Lao, biking tour This introduction to Laos features daily touring with a local host. Surrounded by thickly forested mountains and situated at the confluence of the Khan and Mekong rivers, Luang Prabang has a tranquil, old world charm rarely found in Asia today. The entire town was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995. See the region by minivan, riverboat, and on foot accompanied by your guide. Sample the local rice wine, see artists weave cotton and silk, witness the production of mulberry paper, explore caves and swim below waterfalls. Return each evening to the comfort and charm of our hotel.

Only available with the Air Inclusive Package.

Single Supplement: $245

Day 1 - Exploration of Luang Prabang / Pak Ou Caves

We visit the Pak Ou Caves today with our local guide. These caves contain many Buddha images of varying styles, ages and sizes. Later, explore the city of Ban Xang Hai, once a jar-making village and now busy with the brewing of rice whiskey. Continue on to see the production of mulberry paper and traditional hand-woven cotton and silk. 

Day 2 - Continued exploration of Luang Prabang

In the morning join our guide for a visit to a local market. Then, we visit the National Museum (the Royal Palace), a modest but graceful building that combines traditional Lao and French beaux-arts motifs. This turn of the century royal residence has been preserved as it was when the royal family last lived here. 

From Luang Prabang, we travel by boat with our guide to the small villages of Ban Muang Khai. Then, proceed by car to the Kuang Si Waterfall, located in a stunning natural setting. Turquoise pools are formed by the falls cascading over limestone formations.  After a swim in the clear water, we return to Luang Prabang and say farewell to our guide.

Day 3 - Depart for the U.S.

After breakfast, enjoy a final morning of guided exploration with a visit to the oldest living temple in the city, Wat Visoun, dating back to 1513. See Wat Xieng Thong, too, the jewel of all the monasteries and temples in the city. Its many buildings feature exquisite mosaic and gold-stenciled murals. 

You may store your luggage with the hotel when you check out of your room, and use the hotel facilities until it is time to depart for your flight home. Meet in the hotel lobby three hours prior to your flight and transfer to the Luang Prabang airport (approximately 20 minutes). You'll fly to Bangkok and connect with your flight to the U.S.

Day 4 - Arrive in the U.S.

You will arrive back in the United States today.
