If you love to discover religion, a full-day tour to Luang Prabang's temples is a must-do activity.
What to Expect
Your day begins with pick-up at your hotel by tuk tuk. You will then discover the amazing temples of Luang Prabang. Start the day at Wat Visoun (Wat Wisunalat). The oldest functioning temple in Luang Prabang, Wat Visoun dates back to 1513 and contains a collection of antique wooden Buddhas.
Explore the nearby Wat Aham before continuing to Wat Xieng Thong, the crown jewel of all the monasteries and temples in the city. Its many ornate buildings feature exquisite mosaics and gold-stenciled murals. Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant.
From there, stroll down the main street of Luang Prabang, stopping at some of the many temples that line its sides, including Wat Sibounheuang, Wat Si Moungkhoun, Wat Sop, Wat Sene and Wat Mai.
Visit Mount Phousi at sunset: climb the hillside stairs to the small temples atop Phou Si, the 100-meter high hill which sits in the middle of the town, offering beautiful views over the temples and river. Finally you will be returned to your hotel.
