The fine arts of Laos have been developed over centuries and reflect the values and traditions of this gentle but lively culture. The curved and straight lines and soft and hard contours blend harmoniously in the patterns that feature in Lao art. The skills of Lao artists from the past to the present may be seen in the delicate use of these patterns within the architectural features in the town of Luang Prabang. The warm, courteous nature of Laotian people is reflected in the soft, gentle curves of the motifs, thus providing a restful and pleasing visual experience. Drive back to the hotel.
