The colonial mansions, tree-lined boulevards and Buddhist temples make Vientiane a charming town on the banks of the mighty Mekong River. The former royal capital of Luang Prabang never fails to enchant visitors with its abundance of temples, faded French architecture and its gentle friendly people. An additional highlight is the famous Plan of Jars in Xieng Khouang.

Day 1: Luang Prabang.

Meet upon arrival at the airport, transfer and check-in at your hotel. In the afternoon, visit the National Museum (former King’s Palace) displaying a collection of personal artifacts of the Royal Family. Continue to visit the nearby Vat Mai temple, which was the residence of a Buddhist patriarch before 197, before climbing Phousi Hill to enjoy the sunset over the city and the Mekong River. Overnight in Luang Prabang.

Day 2: Luang Prabang / Pak Ou / Luang Prabang (B).

After breakfast, visit Vat Xieng Thong, considered as the most beautiful temple of Luang Prabang with roofs that sweep low to the ground. Then take a traditional riverboat for a 2-hour cruise upstream the Mekong River towards Pak Ou, at the confluence of the Nam Ou and Mekong Rivers, to visit the sacred caves of Tham Ting and Tham Phum, home to hundreds of Buddha statues. On the way, stop at Ban Xang Hai village where sticky rice wine distillation can be seen. Return to Luang Prabang and visit Vat Visoun temple with its Singhalese-style stupa, That Makmo, and Vat Aham, one of the city’s major tutelary shrines housing the puppets of the Lao ancestors. Overnight in Luang Prabang.

Day 3: Luang Prabang / Vientiane (B).

After breakfast, time at leisure until your transfer to the airport to take your flight to Vientiane. Meet upon arrival, transfer and check-in at your hotel.
