Breakfast, then we shall start with a tour to visit the World Heritage described by the UNESCO as the best preserved city in South East Asia. We will start with the impressive stupa of Wat Visoun, Wat Sene – the oldest temple in Luang Prabang, and National Museum. Then and the magnificent Wat Xiengthong with its low sweeping roofs, representing classical Laotian architecture. Then we board a cruise upstream on the Mekong river, which gives us a panoramic view of the tranquil countryside as well as an interesting visit to the mysterious of 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.
