Start with a visit to the morning market to explore a distinctly Laos selection of goods. Next we’ll take a ride around the city center and peninsula stopping to view where the Nam Khan and Mekong Rivers meet and visit the famous Wat Xieng Thong Temple. From there we’ll wind our way through the backroads of Luang Prabang to see a special selection of city highlights and rarely visited cultural and craft-making sites for an intimate view of Laos life. Sites include a sample of Luang Prabang’s oldest and most beautiful temples, Laos traditional craft homes, traditional music centers, spirit house craftsmen, funeral pyres, and the UXO Museum.
We’ll top off the tour with a well-earned meal at a choice local noodle soup for lunch. Finally, we’ll make our way back to city center .You can expect to be back around 1:00 p.m. (times vary depending on biking speed).
The route is about 13 km (8 mi) on paved roads mostly flat with some low-grade hills. Guests should be comfortable riding throughout the city, crossing a wooden bridge, and riding in moderate traffic commonly found in Laos.
