Luang Prabang

 
 

Luang Prabang is the ancient capital of Laos and royal residence of the kings. An eventful and sometimes turbulent history has shaped the richness of Luang Prabang that can be found in temples and monuments hidden in its lush settings. It's the rich heritage that earned Luang Prabang reputation of a World Heritage Site recognized by UNESCO.

Contrast to its enormous significance and appeal, Luang Prabang is a small town and you can wrap all must see sites in just one day.

The Luang Prabang city tour will introduce you to well-known temples recognized by UNESCO: the oldest temple Wat Visoun, the Monastery of the opened heart Wat Aham, the magnificent Wat Xieng Thong and so on.

You also climb 328 steps of Mount Phousi to admire the panoramic view of the valley and leisurely stroll around the aisles of local ethnic markets.
