What To Expect

Luang Prabang
The best time to leave is in the morning. At around 8 am, a quick drive to the starting point marks the beginning of a sustainable continuation of this Luang Prabang exploration. Together with your English-speaking guide, saddling properly up for comfort before the morning ride signals the start of a leisurely ride through Luang Prabang. The tour heads first to the Wat Visoun. Dating back to the early sixteenth century, Wat Visoun is Luang Prabang's oldest temples which therefore demonstrate some of the earliest Luang Prabang temple architecture.

Wat Mai Suwannaphumaham
Our next stop on our bike ride is a temple of stature. Adorned in decoration and gold leaf, Wat Mai Suwannaphumaham is undoubtedly one of Luang Prabang most lavishly decorated temples, which is situated next to the Royal Palace and was used by Lao royalty. Since Wat Mai was one of the few temples in Luang Prabang to survive Chinese invaders in 1887, it became home for Laos' most highly respected Phra Bang Buddha image until it was moved to the Royal Palace Museum.

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Royal Palace Museum
Reaching our next stop, the Royal Palace Museum is done on foot while we leave our bikes securely locked up before moving on. Facing sacred Mount Phousi and on the banks of the Mekong River, the museum houses the most important treasures of Laos’ recent past. It is home to Laos' most sacred Buddha image, the Phra Bang, which is kept fittingly in an ornamented shrine.

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Wat Xiengthong
End your morning at Wat Xieng Thong. Sitting on Luang Prabang's peninsula is one of the city's most palatial decorated temples. The decoration is spread across its buildings leaving visitors with ample time to admire its interior and exterior. The cycling morning comes to an end with following in the spoked wheels of your guide back to the starting point and continues back to your accommodation in Luang Prabang.
