Take the short afternoon flight to Xieng khouang, which was devastated by American bombing between 1964 and 1973. Upon arrival, visit the Plain of Jars, an impressive archaeological site containing hundreds of large stone jars littered all over the plateau. Then explore the old capital of Muang Khoun Province and the nearby villages, home to the Hmong hill tribe and Tai Dam people who have an interesting local culture and a colorful history. Overnight in Phonsavanh.

Day 3: Xiengkhouang - Luang Prabang ( by road ) ( B )

Early morning, we visit the Central Market of Phonsavanh to watch the different hilltribe people barter and exchange merchandises. We then head out towards Luang Prabang. Enroute we stop off to see the Buddha images in Thampra, a site more than 200 years old, and various Hmong and hilltribe minority villages along the way. After a photo stop, we continue driving uphill, enjoying the splendid natural scenery of the mountains, the forest and landscape.
The journey will take us over mountainous regions until we approach Luang Prabang, one of the most beautiful traditional towns in Asia.

After checking into your hotel, if time permits, we visit the impressive stupa of Wat Visoun and the shrines of Wat Aham and Wat Mai; we then climb up to the top of Mount Phousi to explore the sacred, gilded stupa as well as capture a beautiful view of the city and the Mekong River at sunset. From there, we visit the Night Market, where you can browse a lovely selection of handmade textiles, made by the local people and hilltribe people surrounding Luang Prabang. Overnight at Luang Prabang

Day 4: Luang Prabang - Pak Ou cave ( B )

Today, we enjoy a short-guided tour seeing the city's oldest temples of Wat Sene and the magnificent Wat Xiengthong with its roofs sweeping low to the ground, which represents classical Laotian architecture. We then embark on a cruise upstream on the Mekong River, which gives us a breathtaking view of the tranquil countryside as well as exploring the mysterious Pak Ou Caves, two linked caves crammed with thousands of gold lacquered Buddha statues of various shapes and sizes left by devoted pilgrims. Along the way, we will stop at the village of Ban Xanghai, where local rice wine is produced. On return, we take a short drive to another small village Ban Phanom, which is famous for its hand weaving. Overnight in Luang Prabang

Day 5: Luang Prabang - Departure ( B )

After breakfast, we visit the National Museum (closed Tuesdays) at the former Royal Palace.
