Heritage Tour of Luang Prabang by Rolls-Royce Tuk Tuk
In the morning your Rolls Royce electric tuk tuk will pick you up from your hotel to begin the tour of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Luang Prabang.
The first stop is at Wat Visoun (Wat Wisunalat), the oldest living temple in the city, dating back to 1513 and containing a collection of antique wooden Buddhas.
Visit the nearby Wat Aham before continuing to Wat Xieng Thong, the crowning jewel of all the monasteries and temples in the city. Its many ornate buildings feature exquisite mosaic and gold-stenciled murals.
From there, stroll down the main street of Luang Prabang. Stop at some of the many temples that line its sides, including Wat Sibounheuang, Wat Si Moungkhoun, Wat Sop and Wat Sene.
Continue to Ock Pop Tok for lunch at the Silk Road Café with views over the Mekong.
From here hop back into the tuk tuk and drive to the National Museum which once served as the Royal Palace. This modest but graceful building combines traditional Lao and French beaux-arts motifs and provides unique insights into the history of Laos. In one of the rooms is a collection of the palace’s most prized art. Among the jewels and priceless exhibits is the Phrabang, a beautiful Buddha cast from a gold, silver and bronze alloy.
After strolling around the museum visit Wat Mai before returning to your hotel.
