Itinerary

Arrive in Luang Prabang

Welcome to Laos! Upon arrival in Luang Prabang, meet your local guide and transfer to hotel. Get settled and spend the rest of the day relaxing. In the early evening, enjoy a welcome dinner with your fellow travelers, begin your exploration of culinary delicacies of Laos, and have a trip briefing.

Rise for Yoga on the Mekong & Explore Luang Prabang

Ease into the day with an early-morning yoga session in Ock Pop Tok, with lovely views of the mighty Mekong River and mountains from your mat. After a healthy breakfast, discover Luang Prabang, one of Southeast Asia's most beautiful cities. Wander to the splendid Royal Palace, its most emblematic Buddhist temples — including Vat Visoun (the city's oldest temple), Vat Xieng Thong, and Vat Mai — the top of the Phousi Mountain, the city center, and the Hmong market. All the while, your guide share will share knowledge of the city's history, architecture, and culture.

Hike to Kuang Si Falls & Experience a Baci Ceremony

Return to Ock Pop Tok for another morning yoga session. Then drive to Ban Nong Heo, a charming traditional Khmu village. Take an easy guided hike in the countryside, passing through hill forests and plantations, with lovely views along the way. Arrive at Ban Thapene, lunch at a local restaurant, then enjoy free time by Kuang Si Falls. Come evening, partake in a traditional baci ceremony. One of the most popular traditions in Laos, a baci accompanies any important life event and attracts beneficial influences toward its participants.

Fly to Siem Reap & Receive Buddhist Blessings

Fly to Siem Reap, settle into the hotel, and enjoy free time. Then visit one of Siem Reap's pagodas or temples and experience an important Buddhist ceremony firsthand. Before the ceremony, learn about Buddhism in Cambodia, and monks' daily lives and disciplines. Then get blessed by monks who tie a piece of red Cambodian string around your wrist to represent the fading away of negative thoughts and deeds from your life—and to bring luck, health, and protection in return! After the ceremony, chat with the monks and exchange ideas.

Rise for Yoga & Explore Angkor Thom

Enjoy a yoga session in the serene garden of a charming local house, where a professional yoga teacher guides you through the rejuvenating poses. The practice of yoga in this relaxing setting leaves your mind peaceful and your body energetic for the rest of the day, which you spend exploring Angkor Thom and the atmospheric and root-covered Ta Prohm. After lunch in a local home and a soothing foot massage treatment, return to the hotel and spend the remainder of today resting, or enjoying the spa treatments available at the hotel. Dinner tonight is at your leisure.

Secret Temple Yoga & Explore Angkor Wat

Begin your immersion in the kingdom of wonders with a unique yoga session in an amazing environment — a secret temple. Then experience Angkor Wat, a UNESCO World Heritage Site whose extraordinary towers and bas-reliefs comprise one of the most astonishing monuments on earth. Explore this mysterious, magical place, then transfer to the hotel to rest or enjoy optional massage and spa treatments. Come evening, have a festive farewell dinner before enjoying Phare, an acrobatic performance that works with disadvantaged youth, giving them marketable skills in the arts. It's a great way to gain insight into Cambodian history and culture in an expressive way.

Depart from Siem Reap

Enjoy the morning at your leisure until you transfer to the Siem Reap airport for your departure flight.
