Luang Prabang

— 6 nights
Designated a World Heritage Site in 1995, Luang Prabang sits at the meeting point of two rivers and offers numerous opportunities for sailing, climbing, and exploring scenic caves and waterfalls.
Step out of Luang Prabang to go to Nong Khiaw and see 100 Waterfalls, which is approximately 52 minutes away. Spend the 15th (Mon) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's much more to do: admire the sheer force of Kuang Si Waterfall, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Wat Xiengthong, don't miss a visit to Vat Visounarath, and stop by Kopnoi Export Promotion Center.

To plan Luang Prabang vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

New York City, USA to Luang Prabang is an approximately 24-hour flight. You'll lose 12 hours traveling from New York City to Luang Prabang due to the time zone difference. Prepare for warmer weather when traveling from New York City in February: high temperatures in Luang Prabang hover around 86°F and lows are around 60°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Pakse.

Long overlooked by travelers due to its reputation as one of the world's poorest nations, Laos is drawing a growing number of visitors with its laid-back charm, natural beauty, and numerous archaeological sites and historic temples. Many visitors make the trip to Laos from nearby Thailand, combining the two neighboring countries into one memorable experience of Southeast Asia. Others focus their Laos vacation on the Mekong River, which serves as a major source of irrigation for local farms and represents a popular alternative for sightseeing by car. On top of the rich cultural heritage and impressive natural landscapes, its major treasure remains its people--friendly and devout Buddhists welcoming visitors with a genuine hospitality rarely felt in other parts of the world.
