    • Tour the highlights of the city, including Pha That Luang, a gleaming golden Stupa which is perhaps most important national monument in Laos; Ho Pha Keo, the formal royal temple, now a museum with beautiful examples of Buddhist sculpture; Wat Si Saket and Patuxai, a monumental arch inspired by the Arc de Triomphe, but executed with Lao motifs.

    • Visit the nearby Wat Aham before continuing to Wat Xieng Thong, the crowning jewel of all the monasteries and temples in the city. Its many ornate buildings feature exquisite mosaic and gold-stenciled murals.

  • DAY-3 Luang Prabang City Tour expand_more
    • Visit the National Museum (Royal Palace), a modest but graceful building which combines traditional Lao and French beaux-arts motifs. This turn-of-the-century royal residence is still as it was when the royal family last lived here. It provides unique insights into the history of Laos. 

    • Continue to Wat Mai, constructed in 1821 during the reign of King Manthatourath. It was once the residence of Phra Sangkharaj (the Patriarch of the Buddhist clergy).
