This morning is the first day to visit the museum at the former Royal Palace Museum which was built between 1904 and 1905, during the French colonial times as a residence for King Sisavangvong. This fascinating museum features the original royal chambers, paintings depicting traditional Laotian life, a throne room, and four of the old royal cars, including an Easel.
Wat Xieng Thong which was built by King Sayasettha back in 1565, is also known as the most beautiful temple in Luang Prabang. From here continue to Wat Visoun temple which was built by King Visounnarath 500 years ago in 1513! After enjoying lunch we head to the incredibly scenic Kuang Xi Waterfall which is surrounded with turquoise blue pools and an ideal place for swimming, you will pass by the ‘Free the Bears Center’, a rescue center for endangered Asiatic black bears.
Back in Luang Prabang we will visit Wat Phousi to enjoy the rewarding view of the city.
