ITINERARY

DAY 1

Luang Prabang Culture Walk

DAY 1 - Luang Prabang Culture Walk

Start the day at the former governor’s residence, an elegant colonial residence which is now home to the Sofitel Hotel. From here, stroll to the UXO Visitor Centre and learn about the Secret War in Laos. From 1964 to 1973, during the years of the Vietnam War, Laos was heavily bombed and still suffers today from unexploded bombs hidden in its earth. Gain insight into the shocking past at this highly informative museum, featuring real-life ‘bombies’ and videos of survivors.  

Keep walking and, after a quick stop at a bamboo basketry shop, selling a variety of handmade household goods, pop by a local soap factory that supports underprivileged children. Continue to Wat Manorom, one of the oldest Buddhist temples in Luang Prabang, before strolling along some of the well-preserved, UNESCO World Heritage-listed buildings the city is famous for. Reflecting a unique blend of traditional Lao and European-style architecture, many of the buildings have been transformed into tourist accommodation. Along the way, take a short break to sample a local steamed rice pancake before heading to the Amantaka Hotel. Another example of French colonial architecture, marvel at the outstanding building and explore the work of local photographers at the luxury hotel’s own photo gallery.

End this cultural walking tour at Friends Gallery boutique shop. Peruse the many beautiful treasures on offer whose proceeds from sales help finance free medical treatments at Lao Friends Hospital for Children.
