Laos Tours > Mekong Magic

Mekong Magic
6days/5nights

Day1.   Arrival –Vientiane
On arrival in Vientiane Capital, you are met and transferred to our centrally located hotel. After a short rest, we start to visit the major sights of the capital including the oldest Wat Sisaket with thousands of miniature Buddha statues and the former royal temple of Wat Prakeo previously housed the famous Emerald Buddha Image. On the way to the famous and sacred structure of That Luang Stupa, we stop to take some pictures of the imposing Patuxai Monument, which is well known as Vientiane’s own Arc de Triumph. Overnight in Vientiane. (B)         

Day2.   Vientiane - Luang Prabang
We board a short afternoon flight to Luang Prabang, which is perhaps the best-preserved traditional city in Southeast Asia. The tranquility and charm of this town with its splendid natural scenery and cultural sights make it one of the most delightful places to visit in Laos. On arrival, we visit the impressive stupa of Wat Visoun and the shrine of Wat Aham. We then climb up to the top of Phousi Mount for an enjoyable exploration of the sacred, gilded stupa as well as a beautiful sunset view of the city and the Mekong River. Overnight in Luang Prabang. (B)

Day3.   Luang Prabang - Khouangsi Waterfalls
 
This morning you may want to wake up early and participate in the daily early morning ritual of saffron-clad monks with their black Alms-giving bowls being given offerings from the local people, including the ubiquitous sticky rice. The National Museum at the former Royal Palace, which displays a lovely collection of the artifacts reflecting the richness of Lao culture dating from the days of the early kings right through the last sovereign, and the Central Market are not to be missed. We visit these sights, today before we drive to Ban Hmong hill tribe at Ban Nam Ouay, a lowland Lao at Ban Ou, a village that boasts its cotton production and Ban Thapene. We then spend the remainder of the day at the beautiful Khouangsi Waterfalls. The water tumbling over multi tiered limestone formations into the cool and clear pool is ideal for anyone seeking an enjoyable escape when the heat becomes unbearable. Over in Luang Prabang. (B)

Day4.   Luang Prabang – Pak Ou Cave – Pakbeng
Heading out of the town, we take a cruise upstream on the Mekong River which also gives us a beautiful view of the tranquil countryside as well as an interesting visit to the mysterious of Pak Ou Caves, crammed with thousands of gold lacquered Buddha statues of various shapes and sizes. Along the way, we stop at the village of Ban Xanghai, where they make the local rice wine. We then continue our boat trip to the riverside town of Pakbeng. Overnight in Pakbeng. (B)

Day5.   Pakbeng – HoueiSay
After breakfast, we visit the local market where many hill tribe people converge from the outlying valleys and hillsides to sell their goods and buy provision. Upon leaving Pakbeng, we re-embark on our boat for the second leg of our journey toward HoueiSay, which is close to the famous Golden Triangle. The cruise is long, but the unequalled, rive rain scenery will make for an interesting day. Overnight in HoueiSay. (B)

Day6.   HoueiSay - Thailand
The surrounding areas of HoueiSay are home to a wide variety of ethnic minority groups. After an enjoyable visit to the Lu hill tribe people at Ban Namkeung, we take a short drive to the border gate for Chiang Khong, Thai land, End the tour at Lao-Thai border. (B)
