Day 2/ Vientiane – Luang Prabang (B)
Morning features a short city tour in the capital, including the oldest Wat Sisaket, the former royal temple of Wat Prakeo, the famous and sacred structure of That Luang Stupa. We can stop for photographs at  Patuxay Monument and visit the central market known as the ‘Morning Market’. Take a short flight to Luang Prabang, the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage City. After a short rest, we climb up to the top of Mount Phousi for panoramic sunset views over the ancient city and the Mekong River. We then stroll around the Night Market.

We then board a cruise upstream on the Mekong River to the mysterious of Pak Ou Caves. Along the way, we stop at the village of Ban Xanghai, where they make the local rice wine. On our way back, we pass the local villages at Ban Xiengmene and Ban Chan continue to see the royal temple at Wat Longkhoun, which once belonged to a royal family patronage near by Sackarine Caves. We cross to city and take a short drive to Ban Phanom, a village well known for its hand weaving. Return to hotel.
Day 4/ Luang Prabang – Departure (B)
An optional early start gives you the fantastic opportunity to participate in the daily morning rituals of saffron-clad monks collecting offerings of Alms (ubiquitous sticky rice) from the faithful residents. This tradition is very unique in Laos, being the only Buddhist nation still preserving the procession. This is a real highlight of the tour prior to saying goodbye to this charming city.   Morning we visit the Luang Prabang market and the National Museum (closed on Tuesday) at the former Royal Palace and Central Market (if time permit) before transfer to the airport for depature flight. Have a great journey!
