Photogenic Luang Prabang
- Full Day
Explore Luang Prabang with a knowledgeable local guide and a professional photographer. Visit the highlights of this UNESCO World Heritage site and also learn about Laos’ rich, colourful culture. The guide will help relate the history and significance of the sights you visit, and the photographer will offer tips and guidance to help you capture them on camera.

Begin at stately Wat Visoun, which is a must-see not only for its unusual watermelon-shape but also its historical value and impressive collection of religious artefacts. Continue down the Khan River and climb to the top of Mount Phousi, the city’s highest point. Enjoy sweeping views from on high, gaining a new perspective of Luang Prabang and the Mekong River.

Having worked up an appetite, it is time for a lunch break. Tamarind is the perfect restaurant for sampling traditional Lao dishes and learning about the importance of food in the local culture. Visit Wat Xieng Thong. This is Luang Prabang’s most revered temple, and for good reason! It is one of the oldest in town and is covered in ornate carvings and mosaics, unmatched by any other temple in the country.

Zig-zag onwards through the lanes and streets of the city, encountering friendly locals as they go about their day to day routine, stopping at more incredible pagodas, such as Wat Sensoukharam with its dazzling gold stenciling, before arriving at Wat Mai, a Buddhist temple whose gold-covered bas relief is an incredible piece of craftsmanship.

If you wish, take a short walk through the vibrant night market before bidding farewell to your guides. (L)
