Day1.    Chiangkhong – Pakbeng

On arrival at HoueiSay in Laos from Chiangkhong (Thailand), we embark on our traditional boat for cruising downstream on the Mekong River. This portion of the Mekong River is not too large but both banks of the rivers are bordered by very beautiful mountain ranges and green forest. The pace is very relaxed, a perfect way to observe rural life close up. Along the way, we stop over at Ban Houeilampen to visit the Hmong hill tripe people. They are very poor, but have an interesting culture and a colorful history, overnight in Pakbeng.(B)

There, we visit mysterious caves of Pak Ou, which are crammed with thousands of gold lacquered Buddha statues of various sizes. We continue our trip down to Luang Prabang. This former royal capital with its gleaming temple roofs, fading colonial architecture and stunning mountain backdrop retains a unique charm rarely found in all Asia. UNESCO recognized in 1985 as World Heritage Cultural City, perhaps it’s the best preserved traditional city in South East Asia”. There is little traffic on Luang Prabang roads and monks in orange robes scurry in all directions carrying umbrellas to shade themselves from the Sun. Observing sunset by the mount of Phousi.

Despite the move Luang Prabang reMained the seat of monarchical power and when the kingdom broke up in 1694, one of the deceased king's grandsons established a rival kingdom to those in Vientiane and Champassak. Though weakened, the Luang Prabang royalty endured until 1975, when after the reign of 63 kings it was formally dissolved.
