This trip is designed for tourists who wish to discover the ancient Laos with the highlights of Vientiane and the peaceful Luang Prabang.
Luang Prabang has been claimed by the UNESCO to be ‘the best preserved city in South East Asia’. During our time here, we visit the impressive stupa of Wat Visoun and the shrine of Wat Aham, Wat Mai, we then climb up to the top of mount Phousi for an enjoyable exploration of the sacred, gilded stupa as well as a panoramic view of the city at sunset and the Mekong River.
This 6 day – 5 night trip takes you to Xiengkhouang, an area situated in the north of Laos, famous for the mysterious Plain of Jars which are stone jars in different sizes carved out of solid rock scattered all over a plateau. Its historical archaeology traces back more than 2500 – 5000 years, and its purpose is still unknown to scientists. The Indochina war began here in the secret land of Laos and on this tour you will see the after war-affects on ancient sites.
UNESCO has recognized and preserved a former capital of the realm, Luang Prabang also known as the “Kingdom of Millions of Elephants” in the 13th century. This tour takes you to visit historical relics including a trip to the ruins of the Khmer temple Wat Phou in Pakse, the mysterious plain of jars in Xiengkhouang and the ancient remnants at Don Khone Island. You will also absorb the hidden sleeping beauty within the 4000-island region, and be captivated at the sight of Southeast Asia’s largest waterfall, Khone Phapeng.
Luang Prabang is perhaps the best-preserved traditional city in Southeast Asia. The tranquility and charm of this town with its splendid natural scenery and cultural sights make it one of the most delightful places to visit in Laos.
