You are recommended to get up early, around 5.30 to 6.30am to visit Vat Nong temple. Here, you will witness The Tak Bat ceremony ("TAK BAT" means giving alms to monks). In this ceremony, from the early morning Thai people go to the temple and bring food with them. They are filling monks’ bowl with food such as rice, soft drinks, cakes and so on… This ceremony happens in peaceful and respectful atmosphere. That’s why we recommend that you should wear decent clothing when watching the rituals or if you want to save this moment, you should take photos from a distance to show your respect.
After having a breakfast, you will visit the Royal Palace, next is Vat Xieng Thong or Temple of the Royal City. Your next visit will be Wat Visoun – an unusual structure which represents the earliest Lao style.
Afterwards, you will be transfer to Khuangsy Waterfall- the biggest in the Luang Prabang area.
This is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Luang Prabang area with breathtaking cascades of water.
On the way to Khuangsy Waterfall, you will stop to visit some of the villages- where the older female villagers still dress in traditional costume. Then you will have a picnic lunch at the waterfall. If you want to swim, it is a great place because the waterfall scatters into many basins with deliciously cold water due to the shade given by the surrounding lush tropical jungle. You will return to Luang Prabang in the afternoon.
Then go to Phou Sy Mount where you also can have a nice panorama of the city.
Return to your hotel and free at your leisure.
