Luang Prabang - Arrival
  • Meet upon arrival at Luang Prabang, your guide will greet you and transfer you to your hotel for check-in.
  • As the day comes to an end learn more about Laos culture and locally made products at the Stay Another Day Exhibit. You will also enjoy a Lao tea tasting ceremony.
  • Climb the stairs of Mount Phousi and watch the sunset over the city and surrounding hills.
  • Transfer back to your hotel, stopping along the way at the hill tribe evening market for some shopping.
  • Overnight in Luang Prabang.


Pak Ou Caves / Luang Prabang (B)
  • Breakfast at the hotel.
  • Travel by boat for 2 hours upstream on the Mekong River to Pak Ou Caves. Locally called Tam Ting, the Pak Ou contains thousands of gold lacquered Buddha statues crammed into two caves carved out of a towering limestone cliff. The statues range in size from a few centimetres tall to the size of a human, and the view from the mouth of the cave provides sweeping views of the Mekong and Nam Ou rivers. The caves are also a destination for local pilgrimages, especially during the Lao New Year period of Pii Mai.
  • Return to Luang Prabang.
  • During the afternoon, take a guided tour of Luang Prabang, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Start at the National Museum, which was once the Royal Palace, to learn about the rich history of Laos.
  • Continue on foot to Wat Mai, a temple renowned for its golden bas-relief, and Wat Sensoukarahm, which features a beautiful dazzling golden facade.
  • Visit Wat Xieng Thong, the most revered temple in Luang Prabang. Located at the end of the peninsula, close to the Mekong, this temple was built in 1560 by King Setthathirat and is decorated with ornate carvings and mosaics.


Luang Prabang / Kuangsi (B)
  • For early risers, there is a very special dawn visit to watch the monks collecting alms. As the sun begins to rise, long lines of orange-robed monks leave their pagodas and walk barefoot down the streets collecting offerings from Luang Prabang residents. It is a beautiful, serene ceremony that highlights the spiritualism of the Laos people.
  • Return to the hotel for breakfast.
  • Following breakfast, continue your tour of enchanting Luang Prabang. Visit Wat Visoun, the holiest temple of the city, which was entirely rebuilt in 1887 after being destroyed by the invading Black Flags from Southern China. In the courtyard of Wat Visoun stands the Watermelon Stupa shaped like the fruit from which it takes its name.
  • Continue past Wat Aham, which was first built in the 1500's and onto Wat That where the ashes of King Sisavang Vong are kept inside the large central stupa.
  • In the afternoon, visit the refreshing waters of the Kuangsi Waterfalls, located at 32km from Luang Prabang. These waterfalls cascade down a multilevel limestone formation creating a series of turquoise blue pools, perfect for swimming on a hot day. The jungle and dense woods surrounding the falls are filled with wildlife and pleasant walks can be taken along the natural footpaths. (Note: when bathing, please wear a sarong, no bare bodies).
  • Overnight in Luang Prabang.


Luang Prabang - Departure (B)
  • Breakfast at the hotel.
  • Depending on your flight schedule, there may be time to visit the Heritage Information Centre. Here you will learn about the methods being used to preserve the unique heritage and culture of Luang Prabang, as well as gain further understanding of the importance of developing sustainable and community-based preservation projects.
  • After your visit, your private car and driver will transfer you to the airport for your departure flight.
