Things to do in and arond Luang Prabang

by grant1313

My wife and I are spending 4 days in Luang Prabang in mid July. We would appreciate any advice on the "must see" sites in and around the town and any suggestions on day trips from there.
Thanks

I recommend that you take a boat trip on the Mekong for a couple of hours, the scenery is lovely and much of it untouched by roads, power lines etc. Luang Prabang is also just a nice place to meander around either on foot or bike which you can hire very cheaply, visiting temples or watching life on the river.

A couple of good day trips check out my LP pages for the name of the travel agent we used.It is located in the main street and does the same tours as the rest. A boat trip is a nice way to spend the day, down to the caves, local villages for wine tasting. There is also a nice waterfall were you can swim. I would also suggest you hire a bike for the day and ride around. LP is a lovely place to relax and unwind.

I spent 2.5 days in Luang Prabang. I like the atmosphere and the setup of the streets. Pakou didn't impress me, but since u have 4 days there, u have to visit there. Kuangsi is a great place to spend 1 afternoon there. I had only 1.5 hrs there and definitely it wasn't enuf. Watch a show at the theatre in the national museum and visit a few Wat. like wat phousi and wat xiengthong. Enjoy a day at spa too.

Hi
I think if you look around the forum you can find all the "must-see' sights in LP, such as the Kuangsi Waterfalls, the Pak Ou Caves, etc.
I was there in Feb this year and i'd gone out of town to an elephant camp with Tiger Trail for 2 days. It was an amazing experience living with the elephants and learning about them. If you have time, you should check it out : http://www.elephant-park-project.org/page.asp?id={62B73F32-5689-49D4-B76F-FF496E9EAE5D}

You should also take a walk across the rickety bridge to the paper-making village. Basically, I found LP a nice place to just wander around. Try the fresh fruit shakes (they're available everywhere), grilled sticky rice on skewers and grilled fish in the night market.

Travel Tips for Luang Prabang

Visa on arrival

by trisanna

Before you come to Laos, you should check with their entrance requirements to see if you can get a visa on arrival. To get a visa on arrival, your passport needs to have 6 months validity, 2 passport photos and $30 USD. You can also bring the equivalent amount in Thai Baht. The tourist visa is good for 15 days. If you want to stay longer in Laos, you should get a longer tourist visa at the Lao embassy-this usually is good for 30 days.
Be aware that there are only a few visa on arrival stations, so if you are coming by bus to Luang Prabang-you proabably should should get your visa before your arrival into the country. According to Laos' tourism website "The Department of Immigration in Vientiane will only extend tourist visas for one day. It is sometimes possible to get an extension for an additional 15 days by submitting an application through a tour agency. Foreigners who overstay in Laos risk arrest, and they will be fined $5 for each day upon departure."

For more information go the Lao Embassy's and lao tourism site website:

Monk morning parade

by strollingfish

It starts at 6 each morning when monks from various wats walk through streets collecting donations from faithfuls.

Actually I'm kinda hesitate to write this recommendation here. I got deeply impressed by a travelling tv program few years ago when there were many faithfuls donating and this's what inspired my first thought of visiting Luang Prabang. But today the sacred activity appears more to be an object under a visitor's camera. With the feeling of being disrespectfuI I was ashamed of shooting when they pass by. A faithful woman I saw finally was sitting on her knees. When the monks passed in front she put food donations one by one in the begging bowls and worship after each donation.

Rattan Ball - a game you see everywhere!

by thedouglas

We've seen young mostly males playing this game in other countries in SE Asia, but more so in Laos. It is played - you guessed it - with a woven rattan ball! We've mostly seen it played freestyle without any form of net - but the formal game has a net. Its a bit like foot volleyball, with a rattan ball! There is a significant amount of skill involved, and I can watch it for ages!

Good food.

by euzkadi

In the Pak Ou caves area, in the opossite bank of the river, there are some restaurants that serves good fish. Most of the visitors just visit the caves and returned to Luang Prabang, so there are few tourists. Great food and views.
