Walking and Cycling Tour
Walking and Cycling Tour
A guided tour, either on foot or by bicycle, is one of the best ways to explore Luang Prabang. Amantaka’s private tours wind through the town’s quaint streets, past small stores where rice cakes and homemade paper products dry in the sun, taking in the most interesting and picturesque of the town’s 32 temples and more than 100 UNESCO-listed buildings.
Organic Farm Tour & Lao Cooking Class
Organic Farm Tour & Lao Cooking Class
Lao cuisine is a blend of Chinese, Thai and local influences with a strong emphasis on fresh herbs. Amantaka’s cooking classes include a visit to our organic farm, followed by the preparation of a selection of local dishes such as Laap Gai (a spicy chicken salad) at the local organic farm.
Alms Offering (Sai Bat)
Alms Offering (Sai Bat)

For decades the monks and novices of Luang Prabang have left their temples at first light and walked through the town accepting alms from local townsfolk. People gain merit by offering alms and the tradition is also a way for monks to maintain contact with their communities. This moving procession can be viewed daily at sunrise.

Mekong River Cruises
Mekong River Cruises
The Mekong River offers more opportunities for explorations from Pak Ou caves explorations to private sunset cruise. One of the most scenic places to enjoy the river is around Luang Prabang, and there is no better way to absorb the atmosphere than on one of Amantaka’s private boats.
Kuang Si Waterfalls and Bear Sanctuary
Kuang Si Waterfalls and Bear Sanctuary
Kuang Si is a majestic tiered waterfall that tumbles 100 metres over white limestone formations into turquoise pools. Stroll through the forest to the waterfall, cool off in the pools then visit the Bear Sanctuary – a haven for endangered Asiatic Black Bears.
L'Elephant Restaurant
L'Elephant Restaurant
Located in a typical 1960’s colonial building a stone’s throw from the Mekong, L’Elephant restaurant serves traditional and creative French and Lao cuisine made of local natural produce grown in their own garden.
