Luang Prabang

Tingmelvin - 24-Oct-23

Luang Prabang was my second stop in a trip that was bookended by Chiang Mai (currently on the T List) and Angkor (one of the most widely regarded WHS sites in the world), and even though it is smaller than the other two, I believe it deservedly belongs to the WHS List. Although some reviews liken the Lanna-style temples in Chiang Mai architecturally similar to those in Luang Prabang, I think there are subtle differences that differentiate the two. Nonetheless I don't think the temples are the main draw for Luang Prabang, unlike that in Chiang Mai, although you can very well cover most of it along Sisavangvong Road in half a day

Modernist Kaunas

Tingmelvin - 18-Oct-23

From the current scores it is clear that Kaunas isn't viewed very highly here, but having been to most of the European countries, Kaunas's OUV clearly shines. It is the only city I have been to where modernist architecture plays a very central role, definitely a result of the christening of Kaunas as the interwar capital of Lithuania whilst Vilnius remained in Polish hands and the ensuing construction, and gave a markedly different vibe to every other European city I have visited. In fact, I don't think there is another European city-architectural inscription regarding the interwar period, but I'm happy to be corrected.
