LUANG PRABANG HERITAGE CITY

Luang Prabang, the ancient capital of Luang Prabang Province in northern Laos, lies in a valley at the confluence of the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers. Since the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) elected to inscribe the Town of Luang Prabang on the World Heritage List in 1995, The unique fusion of the traditional architectural and urban structures and those of the European colonial styles has fascinated tourists from all over the world and recognized as a world famous tourist destination.

 

THE FAMOUS HOLY SITES PAK OU CAVES

The boat trip takes us north to the famous Pak Ou Cave, well known as Tham Ting or Ting Cave, located on the riverbank, about 25km from Luang Prabang. The cave is very beautiful and filled with thousands of Buddha images and has long served as a pilgrimage site for all kinds of people, including members of the former royal family.
