Serene, timeless Laos is one of Asia's most unvisited, unchanged countries.  This once-powerful kingdom known as Lan Xang (Million Elephants) was founded in the 14th century with the help of the Khmers, and went on to become one of the largest kingdoms in Southeast Asia until its demise in the late 19th century. It is a peaceful place, and the legendary hospitality, resilience and friendliness of the Lao people is much in evidence.  Laos is Old Asia preserved.

Luang Prabang was the capital of Lan Xang from 1353 until 1545, when it was moved to Vientiane. 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. Today Luang Prabang is a small, town on the confluence of the Mekong and Nam Khan Rivers surrounded by mountains – it is often described as one of the last true Shangri-Las in Asia.

This afternoon, we visit Wat Visoun, where you will see the famous Watermelon Stupa, shaped like the fruit it takes its name from. This temple was destroyed in 1887 by the invading Black Flags from China, and was restored in 1930 by Buddhist monks and local people. Then visit the Traditional Arts and Ethnology Centre (TAEC).  TAEC is a private museum dedicated to the ethic groups of Laos with the objective of helping locals and visitors learn about ethnic cultures and traditional arts (closed on Mondays).

Today’s highlight is a visit to Wat Xieng Thong, the most important Buddhist monastery in the country.  The main sanctuary represents the classic Luang Prabang temple architecture with roofs that sweep low to the ground. In the compound stand several small chapels housing bronze Buddha images, which were displayed in Paris in 1911. Near the east gate stands the royal funeral chapel. Inside you’ll see the impressive 40-foot high Royal funeral float and various funeral urns of several members of the former royal family. The gilt panel on the exterior of the chapel depicts a semi-erotic episode from the Hindu Ramayana.

In the late morning depart by road to the Khuang Si Waterfalls, a drive of about one hour. The waterfalls tumble over multi-tiered limestone formations into cool, clear pools, ideal for swimming and relaxing. On the way to the waterfalls, visit the Khmu minority village of Ban Thapaene.
