Tour code: OV-LA0 002/CLS: LAOS - THE MYSTERY OF ANCIENT CAPITAL  
LAOS TOURS - (Vientiane, Luang Prabang)
 
Luang Prabang is the ancient capital of the Lane Zang (million elephants) Kingdom, dating back to the middle of the 12th Century. It sits at the intersection of the Mekong and Khan Rivers and is surrounded by green hills. In the glare of the mid-day sun, the city glows from the rays of its many golden temples. A climb to the top of Phousi Hill offers astonishing views over the vast and mostly uninhabited territories of northern Thailand and Laos; to experience sunset at Phousi Hill touches the soul. Luang Prabang is also home to the Palace of King Sisavang Vong, the last ruling king (1904-1909), and the Palace Museum houses some magnificent artifacts from his reign. Life in Luang Prabang is slow and gentle, and as you walk down the main boulevard, you don’t have to worry about cars, but rather, be sure to watch out for water buffalo and bicycles!
