Overview

If you have only a couple of days and want to visit Laos, then Luang Prabang is the place you want to visit. Set between the Nam Khan and Mekong rivers, Luang Prabang is an enchanting town filled with historic temples and colonial style buildings. The entire town was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995. Visit the religious and historic monuments, explore the Kuang Si waterfalls, walk through the ethnic villages and at leisure, stroll down the picturesque town.

Day 02~Sightseeing of Luang Prabang

The first stop of the day will be at Wat Visoun (Wat Wisunalat), the oldest living temple in Luang Prabang, dating back to 1513. The temple preserves a collection of antique wooden Buddhas. Visit the nearby Wat Aham and then continue to Wat Xieng Thong, the crowning jewel of all the monasteries and temples in the city. Its many ornate buildings feature exquisite mosaic and gold-stenciled murals. From there, stroll down the main street of Luang Prabang, stopping at some of the many temples that line its sides, including Wat Sibounheuang, Wat Si Moungkhoun, Wat Sop and Wat Sene.

Continue to the former Royal Palace, now a National Museum, a modest but graceful building which combines traditional Lao and French beaux-arts motifs. This turn-of-the century royal residence has been preserved as it was when the royal family last lived here and provides unique insights into the history of Laos. Then, visit Hor Phrabang. In the right front corner room of the Palace which opens to the outside, is a collection of the palace's most prized art, including the Phrabang, cast of a gold, silver and bronze alloy. This Buddha stands at 83 cm tall and weighs around 50 kg.

Afterwards, visit Wat Mai- the largest and the most richly decorated of the temples in Luang Prabang.

Now, we climb 328 steps of Mount Phousi and enjoy beautiful sunset view from the top. The hill is 150 m high and sits in the middle of the town, offering beautiful views over the temples and river.

Overnight at hotel.
