Luang Prabang Heritage - 4 Days

The Ancient Town of Luang Prabang

The ancient town of Luang Prabang is situated in northern Laos.  The city was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995. Considered by many travelers and writers as being the heart of Laotian culture. The tiny town is encircled by mountains and it is 700 meters above sea level at the confluence of the Nam Khan and Mekong Rivers. Being Laos’ premier tourist destination and (arguably) Southeast Asia’s most beautiful spot. Tourists will pay more for the innate pleasures of eating, drinking, and sleeping than in the country’s capital city Vientiane.

The ancient town Luang Prabang was the royal capital of the Lan Xang Kingdom until King Phothisarat moved the administrative seat to Vientiane in 1545. Regardless, it has continued to overlook Vientiane as the destination of choice with its amalgamation of crumbling French architecture, glistening temples, and extensive natural beauty. Even the hardest of hearts would have a struggle not to warm to the place.

The ancient town Luang Prabang’s entire historical section dedicated to tourism. With everything from former royal palaces to over 33 Wats (temples), on the tourist trail. This former Royal capital still remains the main center for Buddhist learning in Laos. This is the perfect location for spiritual contemplation. Cascading waterfalls, scaling peaks and the milky-brown waters of the Mekong River provide ample opportunity to swim, climb and sail your way through Luang Prabang.

Luang Prabang (ຫລວງພະບາງ) slows your pulse and awakens your imagination with its combination of world-class comfort and spiritual nourishment. Sitting at the sacred confluence of the Mekong River and the Nam Khan (Khan River). Nowhere else can lay claim to this Unesco-protected gem’s romance of saffron-clad monks, faded Indochinese villas and exquisite Gallic cuisine. Witness an outstanding natural beauty, the whole ensemble encircled by hazy green mountains.
