What To Expect

Meet your guide at your hotel to begin your half-day city tour of Luang Prabang. Discover the city’s colonial history and rich spiritual heritage as you follow your private guide into the heart of the UNESCO-listed town and admire the French Indochinese buildings and ancient Buddhist temples.

Visit the Royal Palace Museum, where you can marvel at the prized gold Buddha and peek into the living quarters of King Sisavang Vong. Then, continue to Wat Sene, Luang Prabang’s oldest temple, and prepare to be dazzled by the lavish ochre and gold interiors.

Grab your camera and continue to Wat Xiengthong, a striking example of classical Laotian architecture with its sweeping tiered roofs. Make two final stops to see the 16th-century stupa of Wat Visoun and peek into the peaceful shrine of Wat Aham, before ending your tour with drop-off at your hotel.

This tour was so much better than...
Robert F, Oct 2017
This tour was so much better than the alms giving tour. The guide spoke good English, very knowledgeable in his explainations of the temples and royal palace visited. The tour guide was a former monk so his knowlegde of the temples were from an insider perspective. Would recommend this tour especially over the poor alms giving tour we went on.
