Tour Itinerary

Day 1

Arrival – Luang Prabang

Greeted  at airport by our guide and driven to hotel. Check in hotel and visit some sights of Luang prabang, including Wat Visoun  and Phousi Hill.

OVERNIGHT: Luang Prabang MEALS: No

On arrival at Luang Prabang  Airport, you are greeted by our guide and transferred to your hotel. The ancient town of Luang Prabang is strikingly built on a peninsula formed by the Mekong and Nam Khan Rivers. The  human life in place  has been recognized in place for over thousand years; however, Luang Prabang began a prosperous time, once being the royal capital of the Lane Xang Kingdom. The old-time appearance of Luang Prabang  has been changed since the protectorate  of the French, whose influence led to the construction of many colonial villas. This remarkably preserved town with saffron-clad monks, exquisite cuisine, gleaming temples, vibrant cultural traditions, distinctive artwork, relaxed atmosphere, traditional wooden houses and colonial style structures, makes it an unforgettably beautiful destination. We start  exploring Luang Prabang Town with the oldest temple of  Wat Visoun. This sacred monument was all  but mainly destroyed by invaders from southern China. However, it is still interesting to have a look at the replica built over the original temple ground. We embark on a walk uphill, following the zigzag path of 318 steps on Phousi Hill , which is topped by a glittering golden stupa.  This rising shrine dominates Luang Prbanag skyline and  lends  a panoramic view from the town old quarter  to the Mekong and Nam Kha Rivers, and undulating mountains in the far distance.
