Return to Luang Prabang for sunset at Phu Si Temple and a chance to sample some local specialities in a riverside restaurant.
Overnight Luang Prabang

Nestled in the mountains, long isolated from the outside world, we’ll discover World Heritage Site, Luang Prabang’s fabulous temples, French colonial architecture and taste Lao delicacies (and the famous Lao beer!) in riverside cafes. Morning walking tour of the town including the National Museum & former king’s palace, Wat Xiengthong, Phu Si Hill Temple and the Fine Arts School to see how traditional Lao arts and handicrafts are being preserved. The afternoon is at leisure to allow you to wander the quiet, picturesque lanes or check out the hill-tribe handicraft market?

Stops on the way include; Ban Kiu Kam Pone, a Khmu village, Phou Khoun for lunch, and the Hmong village of Ban Son Boom. Our final stop of the day is a reminder that this region played a major part during the Vietnam War as we visit a hidden cave temple that served as an army hospital during the combat.

Day tour of some of the city’s fascinating sites; Si Saket Temple with its thousand Buddha images, the bustling morning market and Vientiane’s most famous monument – the That Luang Stupa as well as the unusual ‘Buddha Park’.
