    ITINERARY

     

     

    DAY 1: ARRIVE LUANG PRABANG


    On arrival at the airport, your guide and private car will meet you and transfer you to the heart of the spiritual capital of Laos. After a short rest, we begin cycling to visit the impressive stupa of Wat Visoun, the holiest temple of the city, which was entirely rebuilt in 1887 after being destroyed by the invading Black Flags from Southern China. In the courtyard of Wat Visoun stands the Watermelon Stupa shaped like the fruit from which it takes its name. Then visit the shrine of Wat Aham and the city's oldest temple of Wat Sene.

    Continue to the magnificent Wat Xieng Thong where you can see the impressive “tree of life” mosaic pattern set in coloured glass. Its exterior architecture is remarkable with its roofs sweeping low to the ground, representing classical Laotian architecture.

    Next climb the 328 steps that lead to the top of Mount Phousi where you will be rewarded with marvelous views of the Mekong and Nam Khan Rivers, the neighboring mountain ranges, and the city buildings. The sunset views are particularly spectacular as the sun casts glorious colors over the peaceful scenery below.  Descend the steps on the opposite side of the hill and stroll to the nearby colorful Night Market. Every evening along the main street, the area’s ethnic minorities gather to sell their handicrafts. The quiet evening atmosphere and soft lights of the stalls combine to create a magical market setting from which to shop for souvenirs.
    You will then be dropped off at your hotel to relax. Evening at leisure.
