The first stop of your Laos holiday, Vientiane still feels like a sleepy city with relaxed charm, tree-lined boulevards, interesting wats, and colorful markets. Tour the different highlights of the city, including Pha That Luang, a gleaming golden stupa that is perhaps the most important national monument in Laos; Ho Pha Keo, the formal royal temple, now a museum with beautiful examples of Buddhist sculpture; Wat Si Saket; and Patuxai, a monumental arch inspired by the Arc de Triomphe, but executed with Lao motifs.

Overnight in Vientiane.

Excursion to Buddha Park: This day’s excursion is to visit an open-air museum, Wat Xieng Khuan (Buddha Park). This is a collection of whimsical but compelling statues of Buddhist and Hindu gods.

Afternoon at leisure.

Overnight in Vientiane.

Transfer flight from Vientiane to Luang Prabang.

Sightseeing in Luang Prabang.

Set between the Nam Khan and Nam Ou 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.

Begin your tour with Wat Visoun (Wat Wisunalat). The oldest living temple in Luang Prabang, Wat Visoun dates back to 1513 and contains a collection of antique wooden Buddhas.

Visit the nearby Wat Aham before continuing 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 (Wat Street) of Luang Prabang.

Time permitting, stop at some of the many temples that line its sides, including Wat Sibounheuang, Wat Si Moungkhoun, Wat Sop, and Wat Sene.

Visit Mount Phousi for sunset. Climb the hillside stairs to the small temples atop Phou Si, the 100m high hill that sits in the middle of the town, offering beautiful views over the temples and river.

Overnight in Luang Prabang.

Visit a local market.

Visit the National Museum (former Royal Palace, closed on Tuesdays), a modest but graceful building that 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.

Excursion by boat to Pak Ou Caves
Travel down the Mekong River to the steep limestone cliffs overlooking the Mekong and Nam Ou rivers, home to the Pak Ou Caves. These extraordinary caves are filled with Buddha images, of every style and material imaginable.

On the return journey, stop at Ban Xang Hai, a local village famous for the production of lao lao, the local rice wine whisky.

Visit the weaving village of Ban Xang Khong, a village near Luang Prabang well known for its traditional handwoven cotton and silk, as well as production of the local sa (mulberry) paper.

Overnight in Luang Prabang.

On the last day of your Laos travel, transfer to the airport for the departure flight to your onward destination. We thank you so much for your traveling with us. We wish you all the best and hope to arrange your next Laos tour. Goodbye and see you again!
