Start a day like a local

Rise before the dawn to experience a ritual unique to Luang Prabang. This sacred city and UNESCO World Heritage Site rings its bells early in the morning to call the ancient Buddhist ceremony Tak Bat.

Starting at 4:45 am, transfer by tuk-tuk to the boat pier to cruise across the Mekong River to Ban Xieng Mene. Here, get a chance to experience one of Laos’s most sacred rituals – alms-giving and receiving blessings from the chanting monks in return. Afterward, continue your morning with a stroll through lush green gardens to Wat Long Khoun, to the base of Wat Chomphet. Climb up 123 steps to panoramic views of the Mekong River and Mount Phousi.

Finish your trip with a visit to the morning market along the river by boat. Join the locals for a delicious breakfast before heading back to your hotel.
