AirAsia is now operating direct flights from Kuala Lumpur to the UNESCO Heritage City of Luang Prabang, Laos with four times weekly flights starting 21 November 2016. This is the 70th intra-Asean route connecting all ten Asean Countries, as well as the airline’s fourth route into Laos after Kuala Lumpur-Vientiane, Bangkok-Vientiane and Bangkok-Luang Prabang.
Luang Prabang, the ancient capital of Luang Prabang Province in northern Laos, lies in a valley at the confluence of the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers. Inhabited for thousands of years, it was the royal capital of the country until 1975. It’s known for its many Buddhist temples, including the gilded Wat Xieng Thong, dating to the 16th century, and Wat Mai, once the residence of the head of Laotian Buddhism
Luang Prabang is located approximately 300km north of Vientiane. Visitors can see the ‘Tree of Life’ mosaic set at Wat Xieng Thong, partake in the traditional alms giving with the locals, swim in the azure pool at the Kuang Si Waterfalls and savour Khao Soi – a local noodle soup dish that can be found at food stalls running along Luang Prabang streets.
