What to do in Luang Prabang
The kingdom of Luang Prabang tells a vivid story through its picturesque fusion of traditional Laotian style combined with the French colonial influence of the 19th and 20th centuries. From the colonnaded streets and meticulous architecture to the preserved natural environment and the lively night market, there is much to explore in this unique townscape that blends two cultural traditions. Explore the pagoda studded temples, climb Mount Phousi viewpoint, wake up and witness orange robed monks walk mindfully through the streets where locals and visitors offer early morning alms.
For those looking to reconnect with nature, you won’t be disappointed. Luang Prabang is famed for serene sceneries, including the Kuang Si waterfalls and Pak Ou caves. The former lets you enjoy a dip in the crystal-clear rock pools and climb the highest cascades for a picnic, while the latter is one of the most holy sites where thousands of Buddhas amassed in caverns over centuries.
Avani+ Luang Prabang Hotel is a heritage hideaway in the heart of the old town. From the most tranquil settings and thoughtful service to authentic experiences and the chance to just be, the hotel was constructed with everything you need in mind. An inviting swimming pool acts as the centrepiece of this heritage hideaway while open plan rooms with teak furnishing create a cozy yet upscale living space. Step beyond the French doors and be greeted by the shady terrace that overlooks the lush tropical garden. Cruise along the Mekong River backdropped by the rolling mountains and jungles while enjoying gourmet canapes and your favourite cocktail as the sun sets. Unwind at the Anantara Spa with a selection of signature journeys rooted in holistic practices and indigenous experiences.
