Luang Prabang World Heritage Tour
Few cities offer such immersion in history within stunning natural surroundings as Luang Prabang in Laos. Surrounded by thickly forested mountains and situated at the confluence of the Khan and Mekong Rivers, the UNESCO World Heritage City of Luang Prabang has a tranquil, old world charm rarely found in Asia today.
Amidst the colonial remnants are more than 30 gilded Buddhist temples, creating a town rich in atmosphere and history. Cruise Asia by Destination Asia guide visitors through Luang Prabang’s fabulous evening market with a local guide, embark on a Mekong River cruise and wake early one morning to offer alms to monks – a ritual which is still very much a part of everyday life in Laos. Discovering ancient temples in this UNESCO World Heritage Site is a highlight, with guests taken to Wat Visoun (the oldest living temple in Luang Prabang), and Wat Xieng Thong (often said to be Luang Prabang’s most beautiful temple).
