1 day Luang Prabang City Tour
This guided city sightseeing tour in Luang Prabang World Heritage town will help you understand why Luang Prabang is called the “Jewel on the Mekong”. Exploring hidden temples, monasteries and of course the interesting Lao history of the former kingdom will highlight this day.
After breakfast we will start this city sightseeing tour around Luang Prabang town. We visit the vegetable market and the former King’s Palace in the UNESCO World Heritage town of Luang Prabang learning about today’s life and history. Luang Prabang is maybe the best-preserved traditional city in Southeast Asia. The tranquility and charm of this town with its splendid natural scenery and cultural sights, like the Wat Xieng Thong, make it one of the most delightful places to visit in Laos.
Later in the day we’ll visit the impressive stupa of Wat Visoun and the shrine of Wat Aham. In the evening, ready for sunset, climb up to the top of Phu Si Mountain for an enjoyable exploration of the sacred, gilded stupa.
