This morning, see some of Luang Prabang’s most important temples, including Wat Visoun, home of the ‘Watermelon Stupa’, and Wat Xieng Thong known for its expansive Tree of Life mural depicting the Buddhist story. Join a Hmong Batik Class and create a wax resist, Hmong style design on hand-loomed hemp. Due to time constraints, we cannot complete the dyeing process, but the natural hemp offers a beautiful product. Later, stroll the quaint streets and join in a game of petanque – someone is always willing to show you how to play, and it is a fun way to get to know the local people. Close out your day at Garavek show. In this English language stage show, the traditional storytelling art of garavek is the medium, while the theme is Luang Prabang itself. In a mixture of history and popular myth, hear the story of this town to the accompaniment of the khene, a handmade bamboo mouth organ, and the quintessential Lao folk instrument.
