DAY 1 - UNESCO Treasures of Luang Prabang

Start the tour of Luang Prabang’s historic treasures at the Wat Xieng Thong. Also known as the ‘Golden Tree Monastery’, admire the intricate decorations and elaborate mosaic of one of the city’s most characteristic temples. Continue to Luang Prabang’s largest temple, Wat Mai, and marvel at its gilded façade before stopping by the former Royal Palace. Once the residence of Laos’ royal family, the palace, blending French Beaux Arts and elements of traditional Lao architecture styles, was converted into a national museum, showcasing relics of country’s royalist past.

Opposite the museum, climb the 328 steps up Mount Phousi and be rewarded with fantastic views of the city and the hilly scenery beyond. After descending the 100-metre-high hill, continue to stroll along the picturesque streets, lined with charming UNESCO-listed French colonial buildings, and get insight into Lao culture from a local guide.
