Itinerary

Day1.   Chiangkhong – Pakbeng (-/L/D)

On arrival at HoueiSay in Laos from Chiangkhong (Thailand), we embark on our boat for cruising downstream on the Mekong River. This portion of the Mekong River is not too large but both banks

of the rivers are bordered by very beautiful mountain ranges and green forest. The pace is very relaxed, a perfect way to observe rural life close up. Along the way, we stop over at Ban Houeilampen to visit the Hmong hill tripe people. They are very poor, but have an interesting culture and a colorful history, overnight in Pakbeng.

 

Day2.   Pakbeng – Oudomxay - Nongkhoiw (B/L/D)

Early morning upon leaving Pakbeng, we visit the hill tribe market; we then begin our expedition, venturing into northern Laos mountain remote area. The roads conditions are good enough to explore; however the verdant and rugged mountain scenery combined with the colorful local population makes for an unforgettable experience. Today, we drive through the area, home to various ethnic minority groups including the Hmong, Khmu, Akha and Taidam. The journey leads us through the scenic area to Nongkhoiw. Here is a chance to visit Hmong at Ban Jarong, Ban Songja, Khmu hill tribe people before reach Nongkhoiw by late afternoon. Overnight in Nongkhoiw.

 

Day3.   Nongkhoiw – Luang Prabang (B/L/-)

Breakfast, we board a traditional boat down stream on Nam Ou River, leisurely on peaceful river and visit some timeless villages starting from Nongkhoiw. Along the way we stop to visit some weaving village of Khmu. We then continue our journey down to the mount of Pak Ou, where Nam Ou River meets with Mekong River. There, we visit mysterious caves of Pak Ou, which are crammed with thousands of gold lacquered Buddha statues of various sizes. We continue our trip down to Luang Prabang. This former royal capital with its gleaming temple roofs, fading colonial architecture and stunning mountain backdrop retains a unique charm rarely found in all Asia. UNESCO recognized in 1985 as World Heritage Cultural City, perhaps it’s the best preserved traditional city in South East Asia”. There is little traffic on Luang Prabang roads and monks in orange robes scurry in all directions carrying umbrellas to shade themselves from the Sun. Observing sunset by the mount of Phousi. From there, we explore Street Night Bazaar, where you can find the lovely collection and handmade textile by local and hill tribe people surrounding Luang Prabang. Overnight in Luang Prabang.

 

Day4.   Luang Prabang – City Tours (B/-/-)

Early this morning you may want to rise 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.

Breakfast, we are exploring this charming city of UNESCO world heritage cultural city.  From 1353 until 1545 it was the capital of Lane Xang before power was transferred to Vientiane. Despite the move Luang Prabang reMained the seat of monarchical power and when the kingdom broke up in 1694, one of the deceased king's grandsons established a rival kingdom to those in Vientiane and Champassak. Though weakened, the Luang Prabang royalty endured until 1975, when after the reign of 63 kings it was formally dissolved. You spend the day exploring the temples and sites in what is called one of the last Shangri-La’s of Southeast Asia. You will visit Wat Xiang Thong, the most important Buddhist monastery in the country, Wat Visoun, Wat Khili and Wat Mai. Later, visit the former Royal Palace, now a National Museum where you will find ornate, gilded and brocaded reception rooms, as well as Buddha and spectacular artifacts including the Prabang, a large holy image, which was given in the 14th century by the Khmers to King Fa Ngum. At sunset climb the nearby temple-topped hill of Phousi where you'll catch a lovely view out over the town and the river. From there, we explore Street Night Bazaar, where you can find the lovely collection and handmade textile by local and hill tribe people surrounding Luang Prabang.  Overnight in Luang Prabang

 

Day5.   Luang Prabang – Vang Vieng (B/-/-)

An early morning breakfast and departure to Vang Vieng. The journey is strenuous as we drive along one of the most scenic but rough routes in the whole of Asia.  We arrive in Vang Vieng, a small town which is located on a bend in the Nam Song River. This tranquil town is rapidly developed with the advent of tourist, but the beautiful scenery with a mixture of quiet water and limestone outcrops is unchanged for century. We visit Tham Hoy Cave and surrounding village of Khmu and Hmong hill tribe minorities, where we call another home to colorful ethnic minorities. Overnight in Vang Vieng.
