    Constructed at the start of the 20th century, the Royal Palace of Luang Prabang was home to the royal family of Laos during its French colonial era. Despite being built under the reign of a foreign power, the Royal Palace owes all of its architectural beauty and design to the traditional Indo-Chinese palatial structures.

  • Kuang Si Falls

    Located 30 km (18 miles) south of Luang Prabang, Kuang Si Falls makes a good day trip to explore nature in the countryside. The falls, the biggest in the Luang Prabang area, are three-tiered, with the biggest fall 60 meters (200 feet) high. Getting to Kuang Si Falls involves walking a maintained trail. Once there, visitors can cool down with a dip in turquoise lagoons as they cascade along the way. Also, energetic visitors can climb to the top for a look down at the falls. The way is slippery, so proper footwear is essential. The falls are a good place to escape city heat since temperatures are cooler here.

  • Mount Phousi

    Mount Phousi, located inside the city of Luang Prabang, isn’t really a mountain: It’s a 140-meter (450-foot) high hill that is home to several Buddhist shrines and temples. It’s a good place to watch the sun rise or set over this Lao city. Mount Phousi is between the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers. Travelers must climb several hundred steps to reach the top but the climb is manageable for most people if they take it slow and easy. It’s recommended visitors take different routes up and down the hill. Notable temples are Wat Tham Phousi with its big reclining Buddha and Wat Chomsi at the summit.

  • Tad Sae Waterfalls

    Tad Sae Waterfalls doesn’t get as many visitors as other Laotian waterfalls, though it’s quite popular with locals. It’s a bit harder to get to, involving a tuk-tuk to the Nam Khan River and then a 10-minute boat ride. The main reason people visit the cascading waterfalls is for the swimming; it’s nicer than other waterfalls, plus offers an opportunity to swim with elephants. Tad Sae Waterfalls, located about 19 km (12 miles) from Luang Prabang, is best visited in the rainy season (August to November) when the water is high; other times the falls are non-existent. Modest swimwear is recommended; locals swim fully clothed.

  • Pak Ou Caves

    Pak means mouth and the two caves at the mouth of the Ou River are Tham Ting and Tham Theung. The caves have been spiritual places for centuries and were thought to be occupied by spirits by the animists in the region even before Buddhists began bringing wooden Buddha statues to the cave. Bring a headlamp and enjoy the river views on the way up and down the Mekong.

  • Kuang Si Butterfly Park
