Visit a bustling morning market before returning to your hotel for breakfast. Take a guided audio tour of the Royal Palace Museum, housing precious possessions of the former Lao Royal family. Explore various architectural feats, including 19th century Wat Xiengthong Temple, and Wat Visoun, nicknamed the watermelon stupa. Gain insight into the ethnic culture at the Arts and Ethnology Center, and head to the textile villages of Ban Xangkhong and Ban Xienglek. Venture to the monk school of Wat Siphouthabath to interact with a young monk and ascend 328 steps up Mount Phousi to watch the sunset over the Mekong. Kindly note that the Royal Palace is closed on Tuesdays.

Day Trip to Kuang Si Waterfalls & Pak Ou Caves
Discover beautiful landscapes! After your breakfast, enjoy a relaxing upstream cruise on a private boat past tranquil countryside vistas and moored wooden canoes on the Mekong. Disembark at the Ban Muang Keo village and take a short trek to the mysterious Pak Ou Caves, which house thousands of Buddha figurines in varying sizes! On your way back to Luang Prabang for lunch, stop to explore the artisans colony at Ban Nongxai. Drive out to the beautiful Kuang Si Waterfalls in the afternoon, where a refreshing dip in the turquoise waters do much to revive you. A visit to the Bear Rescue Centre to see the rehabilitated rare Asiatic Black Bears, can be a rewarding experience before you return to your hotel in the evening.

Aquatic adventures await! After a hearty breakfast, step aboard a private boat for your full day tour of the 4,000 islands in Si Phan Don. At the picturesque island of Don Khone, you can take a bicycle ride through the French colonial-style remains, past abandoned railway tracks to the furious Liphi Waterfalls which is also called the Corridor of the Devil. The return journey will take you to the spectacular Khone Phapheng Falls which stretches for an impressive 10 km. Don’t’ miss your chance to see the rare Irrawaddy dolphins from a boat which takes you to the deep pools near the Cambodian border. In the late afternoon, a car will take you back to Khong Island.

Half Day Tour of Wat Phou
See the pre-Angkorian Wat Phou temple, built between 5th-13th century. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Wat Phou is part of the greater Khmer Empire, linked via ancient highways to Angkor Wat in Cambodia. The lower part of this ancient Khmer religious complex has two ruined palace buildings at the edge of a pond, the upper section is the temple sanctuary itself. Climb the crumbling stairway adorned with ‘nagas’ or snake heads. This dramatically located temple is one of the foremost highlights of any trip to Laos.
