The charming city of Luang Prabang is one of the most popular and atmospheric destinations to experience on the holidays to Laos. Even though most travelers only spend one or two days in Luang Prabang, there are plenty of reasons why this city deserves more attention. By touring this Northern Province at a slow pace it is much easier to appreciate its historic preservation zone. A great tour can include visiting sights like the fantastic Wat Xieng Thong Temple, the elegant Royal Palace Museum and the lively morning market. For the longer stay in the city it is also possible to see other sights such as the holy Pak Ou Caves, a trip up the Mekong River, or admire the major waterfalls at Tad Se and Kouang Si.
