At the break of dawn, meet your guide and choose to join an almsgiving session and feed hundreds of Buddhist monks after their early morning prayers. If you prefer to see a market instead, go for a stroll through a busy morning market with fresh produce and textiles for sale. After a stop at your hotel for breakfast, visit the National Museum and its historical exhibitions of gamelan instruments and the Royal Palace car collection.
After a refreshing Lao lunch at a local restaurant, admire the lotus-shaped stupa at Wat Wisunarat, designed by the wife of King Wisunarat, and then spot the largest Buddhist temple in Luang Prabang—Wat Mai. Marvel at the low, sweeping roof of Wat Xieng Thong and its graceful architecture before you climb up 328 steps to Mount Phou Si for an impressive view of Luang Prabang.
