Utopia

Top choice bar in Luang Prabang

Lush riverside bar with peaceful views of the Nam Khan, recliner cushions, low-slung tables and leafy nooks. Chill over a fruit shake, burger or breakfast (mains 30,000K to 60,000K), play a board game or volleyball, or just lose yourself in a sea of candles come sunset. Brilliantly designed with faux Khmer ruins and creeper vines, this is surely the city's liveliest outdoor bar.

Luang Prabang Yoga runs regular classes here; check the website for the schedule.
