We were so excited to have some family come visit us for a couple of weeks this summer! Aside from lots of relaxed time (and late nights!) catching up at home, it gave us the chance to see Luang Prabang as tourists again. Ryan was able to take a few days off work, and we also made the most of the two weekends during their visit.The temps were HOT! So, we went swimming a couple of times, and tried to cool off in the AC between outings. In the middle of Luang Prabang is Mt Phousi. One evening we decided to make the climb at dusk to show them the view from the top of the town. It’s a LOT of stairs, but the kids love it and race on up ahead.We were all dripping with sweat by the time we reached the top (along with everyone else!) but the views were worth it. Our kids were part of the attraction for a crowd of Asian tourists, but they didn’t seem to mind. We had fun people watching, as well as enjoying a beautiful sunset over the river before heading back down. It’s also fun and much cozier during the winter!
What mountains have you climbed? Have you ever become the tourist attraction at a tourist attraction?
