After breakfast we take you on a discovery of Luang Prabang’s most charming charm architecture. Taking guidance from Mr Francis Engelmann’s book, published to commemorate the town’s 20th anniversary as a UNESCO World Heritage Site we’ll set out on foot for an off-the-beaten-track walking tour.
The route has been designed by connoisseurs of Luang Prabang who have been involved for many years in researching, documenting, and preserving the town’s traditions and treasures.
Observe Luang Prabang’s distinct architecture and let your guide regale you with stories about the houses you see and the places you pass.
After the tour, stroll along the main road and stop at the 3 Nagas by MGallery Hotel, bookended by mango trees and vintage cars. The 100-year-old Lao-style building brims with an old-world atmosphere. One of the houses, the Lamache, was once home to nobility families and later the appointed ice cream supplier to the royal family. Step into the hotel’s garden and enjoy a ‘Lao Tea Break’ with Lao coffee or herbal tea and traditional snacks or artisan ice cream.
In the evening, we’re taking you to the theatre!
The Ramayana is an ancient Indian epic poem that narrates the struggle of the divine prince Rama to rescue his wife Sita from the demon king Ravana. Watch a visualization of this epic saga combining dance and drama performed by the provincial government troupe of some 60 artists. The show takes place at the Luang Prabang Theatre which was reestablished in 2002 after a 1975 ban on the theatre and master artists.
The Theatre is located in the garden of the National Museum, formerly the Royal Palace.
Return to your hotel for dinner.
