Sites include a sample of Luang Prabang’s oldest and most beautiful temples, traditional craft homes, music centers, spirit house craftsmen, funeral pyres, and the UXO Museum for a sobering look at the devastation of the Indochina war in Laos and the many undetonated bombs that still litter the countryside.
