OVERNIGHT: Luang Prabang MEALS: No

On arrival at Luang Prabang  Airport, you are greeted by our guide and transferred to your hotel.  You have some time free to relax and catch your first glimpse of Luang Prabang. This ancient town was strikingly built on a peninsula formed by the Mekong and Nam Khan Rivers. The human life 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. You can wander through the old quarter where are many striking houses adjoining along narrow lanes and friendly people around. The main street is a paradise, giving way to the night market, a famous place to sample local foods and buy some souvernirs at bargaining. This fascinating old quarter captivates travellers in all senses and offers an endless exploration.
