Port of Luang Prabang

Discover dozens of Buddhist temples, vibrant markets and colorful colonial architecture in the laidback village of Luang Prabang. This lush port in north-central Laos rests at the confluence of the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers. Pandaw operates a handful of Luang Prabang cruises, calling here on select Mekong itineraries.

Don't miss Golden City Temple (Wat Xieng Thong), a gilded 16th-century temple and one of the most famous in the village. Farther afield, Kuang Si Falls is a spectacular collection of waterfalls and vivid turquoise pools a short drive from Luang Prabang; this natural wonder nestled deep in the jungle is well worth the trip.
