Package Itinerary

Luang Prabang is a fascinating historical city with a delightful mix of Buddhist temples and French Colonial buildings. In fact, it is still very much a rural kind of city in comparison to neighboring countries. Our first stop is Wat Visoun: which is a replica of an older Temple which was erected in the same place back in 1513, this Wat houses numerous religious art treasures. Next, we head to Wat Xieng Thong a royal Wat built on the banks of the Mekong river built-in 1559 which has remained relatively undamaged by the various invasions mainly Chinese over the centuries. This temple is decorated extensively with impressive carving, murals, and mosaics.

And visit the Laotian Royal Palace officially known as Haw Kham which 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 by the palace and be received there. In 1975, the monarchy was overthrown and the Palace was then converted into a National museum. Today it houses many artifacts that showcase the richness of Laotian culture. We’ll continue on to enjoy the atmosphere at Wat Mai built in 1796 and sits at the foot of Mount Phousi.

After lunch, we continue to the pier for our boat trip to visit Ban Chan a local village just outside Luang Prabang famous for traditional pottery-making watch the process of pots being made on traditional. Return to Luang Prabang time permitting climb Phousi Hill, with its 328 steps, it’s a rewarding walk as once at the summit you’ll have a fabulous panorama view over the town center and the mighty Mekong River and beyond.
