Package Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival Luang Prabang – Hotel

Luang Prabang is perhaps the best-preserved traditional city in Southeast Asia. The tranquillity and charm of this UNESCO world heritage town with its splendid natural scenery and cultural sights make it one of the most delightful places to visit in Laos.

On arrival at the airport are welcomed and transferred to the hotel, after checking into the hotel we continue time permitting to climb the 328 steps to the top of Mount Phousi to take in the beautiful sunset over this town and the Mekong River

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. For late arrivals, this can be done on the following day
Accommodation: Sada Hotel (Deluxe Room)

Day 2: Pak Ou Cave – Kuangsi Waterfall

This morning you may want to wake up early and participate in the daily early morning ritual of saffron-clad monks with their black Alms-giving bowls being given offerings from the local people, including the ubiquitous sticky rice

After breakfast in the early morning we’ll take you on an amazingly long-tail boat journey along the Nam-Ou & Mekong Rivers, through the beautiful Laotian countryside all the way to Luang Prabang, passing by the local villages and seeing the real everyday life of the villagers going about their chores including fishing, trading & washing along the rivers on our 5-hour journey.

We’ll stop on the way to see the fascinating Pak Ou Caves, which in fact are a cave system of two interlinked caves, crammed full of Buddha statues left behind by pilgrims over generations, and then we’ll observe the traditional process of rice wine distillation in Ban Sanghai, before returning to Luang Prabang

After lunch we continue to Khuang Si Waterfall and Bear Rescue Center, about 30mins from Luang Prabang, the waterfall is set in a natural jungle setting and you will have plenty of time to relax or swim in its turquoise cool pools. Return to Luang Prabang and free at your leisure

Accommodation: Sada Hotel (Deluxe Room)

Day 3: Luang Prabang – City Tour – Departure

After breakfast visit the morning Phou Si Market where you will see such diverse offerings as dried buffalo skin, local tea, and saltpetre among the chickens, vegetables, and hill-tribe weavings

Aftermarket 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 carvings, 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 artifacts, 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. Return to the hotel check and transfer to the airport for your award flight ticket
