The leisurely way of life on the still waters of the Mekong makes Luang Prabang an oasis in the midst of Southeast Asian metropolises. At colorful river ports, the scent of lemongrass and ripe papaya fills the air, as lines of jostling carts take exotic spices and fresh fish to energetic open-air markets. On the streets, monks stroll in spotless flowing robes between cyclists and pedestrians. UNESCO protections — wisely — keep cars and trucks out of much of the central city. A journey to Laos will take you through gorgeous palaces, on Mekong river cruises, and to candle-lit dinners in crumbling French mansions, but above all, it will teach you to sit back and smile at the simple pleasures of life. Design your own tailormade Luang Prabang tour with Backyard’s local experts.

Absolutely! Wai Lin was amazing and helped me build my personalized itinerary from scratch with all the activities that I was most interested in. We worked together through the “What’s App” app. He was very responsive and readily available, energetic, supportive, and became a good friend in the process! I would highly recommend Backyard Travel to anyone looking to customize their own itinerary while having all hotels, guides, and transportation coordinated for them. Wai Lin was especially a pleasure to work with and was able to offer suggestions and advice while also being very open to my feedback and preferences. What an awesome trip it was!

The guide and the driver came to our hotel on time. We learnt a lot from them, including the history & the culture etc.Although the trip to Kong Lor cave is a long journey, it is comfortable within the car with air-conditioned, drinking water supply and our funny & joyful guide.

For what we received we were very disappointed with the cost. Yes, we visited what was listed but there were hiccups. Like, having to ask why we did not go to Plain of Jars 3 and then a hastily bit of organisation to actually go there later that afternoon. The reason – guide thought we were not interested. It was the best “Jars” site. That is what we wanted to see!! Lunch meals were very very average considering the amount of money the whole trip cost. Surely a cold soft drink and / or a beer could be offered as well, it wasn’t. There were also 2 other slight changes made to the itinerary to their benefit not ours.To end the trip, the guide said 4 times about arriving early in Vientiane – the reason, so he and the driver could get back home earlier than late. The trip should be about the customer not others. One hotel we stayed in for 2 nights was about 2km out of town. We wanted to have a look around but this distance proved prohibitive. While water was offered generously it was always hot and hence not drinkable for us. The 10 seater van was squashy for legroom unless you were the guide and sat next to the driver!

Kai was a fantastic guide, with a great personality and lots of knowledge. The tour was well organised, and we were very well looked after throughout our stay. Kai went out of his way to make sure we had the best experience in Luang Prabang. The trip was tailored to our preferences, we traveled in style and were able to eat and stay at fantastic locations.

What’s Special about Luang Prabang?

Backyard Travel’s tailormade Luang Prabang tours let you see the city through a local’s eyes. Beyond the city’s famed monuments, monasteries, and palaces, our travel specialists introduce you to a deep, soulful Luang Prabang, where residents celebrate ancient customs and carry out their lives with the carefree character of Laos.



CHARACTER

At the spiritual heart of Laos, Luang Prabang’s residents take the Buddhist virtues of contentment, humility, and charity seriously. Laotians are famous for their warm, receptive, and gentle company. Even vendors at tourist handicraft markets stand out for their soft salesmanship.



CLIMATE

Luang Prabang’s tropical climate is made slightly chillier by its elevated location. A light sweater will come in handy between November and February. The rest of the year is fairly hot, with the rainy season peaking in August.



ENTERTAINMENT

Despite tourist traffic, Luang Prabang has resisted the party vibe. Many bars and restaurants close before midnight to preserve the town’s sleepy feel, but options range from chic lounges to traditional ballet shows well worth an evening on the town.



CULTURE

From the Buddhist temples adorning the city to the spiced aromas, sumptuous silks, and delicate weavings of open markets, Luang Prabang streets are a main attraction. Wander at your leisure until you find your own perfect spot for a Lao coffee.



LANGUAGE

Most urban residents of Laos speak Lao, although minority languages can often be heard on the streets of Luang Prabang. Some residents also speak French, while English and Chinese are often spoken in the tourist trade.



HISTORY

Luang Prabang’s long history is recorded in the elaborate carvings of its palace pavilions and the austere stonework of its Buddhist stupas. Blending various cultural influences from local, regional, and colonial struggles, the city today considers itself Laos’s spiritual capital.
