City Tour of Luang Prabang – Departure

We start the day with a morning visit to the Phou Si Market where you will see such diverse offerings as dried buffalo skin, local tea and saltpetre among the chickens, vegetables and hill-tribe weavings. Luang Prabang is a fascinating historical city with a delightful mix of Buddhist temples and French Colonial buildings. In fact, it is still very much a rural kind of city in comparison to neighbouring countries. Our first stop is Wat Visoun: which is a replica of an older Temple which was erected in the same place back in 1513, this Wat houses numerous religious art treasures. Next, we head to Wat Xieng Thong a royal Wat built on the banks of the Mekong river built in 1559 which has remained relatively undamaged by the various invasions mainly Chinese over the centuries. This temple is decorated extensively with impressive carving, murals, and mosaics. Also, visit the Laotian Royal Palace officially known as Haw Kham which was built during the French colonial era for the King and his family. The site was chosen so that official visitors to Luang Prabang could disembark from their river voyages directly by the palace and be received there. In 1975, the monarchy was overthrown and the Palace was then converted into a National Museum. Today it houses many artefacts which showcase the richness of Laotian culture. We will continue to enjoy the atmosphere at Wat Mai built in 1796 and sits at the foot of Mount Phousi.

After city tour transfer to the airport for your departure flight back home.
