Today, your private car and guide pick you up at your hotel to start a full day city tour to visit the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site of Luang Prabang and Pak Ou Caves.
You will first visit the Traditional Art and Ethnology Center to learn about Laos’ many ethnic cultures. Afterwards, we will visit magnificent Wat Xiengthong with its roofs sweeping low to the ground, which represents classical Laotian architecture. You then embark on a leisure cruise upstream on the Mekong River, which also gives us a breathtaking view of the tranquil countryside, before reaching the mysterious Pak Ou Caves, two linked caves crammed with thousands of gold lacquered Buddha statues of various shapes and sizes left by pilgrims. Along the way, we stop at the village of Ban Xanghai, where they make the local rice wine. Afterward, drive back to the city to visit Royal Palace Museum, which hosts a range of interesting artifacts. From there, we will transfer to visit Wat Siphoutthabaht to admire the sunset, the really peaceful place to catch the last beauty of the day. The tour ends after a visit to the famous Night Market, where you can find a lovely collection of handmade textiles made by local and hill tribe people surrounding Luang Prabang.
