A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Luang Prabang's old city is mellow, charming, and full of character. Gain a comprehensive insight into the historic wonders of the country's capital. See iconic temples, ascend Mount Phousi, and enjoy picturesque views with a local guide on this half-day tour.
Begin your day with hotel pickup in an air-conditioned coach. As you head to Luang Prabang's Old Town, your guide introduces you to the heritage of the country's capital. For a dose of culture, visit the city's numerous and renowned Buddhist temples and monasteries. First, see Wat Visun, Laos's oldest operating temple, and pass by the smaller Wat Aham—the Monastery of the Opened Heart. Then visit the majestic Wat Xieng Thong, one of the most significant monasteries in the country.
Afterward, continue your tour to the National Museum, formerly the Royal Palace. Admire its elegant blend of French and Lao architecture and explore the rich history of the Lao royal family. Next, head to the top of Mount Phousi, where you can enjoy stunning vistas of the city below, including the Nam Kan river joining the Mekong. Take a moment to relish the views before returning to your Luang Prabang hotel.
