See the city’s most ancient temple, Wat Sene as well as the breathtaking Wat Xiengthong. Embark on a scenic cruise upstream of the Mekong River then explore the mysterious Pak Ou Caves.
Wat Sene Souk Haram, also literally known as the Temple of a 100,000 treasures, is one of the most gorgeous temples in Luang Prabang, made unique by its elaborate & sparkling gold deep ochre colour. It was built in 1718 by King Kitsarath who ordered the use of 100,000 stones sourced from the Mekong River.
The temple has a vihan, a that, several koutis, a drum shelter as well as a pirogue shelter where a stunning racing pirogue of unparalleled beauty is exhibited. The Wat Sene is the first monastery in Luang Prabang whose vihan is covered with yellow & red tiles patterned after modern Thai fashion.
The Pak Ou Caves are a very popular pilgrim site for locals especially during the Lao New Year in April. They are quite near the Ban Xang Hai village, famous for its wine & wine earthen jars. it is an excellent side trip where you'll have the opportunity to try for yourself locally produced wine & whisky.
Your last stop is Ban Phanom, a quaint little village known for their silk & cotton woven fabrics where you can pick up unique souvenirs of your trip to historical Luang Prabang.
