Luang Prabang-the city of golden temples, they are its main attractions. There are a huge number and variety of them here: old and new, wooden and gold, temples-museums and acting, well, etc. most of them are located in the center of the city and you can see them all on foot. On the other side of the river in the village of Ban Xieng Maen there are also several temples, and they may seem even more interesting than those in the city. Entrance to the most popular temples for foreigners is paid – 20,000 Kip. There are no prohibitions on visiting, but you need to be appropriately dressed: shoulders and knees are closed, take off your shoes when entering. Temples work from early morning until dark, i.e. on average from 8 to 17 hours. See guide and ready route to the temples of Luang Prabang here...

The other most significant attraction is the hill and Temple of Phusi. From the top there is a wonderful view of the city, and all tourists rush here to meet the dawn or sunset. There are a couple of museums, and this, in fact, the variety of attractions of the city ends. But among the attractions or entertainment can still be attributed to the morning ceremony of giving food to the monks (or as they say "feeding the monks"), a night market, seeing off the sun on the river bank at sunset, a boat cruise along the river.

There are also some very beautiful and interesting sights around Luang Prabang. The most famous are the Pak Ou Buddha caves and Quang Si waterfall. If you have enough time, you can go on a one-or multi-day trekking tour with a guide in the surrounding area. During this tour you will wander through the jungle and mountains, see waterfalls and wonderful landscapes, visit the villages of local tribes. In general, this event is very worthwhile. You can buy such tours in hotels, travel agencies, or book excursions in Luang Prabang online.

Luang Prabang attractions

  • Donating food to monks

    Donation of food to monks in Luang Prabang

    Donation of food to monks (Alms Giving Ceremony) is a centuries-old tradition in Buddhism, when residents serve food to monks as a donation. This is something that you must see in Luang Prabang, and if you really want, you can even participate.

    The ceremony begins early in the morning, around 6 o'clock, and is accompanied by the ringing of bells. Monks walk along Sakkaline Road in front of Wat Sensoukarahm temple. You can photograph the ceremony, but it can only be done from afar. Do not get too close with the cameras, as this will be perceived as a very disrespectful action on your part. If you want to participate in the ceremony, you should know that you should do it on your knees or sitting; you should not touch the monks. It is best to serve fresh fruits or vegetables, rice, and not ready meals. The monks will accept cooked food, but with some reluctance, because the food may be stale (you did not prepare it yourself). In general, in order not to get into an awkward situation, it is best to agree to participate in the ceremony with someone from the locals. For example, in a hotel at the reception you can be offered to organize everything for a symbolic amount (prepare the right alms, instruct how to do it).

    🕐 Working hours: at 06: 00.

    🚶 Entrance fee / tickets price: free.

    🚶 How to get there: the main ceremony takes place on Sakkaline Road in front of Wat Sensoukarahm temple (Wat Sensoukarahm temple on map).

  • Luang Prabang night market

    Luang Prabang night market

    It is one of the main evening tourist attractions, and the real tourist heart of Luang Prabang. Almost the entire evening "tourist party", with rare exceptions, takes place here. It occupies almost the entire Sisavangvong Street. During the day it is an ordinary city street, but after dark (usually it is 18 hours) it is transformed: traders come out with their carts, and umbrellas and stalls grow like mushrooms. The street becomes completely pedestrian. The main range of goods here is still handicrafts made by the hands of local residents, but there are a lot of Chinese consumer goods issued for manual work, so be careful. After you finish shopping, you can inexpensively eat traditional and exotic Asian dishes. There are stalls with street fast food and desserts, restaurants and cafes in houses along the street, and street cafes with plastic tables and stools.
