Summary This paper examines the interpretation of the World Heritage city Luang Prabang (the former royal capital of Laos), investigating the relationships between the goals and strategies of international organizations such as UNESCO and the priorities of the Lao state. Refuting the idea that the World Heritage system represents a form of cultural globalization, the authors instead suggest that there is a marked convergence of the interests of international heritage bodies managing World Heritage and the Lao authorities anxious to portray a particular vision of national identity through selective recognition of cultural heritage locations.
