Get up early to observe the Buddhist Alms Giving Ceremony at 5:40 am if you like. You will continue to explore the open-air Morning Market in the old town. There are only a few large grocery stores here—instead, food is still produced by small farming families and villages and was brought to Luang Prabang for sale from the surrounding rural areas. Your guide will explain some seasonal vegetables and fruits to you and he will also guide you to pick some snacks. Return to the hotel for breakfast.
After breakfast, take a cultural excursion to Wat Sene. Located in the heart of Luang Prabang, it is the city's oldest temple maintaining many unique structures. Then visit the magnificent Wat Xieng Thong, the largest and most splendid one. Then board a boat upstream in the Mekong River and get a panoramic view of the tranquil countryside. Explore the sacred Pak Ou Caves, when disembarking, which are crammed with thousands of gold lacquered Buddha statues of various shapes and sizes.
Later you will be driven back to the town. Along the way, you will take a stopover at the small village of Ban Xanghai, where the local rice wine is very famous and Bang Xang Khong is famous for its traditional handicrafts.
In the afternoon, take an easy city tour of the impressive stupa of Wat Visoun and the shrine of Wat Aham and Wat Mai. Last, tour the Royal Palace Museum.
