Another great location close to Luang Prabang at Kuang Si is the upper waterfall. Take a taxi to get there and make sure to be there in the early morning when Kuang Si opens, otherwise it will be very crowded. When you walk uphill don’t stop at the amazing tree location, but move on.
The Haw Pha Bang temple in Luang Prabang is amazing when the sun hits the golden plates and beautiful colours starts to burn. You will find many nice photo locations inside the area of the Royal Palace around the temple. But our favourite photo location was on the opposite street where the way up to Mount Phousi starts.

We discovered this hidden gem by accident. Unlike many of the temples that are among the main attractions in Kyoto, you can move around freely in the Ninna-ji temple complex. No barriers or signs prevent you from entering the rooms or other parts of the building. Therefore, the visit to this temple became something very special to us. Strolling through the rooms, discovering every corner or just sitting on the terrace gives you a taste of how it must have been to live in one of these houses. While the visitor crowds squeeze through the nearby Ryoan-ji, you can relax here and enjoy the garden – all at your own pace.
The Handara Iconic Gate is a very popular Instagram location. You have to come very early in the morning to take some shots, otherwise you will need some time and nerves as this location gets so crowded, that you need to wait 1 hour to get a possibility for a picture without people. Before entering the gate, you will need to pay a fee of IDR 30,000 per person, when you are not staying at the resort.
