Things to do in Luang Prabang

A city where many come to wander and find themselves, Luang Prabang has a wealth of attractions to offer, including countless UNESCO temples, natural attractions such as the Khuangxi waterfalls and Pak Ou Caves. Many fall in love with the place and travelers routinely spend up to 2 weeks in this charming little city. Yet few have a chance to connect with the real charming ones, the local people hidden outside the main peninsula in the little villages beyond the tourist-filled city. Backstreet Academy helps you to find the most interesting experiences and things to do in Luang Prabang and ensures that you have an unforgettable experience in this beautiful town, coupled with the authenticity of being hosted by a local in his house or his workshop. Every single activity featured here is hosted by a local Laotian who has spent years perfecting his or her craft.
