Culture & History

Belmond La Residence Phou Vao sits in the ancient town of Luang Prabang, a premier tourist destination for its rich history and culture that has been well preserved throughout the years. This former royal capital remains a hub for Buddhist learning and is home to thirty-three temples, as well as plenty of historical French architecture. Most sights to see here can be reached on foot, meaning the tourist trail that weaves throughout is sure to leave a lasting impression.

Hotel Experiences

Improve your culinary prowess during cookery classes with expert chefs, as they share the secrets used in preparing Laotian food and even have chance to sample your dishes in the restaurant. If you truly want to become a food connoisseur, embark on their mystery 'Dine Around' experience, where your very own tuk-tuk will whisk you between Luang Prabang's most exciting restaurants.


Couples will have plenty of golden moments at Belmond La Residence Phou Vao. For something truly romantic, board a traditional boat together and visit several monuments, before watching a breathtaking sunset from the top of Chompet Hill. Those seeking plenty of culture can take a short tuk-tuk journey into the charming town of Luang Prabang. A world away from the fast pace of bigger cities, visit temples, pagodas and the popular night market.
