Detailed itinerary

Day 1: Welcome to Luang Prabang, Laos


Welcome to the beautiful country of Laos! Your private guide and driver will be waiting for you at the Luang Prabang Airport with a sign with your name on it. They will then take you straight to your hotel.


After check-in at your hotel, you will have time to relax and adjust to the pace of Luang Prabang.


NOTE: To get into Laos, you must have both a passport and a visa. You must also have at least six months left on your passport after the date you enter Laos. You can get a visa on arrival in Laos. Make sure you have two photos that fit the size of a passport.


Overnight in Luang Prabang

Day 2: Luang Prabang – Fullday City Tour


Let's go check out the Morning Market, a bustling thoroughfare where you can buy anything from fresh frogs to brightly colored vegetables...

From the busy market, you can go to Wat Mai, one of the city's most ornate monasteries, and Wat Visoun, a temple dating back to the 16th century famous for its large stupa and its collection of antique gilded Buddhas,

Next is the former King's Palace, where you can learn about Luang Prabang's past and present. The old Wat Xieng Thong temple is close by. It has a beautiful low, sweeping roof. It is the most famous and well-known monastery in Luang Prabang.



After lunch at a local restaurant, drive out of the city to visit Ban Xangkhong, the Thai Lue village known for its arts and crafts. We also go to Ban Xienglek, a nearby village that is known for making traditional Saa paper.

Go back to the City and take a short walk around the small roads to see the traditional wooden house of Heuan Chan, which is 100 years old and is called the Chantal wooden house.

Visit the Traditional Art and Ethnology Centre (TAEC), which is the only independent resource center in Laos that is focused on the many different ethnic groups that live there. If you have time, you can visit the Ock Pop Tock Living Craft Center. It is near the Mekong and has a beautiful, traditional style. Weavers, spinners, and batik makers work there to make high-quality fabrics. Free tours are given every half hour.

When you feel like you've learned enough, you can climb to the top of Mount Phousi, the highest point in the city, where you can see the city and the Mekong River below.

The tour ends after a stop at the famous Night Market, where you can find beautiful handmade textiles made by people from Luang Prabang and the nearby hill tribes.


Overnight in Luang Prabang

Meals included: Breakfast and Lunch.

Day 3: Luang Prabang – The Pak Ou Cave - Kuang Si Waterfall

Early morning

At 5:30 a.m., Let's wake up early to see the Tak Bak ceremony, also known as "the monks' quest." This is an old Asian Buddhist religious custom that is only kept up in Luang Prabang. Since 2,500 years ago, hundreds of monks have walked barefoot from their temples to the center of the city every morning. In a long line, they slowly walk through the streets to get alms, especially "sticky rice," from people who are religious and are waiting quietly on the sidewalks. In exchange for prayers and blessings, these people give them food, especially "sticky rice."

After you're done, go back to the hotel for breakfast to get full energy before going to two amazing places. The Pak Ou Cave is to the north of Luang Prabang city, and the Kuang Si Waterfall is to the south. This tour will take you to both of them, with a beautiful drive along the Mekong River in between.



Early in the morning, you'll meet your guide and take a forty-minute drive to the Pak Ou Village. There, you can check out the many crafts that the locals make before taking a small boat across the Mekong River to the base of a limestone cliff, where the Pak Ou Cave is. The lower cave is very impressive, and it is full of statues and relics from Buddhism. Take your time to look around the sacred area, which smells like burning incense and looks out over the beautiful Mekong landscape. Up a winding set of stairs, grab a flashlight, and you'll find another interesting cave with ancient Buddhist relics that is easy to get around in before lunch.



After that, we'll take a boat across the Mekong River again and then drive 1.5 hours downriver to the famous Kuang Si Waterfall. On the way, we'll stop at the well-known Whiskey Village and try some Lao Lao made in the area. All year long, the jungle around the waterfall stays lush and beautiful. During the dry season, the water is calm and turquoise. During the rainy season, the water is loud and powerful. In either case, you'll get to enjoy the fresh air and beauty of nature. An Asiatic Bear Sanctuary is built into the landscape. Here, you can see these beautiful animals up close and help take care of the animals in the area.

Late in the afternoon, we'll drive back to Luang Prabang so you can do your own thing in the evening.


Overnight in Luang Prabang

Meals included: Breakfast and Lunch.

Day 4: Luang Prabang – Vang Vieng

We'll head to Vang Vieng. Vang Vieng is more of a large village than a town, and its main attractions are the stunning karst landscape and the mysterious caves, some of which have names that appear repeatedly in local mythology and are thought to be home to spirits.

The scenery during the transfer is fascinating and provides a glimpse into hill tribe life.

Our first stop in Vang Vieng is the world-famous Tham Chang Cave, which is brimming with interesting legends. This location has historical significance as an impregnable safe haven from the devastating raids of northern Chinese predators. The upper cave has been illuminated by electricity, and visitors can gaze out over the breathtaking scenery and the Nam Song River through a crack in the cave's limestone walls.


Overnight in Vang Vieng

Meals included: Breakfast and Lunch.

Day 5: Vang Vieng – Nam Ngun – Vientiane

The first stop of the day is at Nam Ngum Lake, a large manmade reservoir formed when the Nam Ngum River was dammed.

We ford the river and arrive in Ban Huai Ngai, a village with a markedly different way of life. The following stop is at the salt-producing village of Ban Keun.

We take a long-tail boat out onto the lake and from there to the river's little islands where the fishermen live.

Then take a transfer to Vientiane, the Laotian capital, and a peaceful spot on the Mekong.


Overnight in Vientiane

Meals included: Breakfast and Lunch.

Day 6: Vientiane City Tour

After a full breakfast, we set out to see the city's most famous sights, like Wat Si Saket and its storied collection of thousands of Buddha statues, which legend has warded off the Siamese invasion of 1828.


Wat Ho Prakeo, which was constructed in 1865 and is home to the renowned Emerald Buddha, is our next stop, followed by That Luang Stupa, the most revered structure in all of Laos. The latter is believed by locals to contain a piece of Buddha's body that was brought there in the third century BC.

The Patuxai, also known as the "Laotian Gate of Triumph," is the final stop on our tours of Vientiane.

Drive to "Buddha Park," or Wat Xieng Khouan, in the afternoon. In 1958, the Buddhist-Hinduist cleric Boun Léua attempted to "unite" the two religions through sculpture by drawing inspiration from both Buddhism and Hinduism.

Notable features include a 40-meter-long reclining Buddha statue and a massive hollow sculpture in the shape of a head that serves as a passage from hell to heaven and grants access to an upper level with a stunning panorama of the park below.

After that, we head back to the city in time to see the sunset over the Mekong.


Overnight in Vientiane

Meals included: Breakfast

Day 7: Vientiane Departure

Start your day with a tasty breakfast at your hotel.

Free time to do some shopping and explore around before departing to the airport.

Visas and Entry Requirements

All countries require a valid passport (with a minimum of 6 months validity). For the most up-to-date visa requirements, call your local embassy or consulate or talk with us. It is up to you to make sure that you have the right travel documents. Whether or not you need a visa for your trip depends on where you come from and where you are going. We try to keep the information below as up-to-date as we can, but rules do change, and sometimes without notice. Even though we give you the following information in good faith, it is very important that you check it for yourself and know that you are in charge of your own visa needs.


Let's use our guide to make it easy to get a visa.


Laos: Tourist visas are required to enter Laos. Tourist visas for 30 days are given out by the Lao government at all international airports and most border crossings. Go to the visa desk when you get to the airport, and the staff will walk you through the process. The process is fast and easy to understand. You will need two passport-size photographs and approx $50

What to Take

What you need to bring depends on the trip you choose and the countries or regions you plan to visit. Since you have to carry your own bags, we suggest that you pack as little as possible. As a general rule, we try to make sure you don't have to walk with your bags for more than 15 to 20 minutes. This is why we suggest keeping the weight of your bags between 10-15kg/22-30lb. On Amazing trips, you shouldn't bring a suitcase. Most travelers bring a small to medium-sized backpack or rolling bag (please, no XXL ones!) because they need to fit under the beds on sleeper trains. You will also need a day pack or bag to carry water, cameras, and other electronics like iPods and cell phones.

Money exchange

Since currency exchange rates in Asia change often, you should check www.xe.com every day for the most up-to-date rates. There are a lot of ATMs that take Visa, Mastercard, JCB, and American Express, but most of them are only in big cities. Most transactions are done with US dollars, and we recommend that you bring a small USD unmarked note. Some shops will use credit cards, but there may be a 2-4% fee for the transaction.
