Luang Prabang A Sparks of Culture

Behind the curtains of any Nation an integration of Art and Culture, Religion, Music, Drama and Dance. The combination of Art Culture, religion, Music, Drama and Dance fill the gap between imagination and reality. Uniqueness of any Culture is the gesture of any Country in the World.




Culture and Art of any Country is the maze where you did not know in its uniqueness where is the door. Move yourself in the Bumpy Roads from the ancient time to present.
