Wat Laos

Laos / Luang Prabang / Food & Travel
49 images

I was recently asked to say a few words about my time in Laos for a magazine bio. For me Luang Prabang is such a rewarding place for travellers because of the Mekong, the Monks and the food. I love that the morning market is still full of banana leaves and bamboo instead of plastic. I love that 100m from the most important temple in Luang Prabang there's a french patisserie serving kouign-amanns and cheesy croissants. I love that you can eat Nem Khao (rice crepes filled with pork and onion served with fish sauce and crushed peanuts) on the back streets of Luang Prabang for just $2 and it will be the best meal of the day. I love that there are no loud drunken Aussies ruining the joint like they do most elsewhere in South-East Asia that has a beach or a bar :)

Behind The Scenes

This set of images was shot using the Lumix G85, a modest sized camera that uses the Micro Four-Thirds format lenses. My choice of lenses are the 12mm f/1.4 and the 25mm f/1.4, giving me access to some shallow depth of field shooting and the luxury of packing a very small kit for the road.
