Nearby Luang Prabang

The surrounding of Luang Prabang is filled with stunning mountains and lush vegetation. Popular spots nearby Luang Prabang to visit are the waterfalls, Kuang Si and Tad Sae and the caves Pak Ou. Others make the effort to go to the whiskey village or weaving villages. Close to the latter is the paper village. Be sure to check them out seeing as they are interesting places with tons of opportunity to hunt bargain handmade paper books or dazzling silk scarfs.

Across the Mekong from Luang Prabang is the cute village of Chompet. Take the ferry across from the boat landing not far from the night market off the road that goes along the Mekong (if you arrived by boat from Houxsay, it’s the same spot). Walk to the village or bring motorbikes or normal bike to make it there faster. On the other side of the Mekong, opposite inner city Luang Prabang, there is a nice trail that takes you on a hike to several different temples. You also get to see Luang Prabang from the other side which provides excellent photo opportunity.

Nearby inner city Luang Prabang, is the sport stadium. On the way to the airport, close to Golden temple on the top of the hill, before crossing the new bridge, you can turn right to get to the stadium. It has tennis courts, basketball courts and a shooting range. If you are lucky you can catch a game between the fantastic Lao female basketball team and any unlucky competitors, highly entertaining!

Nearby Luang Prabang, by Kuang Si Waterfalls is the bear rescue center. They have recently expanded their bear close off and now form an excellent attraction. Bears are being captured and held under gruesome conditions for various barbaric reasons and while you are there, remember to support the hard work they put in. If the western manager is present and not out on the field, he is usually happy to tell you more about their work.

If you have explore the inner city of Luang Prabang and covered most nearby spots, rent a motorbike, fill it up with gas (important) and drive in one direction for a while. You will be sure to come across breathtaking sights and find random restaurants to try weird food. Luang Prabang and its nearbys are gorgeous and easy to explore. Have fun!
