Less touristy tour of Luang Prabang

For those seeking spiritual enlightenment, a new excursion designed by Asian Trails Laos provides a deeper insight into the country’s Buddhist traditions.

Guests are taken by boat from Luang Prabang to remote communities near the Mekong River. The full-day tour involves a visit to a temple to receive a blessing from resident monks and exploration of religious sites rarely visited by tour groups, with plenty of time to absorb the serenity and solitude. The focus is on lesser-known sites in this UNESCO listed destination, with stops at Ban Xieng Mene, a sleepy waterside village; and Wat Chomphet, a shrine with spectacular views over Luang Prabang, rolling hills and the mighty Mekong.

This inspirational excursion provides an alternative view of the heritage town.
