With wonderful adventure packages from The Grand Luang Prabang from now till 30 June 2017, you can experience authentic, off-the-beaten-path experiences in this tranquil UNESCO Heritage town.

Mekong Sunset

Sail down the Mekong River and watch the sun sink into the horizon. Make a pit-stop at the famed Pak Ou Caves; two caves cut into a limestone cliff. The caves hold hundreds of perfectly posed Buddha images of various styles and sizes. The Grand Luang Prabang which is situated along the Mekong River offers stunning views of the river and natural landscape.

Take up a cooking class at The Grand Luang Prabang with Chef and get hands-on learning for authentic local dishes. Dishes rotate and are dependent on the fresh produce available daily at the market.

Rise at dawn and receive blessings from the city’s Buddhist monks at the Alms Giving Ceremony. Clearly distinguished by their brightly colored Saffron robes, kneel at the Prince Petcharath Palace and give your alms in the form of handfuls of sticky rice to the monks. A spiritual ceremony that started in the 14th century, this age-old tradition is ever present today.
