2 Days / 1 Night - Tour
Day 1 Arrival - Luang Prabang
Late morning arrival in Luang Prabang. The ancient capital of the
former Kingdom is one of the best-preserved ancient cities in South
East Asia. Nestled in the mountains at the confluence of the Mekong
and Khan Rivers the town has a unique charm with gilded temples
on nearly every corner and saffron robed monks strolling through
the quiet streets. The city center of this World Heritag Site has
kept the flair of the bygone days and is rich in cultural heritage
with old monasteries and temples. Transfer to your hotel and check-in.
Lunch at local restaurant.
This afternoon we will visit Wat Wisunalat, one
of the city's oldest temple with That Makmo, the so called Watermelon
Stupa because of it's round dome. From there we will walk a few
steps up to Wat Aham, which is known for it's two large Banayan
Trees. Next we will walk up 350 steps to Wat Phousi Hill. The temples
on the slopes of Phousi are all of rather recent construction but
from the top we have a very nice view over the city and it's surroundings.
Late afternoon we will visit Wat Pha Baht Tai, a very pleasant place
to see the sun go down over the Mekong River. Dinner at local restaurant.
Accommodation at Hotel, Luang Prabang.

Breakfast. This morning we will discover the oldest part of the
