Package Itinerary

08:30 Today’s tour through the historical and UNESCO world heritage city of Luang Prabang will give you insight into the culture and rich history of the magical city. Luang Prabang has a fascinating history with a delightful mix of Buddhist temples and French Colonial buildings.

Our first stop is Wat Visoun: a replica of an older Temple, which was erected in the same place back in 1513. Wat Visoun houses numerous religious art treasures. Next we head to Wat Xieng Thong a royal Wat built on the banks of the Mekong River in 1559. Wat Xieng Thong has remained relatively undamaged by the various mainly Chinese invasions over the centuries. The temple is decorated extensively with impressive carving, murals and mosaics.

Visit the Laotian Royal Palace officially known as Haw Kham. The palace was built during the French colonial era for the King and his family. The site was chosen so that official visitors to Luang Prabang could disembark from their river voyages directly at the palace and be received there. In 1975, the monarchy was overthrown and the Palace was converted into a National museum. Today it houses many artefacts, which showcase the richness of Laotian culture. Then continue to enjoy the atmosphere at Wat Mai, built in 1796 and sits at the foot of Mount Phousi.

Board a cruise for an amazing long tail boat journey. Cruise along the Mekong River past beautiful Laotian countryside and local villages to where the Mekong meets the Nam-Ou River. Stop at the fascinating Pak Ou caves, which is in fact a cave system of two interlinked caves, crammed full of Buddha statues left behind by pilgrims over generations. Cross over the river to Ban Pak Ou and visit Tad Sae waterfall. This stunning waterfall cascades over the forest with cool natural swimming pools.

In the evening explore the Street Night Bazaar, where you can find the lovely collection and handmade textiles by local and hill tribe people surrounding Luang Prabang. Return to your hotel at 18:30.
