Inside Asia Tours: Vietnam, Cambodia & Laos

Insider Experience: Laos' Heritage Revealed

Delve into the heart of Luang Prabang's distinguished heritage and be introduced to a number of different specialists on the town's history, culture and Buddhist background.

Laos' former royal capital, Luang Prabang is an enchanting and magical place. The whole town has been protected as a UNESCO World Heritage site, and with good reason. Around every corner is a photo opportunity; this astoundingly beautiful town is festooned with temples and shrines; colour and enigmatic sights. We will take you around this amazing destination, seeing the most memorable sites of the ancient town, but also giving you chance to get "beneath the surface" of Lao culture with exclusive access to a number of sites.

Pay a visit to the quaint Royal Palace, receive a blessing from the head monk of Luang Prabang's most beautiful temple, take a behind the scenes tour of the Buddhist Archive of Photography by the Director Dr. Khamvone Boulyaphonh, enjoy a cup of monastic tea on the archive's veranda and meet the founder of the Traditional Arts & Ethnology Centre for a private tour, providing an excellent chance to learn more about the country's diverse ethnic groups.
