Tour Itinerary

  1. Day 1: Luang Prabang Arrival

    Upon arrival at the airport, our local guide will welcome you and transfer you to hotel in town for check in. Meals on your own. Overnight at the hotel.

  2. Day 2:Luang Prabang sightseeing – Pak Ou cave (B)

    After breakfast we will start this city sightseeing tour around Luang Prabang town. We visit the vegetable market and the former King’s Palace in the UNESCO World Heritage town of Luang Prabang learning about today’s life and history. Luang Prabang is maybe the best-preserved traditional city in Southeast Asia. The tranquility and charm of this town with its splendid natural scenery and cultural sights, like the WatXieng Thong, make it one of the most delightful places to visit in Laos.

    Take a morning cruise along the Mekong about two hours upstream from the centre of LuangPrabang, and discover the numerous Buddha images at Pak Ou Caves.
    Pak Ou (mouth of the Ouriver) the Tham Ting (lower cave) and the ThamTheung (upper cave) are caves overlooking the founder name Mekong River. They are a group of caves on the right side of the Mekong river, It is then only a short distance from the caves to the village of Ban XangHai. Stop here to learn about LauLao (Lao whisky) and LauHai (Lao wine), before continuing down the Mekong to Luang Prabang. On return, we’ll visit the impressive stupa of WatVisoun and the shrine of WatAham.

    Later today, ready for sunset, climb up to the top of Phu Si Mountain for an enjoyable exploration of the sacred, gilded stupa. From this awe-inspiring vista, take in the beautiful sunset view of the city and the Mekong River.
