Luang Prabang - Arrival (L, D)
  • Meet upon arrival at Luang Prabang Airport, transfer and check-in at Hotel.
  • Visit Vat Xieng Thong, considered to be the most beautiful temple.
    The sim of the vat represents the classic Luang Prabang temple architecture with roofs that sweep low to the ground. In the compound stand several small chapels, housing bronze Buddha images, which were displayed in Paris in 1911. Near the East gate stands the Royal Funeral Chapel. Inside are an impressive 12-metre high funeral chariot and various urns of each Royal Family's member. The gilt panel on the exterior of the chapel depicts a semi-erotic episode from Ramayana.
  • Lunch at Un Petit Nid Restaurant.
  • Visit Vat Visoun, the site of an impressive stupa 'That Makmo', stylistically more Srilankalese than Lao. Then walk to the nearby Vat Aham, which is one of the city's major tutelary shrines, dedicated to Deveta Luang (spirit) Pu Gneu Ya Gneu (ancestors).
  • Climb Vat Phousi Hill for an outstanding view over the city.
    Continue to visit Vat Mai, built in 1796, famous for the five-tiered roof of its wooden sim built in the standard of Luang Prabang style.
