1. 6 AM – Catch the Sunrise at Phou Si Mountain
Make sure you get a good night sleep (we had a fantastic stay at the budget Apple Guest House, or a great higher end option is Burasari Heritage Luang Prabang), and you’ll need to wake up early to make the most of your day.
The view of the Luang Prabang sunrise is completely unobstructed when you reach the top of Phou Si Mountain. The climb is all steps, short but steep, with a few switchbacks. This climb will take anywhere from 10-15 minutes, and there’s a small entry fee of 10,000 kip when you reach the temple.
