the Angsana Spa is a seductive place to unwind after sightseeing.
A UNESCO World Heritage site with good reason, this town in the northern mountains is a spectacular mix of ancient temples and colonial splendour. The looming hills in the background and jungle that creeps down provide an atmospheric backdrop for you to explore the town’s incredible history.
