Experience

A centuries-old spiritual sanctuary, Luang Prabang is a place of serenity, beauty and escape on the peninsula between the lush banks of the Khan and Mekong Rivers

Adventures

Pervaded by an air of peace and crisscrossed by some 1,200 saffron-robed Buddhist monks as they make their way between the dozens of temples, Luang Prabang lives at its own speed. Whether it is a morning blessing or simply a tranquil stroll through the UNESCO World Heritage Site, there is always something new to experience. Outside the city, both protected natural sites and Laos’s rich culture offer insight and discovery

 

THE SPIRITUAL CAPITAL OF LAOS AND THE FORMER ROYAL CAPITAL, LUANG PRABANG IS SUFFUSED BY BUDDHIST RHYTHMS

Witness the daily Tak Bat each morning as monks and novices walk the streets at sunrise accepting alms, or create a floral offering for the temple

 

CRUISE SOUTH ON THE MEKONG PAST THE DRAMATIC, PRISTINE LANDSCAPE EN ROUTE TO SECLUDED WATERFALLS

A short bicycle ride through rice paddies and a Lao Loum fishing village brings you to cascading 30-metre falls

 

MORE THAN 30 TEMPLES REMAIN IN THE CITY, HIGHLIGHTED BY WAT XIENG THONG, A LAO MASTERPIECE WITH LOW ROOFS AND DELICATE CARVINGS

Private temple visits can be arranged and can feature quiet contemplation or a celebratory atmosphere during a bun festival

 

PILGRIMS HAVE FLOCKED TO THE PAK OU CAVES FOR CENTURIES, placing OFFERINGs ON THE ROCKY ShELVES

Set north of Luang Prabang on the Mekong, near the mouth of the Ou River, the lower and upper caves look out to the water and lush rainforest beyond

 

LUANG PRABANG IS A LIVING REPOSITORY OF THE REGION’S HISTORY, ALIVE TODAY AND CONSTANTLY AWARE OF THE CENTURIES PAST

Visit the National Museum or Buddhist Archives, which contains more than 20,000 photos collected by the monks since the 1880s, or see the Pra Bang, the 83-centimetre Buddha statue that is the town’s namesake
