What comes to mind when you think of Luang Prabang? Temples perhaps? Maybe beautiful boulevards and streets filled with trees, scattered colonial buildings and monasteries? Or even a laid back atmosphere and attitude? How about an image of charming Buddhist history and heritage? You’ll get all that and more once you step into this fascinating city, err town.
Just so you know, Luang Prabang is a UNESCO Heritage Town. And it isn’t surprising. All those elements mentioned earlier contribute to it. First, let’s absorb the local flavor by strolling around in the evening market. Then, wake up to the soothing morning. The earlier the better. Because then you can witness something cool. Have you ever seen lines of orange clad monks on an alms walk? It is quite an amazing site.
It is now time to prepare for an exploration of Luang Prabang the best way we know how – by an electric bike. These hybrid machines function like a morotbike with an accelerator and as a bike with pedals. The thing is, they are battery powered. This is definitely great for the environment.
So, what are some of the site you will be seeing? Wat Xieng Tong should certainly not be missed. Built in 1560, it is one of the city’s and country’s oldest temples. Not only that, it is filled with glittering charm and beauty. The interior is certainly atmospheric. Go in and experience it for yourself.
Next, we recommend heading over to the Royal Palace, also known as Haw Kham. The architecture of the buildings has a mixed of traditional Lao motifs and French colonial styles, certainly pleasing on the eye. Within the complex is a temple, some statues and a beautiful lotus pond. A sunset climb up Mount Phousi is highly recommended. Bring out the camera!
Don’t forget, Luang Prabng is full of temples. This electric bike tour of the town allows you to go at your own pace. Or perhaps you’d like to step off the bike for a little bit and enjoy a nice and peaceful cruise on the Mekong River with a sunset boat trip?
And what about Lao food? It is certainly delicious; a celebration of flavors if you will. Dine at some of the town’s best names and truly embrace the taste of Laos.
Luang Prabang. It always leaves a lasting impression on visitors. But so does the entire country. So here they are our Laos tours that are aimed to give you a fair assessment of this beautiful and laid back country.
