Day 1: arrive at Luang Prabang

Introduce your kids to Buddhist culture with a visit to the temples Wat Xieng Thong and Wat Mai and observe monks in saffron robes going about their daily chores. See the former Royal Palace which is now the National Museum, and its halls containing rare religious and cultural artefacts. Take you marks, get set – race up the 328 steps to the top of Mount Phousi, for panoramic views of the city. Take part in a Baci ceremony where you will have white cotton strings ties around your wrist for good luck!
