DAY 1:  LUANG PRABANG – ARRIVAL – CITY TOUR    

On arrival at the airport, you will be met and transferred to check in the hotel.

After a soft rest, your city tour begins with a visit to the Traditional Art and Ethnology Center to learn about Laos’ many ethnic cultures. We then head to the magnificent Wat Xiengthong with its roofs sweeping low to the ground, which represents classical Laotian architecture.  We still have time to visit the Royal Palace Museum, which hosts a range of interesting artifacts.  A visit to Luang Prabang would be incomplete without ascending the 329 steps to the top of Phousi Hill for a beautiful sunset view of the city and its glowing reflection on the Mekong River. The tour ends after a visit to the famous Night Market, where you can find a lovely collection of handmade textiles made by local and hilltribe people surrounding Luang Prabang. Overnight in Luang Prabang

Optional: Enjoy a private Baci ceremony after sunset at a local family. The Baci ceremony as a traditional ritual of the Lao people expresses the spirituality of the country and is a highly memorable experience and a deep insight into Lao culture for the participants.

DAY 2:  LUANG PRABANG – PAK OU CAVES – ELEPHANT FARM – NAM OU RIVERSIDE RESORT

Early morning, we embark on a cruise upstream on the Mekong River, which also gives us a breathtaking view of the tranquil countryside, before reaching the mysterious Pak Ou Caves, two linked caves crammed with thousands of gold lacquered Buddha statues of various shapes and sizes left by pilgrims.  En route, you will stop at Ban Muang Keo, a well-known village for its traditional Lao rice whisky distilling.

After visiting the caves, we will continue our cruise on the lazy Nam Ou River to the Nam Ou Elephant Farm, the unique farm located along the Nam Ou River. After strolling around to visit the farm, we will have 01 hour elephant ride to visit some nearby villages.

Today, we will spend the night at Nam Ou Riverside Resort, which locates near the Elephant Farm

DAY 3:  NAM OU RIVERSIDE – KUANG SI WATERFALLS – LUANG PRABANG

An optional early start gives you the fantastic opportunity to participate in the daily morning rituals of saffron-clad monks collecting offerings of Alms (ubiquitous sticky rice) from the faithful residents. This tradition is very unique in Laos, being the only Buddhist nation still preserving the procession.

After breakfast at the hotel, we will transfer back to the city center and take a stroll around the city to visit Big Brother Mouse, which is the most famous bookshop in Laos. The next stop is Ock Pop Tock, meaning East Meets West, where you can learn about the traditional weaving in Laos. We then visit Wat Visoun, dating back to 1513 during the reign of King Wisunarat (Visoun), this is Luang Prabang’s oldest temple and was once home to the Prabang Buddhas. 

Laos is also known for its traditional handicrafts, and today you will visit local village of Lao ethnic minority groups at Ban Ouay and Ban Thapene. We then drive to the beautiful Khouangsi Waterfall where you can splash around in the turquoise pools or walk along the forest paths. Before returning to Luang Prabang, we stop to visit the Kuang Si Falls Butterfly Park (closed on Tuesday), one of the must-visit spots, newly opened on January 2014. Overnight in Luang Prabang

DAY 4:  LUANG PRABANG – COOKING CLASS @ TAMARIND GARDEN           

Today, you will take part in the cooking class at Tamarind Restaurant.

We start with a visit to the major food market; explain what the foods are and what they are used for.

We then transfer back to Tamarind Garden to cook and eat. What you experience should be:

§ Varieties of jeow: the fundamental Lao spicy dipping sauces

§ Mok Pa, a popular dish of herbed fish steamed in banana leaves

§ Tamarind’s specialty: lemongrass stuffed with chicken & herbs

§ Laap/koy, a minced meat salad, fragrant with herbs

§ Dessert course: a surprise!

§ Of course you’ll learn the art to perfect sticky rice and its eating etiquette.

The lunch should be finished at around 2:30. We then transfer back to hotel. The rest of the day is your own free time at leisure. Overnight in Luang Prabang
