We continue to Wat Xien Thong, probably the most beautiful monastery in Luang Prabang, and the National Museum (Royal Palace). The former Royal Palace became a National Museum in 1975, where you can find some rooms that have been preserved the way the royal family last used them (closed on Tuesdays). After that, you can still see Wat Mai. From Luang Prabang, you will later go to the Kuang Si waterfalls, whose sinter terraces form a perfect natural backdrop.

Their goal is the Pak Ou caves, which are uniquely populated with Buddha images of all kinds. As you continue, you will stop at Ban Xang Hai village, which is known for its Lao Lao (rice whisky). You will then visit Ban Muang Keo with its silk weaving and rice schnapps distillery, as well as the weaving village of Ban Xang Khong. Here you can follow the production of traditionally hand-woven cotton and silk, as well as the production of mulberry paper. Back in Luang Prabang, climb the 100m high temple mount Phou Si in the middle of the city and visit the small temple complex on top of it.

Day 5

Day 5: Scenic drive from Luang Prabang to the mysterious Plain of Clay Jars (B)

In the morning, take a leisurely trip on a mountain road with a wonderful view of forested mountains, green valleys and rock formations. The trip offers many opportunities for photo stops and visits to mountain peoples settlements. Upon arrival, a visit to the “level of clay jugs”, a collection of mysterious huge stone vessels. The jugs, whose origin and use are unknown, are sometimes over 3 m high and weigh up to 6 tons. The “Plains of Clay Jugs” is one of the most fascinating sights in the country.

You'll visit That Luang, a golden stupa and one of the country's most important national monuments, and Wat Phra Keo, the former royal palace, today a museum with the finest examples of Buddhist sculpture. The massive Wat Sisaket Patuxai is reminiscent of the Arc de triumphs in Paris. Following this, a visit to a hospital, which is still dedicated to treating people who were victims of mines and cluster bombs originating from the Vietnam War. The so-called “cluster bombs”, which encourage children to play due to their shape, are particularly dangerous. The afternoon is free. Overnight in Vientiane including breakfast the next morning.
