DETAIL ITINERARY
DAY 01: LUANG PRABANG ARRIVAL
Time seems to stand still in Luang Prabang, a city with all the charm of a quaint European town mixed with the wonderful, woodsy spice of Asia. The city is small, and just about everywhere can be reached by foot. Upon arrival at the airport, meet with your guide and transfer to town. After an orientation tour of the spiritual capital of Laos, ascend the 200 steps to Wat Chompet for a different view of the city at sunset. Opt to visit night market, the only nightlife of this laid-back town, for traditional textiles and handicrafts made by the hill tribes. Overnight at hotel in Luang Prabang.
Meals included: Dinner

DAY 02: LUANG PRABANG CITY TOUR
Start visiting this sacred city of temples with a visit to the National Museum, the former Royal Palace housing a collection of valuables including the famous Prabang Buddha statue and gifts from foreign dignitaries. Other muse-see places include Wat Visoun, the 16th century temple that served as a small museum for religious artifacts; Wat Xiengthong, the 16th century temple said to be the most beautiful temple in town, epitomizing all the elegance and grace of Luang Prabang architecture; the privately-run Traditional Arts & Ethnology Center featuring clothing, household objects, religious artifacts, and tools of Laos’ ethnic groups. Overnight at hotel in Luang Prabang.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

DAY 03: LUANG PRABANG - KUANG SI WATERFALLS
You have the option to wake up before dawn to witness and participate in offering alms to hundreds of saffron-robed monks - an awe-inspiring sight for many travelers. This early morning ritual dates back generations in Laos. Watch the town come to life in the morning and then Return to your hotel for breakfast. After breakfast, enjoy a visit to Kuang Si Waterfall, south west of Luang Prabang with stops en route to visit ethnic minority villages. It is possible to walk to the top of the falls via a steep track and if the weather is good, or swim in the clear water at the foot of the falls. Return to Luang Prabang and spend the rest of the afternoon at your leisure. Overnight at hotel in Luang Prabang.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

DAY 04: LUANG PRABANG - KAMU LODGE (Kamu lodge is not ideal from May to August due to the summer heat)
This morning, transfer by tuk-tuk, little motorcycle-powered truck beds with benches, to boat docking station. Embark for a boat trip on the Mekong River to visit the famous Pak Ou Caves where hundreds of gilded and wooden Buddha statues are housed inside a towering limestone cliff.  Stop by at the local primary school en route to get a glimpse of the education system and infrastructure. If you wish to give something back to the community, ‘practical’ things such as books, school bags and clothes can be purchased locally. Continue up river for an hour to reach the Kamu Lodge. In a unique setting and with activities such rice planting, gold panning and fishing in the Mekong, this eco-lodge will open your eyes to a very different Lao experience. Overnight at the Kamu Lodge.
