In the charming UNESCO-protected town of Luang Prabang, golden Buddha images adorn gilded temples with sweeping roofs, while saffron-clad monks drift silently by.
We will stroll through the town stopping at some of the many temples. One of the most photographed sights is the unique pink mosaic of the tree of life at Wat Xieng Thong. In the 16th century Wat Visoun, we will find a beautiful collection of antique wooden Buddhas.
In the National Museum, formerly the Royal Palace, we will see the royal family’s private quarters – preserved just as they were when the family were forced to leave. The Hor Phrabang contains the palace’s most prized art including the Phrabang itself, a beautiful Buddha image.
A climb up Mount Phou Si will bring us to the hilltop offering beautiful views over the temples and river.
Throughout the tour we will see many other temples including Wat Sibounheuang, Wat Si Moungkhoun, Wat Sop, Wat Mai, Wat Sene and Wat Aham.
