Luang Prabang is rich in history and natural beauty, a trek, mountain bike ride or some gentle kayaking gives you the chance to really discover the landscape and warm friendly people that live in and around this celebrated UNESCO world heritage site. Three ethnic tribes located at villages in the surrounding mountains of Luang Prabang welcome visitors to experience their daily lives, whether you opt to visit them via kayak in their water homes on stilts, or opt for a trek to their mountain-top village with the option of staying with them for the night. Along the way you’ll discover elephant sanctuaries and inviting waterfalls all framed by spectacular countryside of rice fields, striking mountain ranges and dense tropical jungle.
When you’ve ticked off the exploring boxes, you’ll find plenty of places to relax and unwind in Luang Prabang. Spend the day at one of the many spas and treat yourself to a traditional massage, which us even more enjoyable post trek. If you fancy something a little more strenuous then head to the Luang Prabang golf course where you can hire everything you need for a round then finish off your day with a late-night local beer at the bowling alley.
