    Mount Phousi

    Mount Phousi

    To Do

    The stunning view of sunrise and sunset that it provides makes the hike up Mount Phousi well worth the effort. It reportedly towers over Luang Prabang with a height of more than 100 metres, and is home to a few famous structures, such as Wat Chomsi and Wat Tham Phousi. Do not be surprised to find people releasing caged birds at its peak, either, as Laotians believe that this gesture brings good fortune.

    Sometimes referred to as Wat Visounnarat, Wat Wisunalat was constructed in 1512, making it one of Luang Prabang’s oldest temples. Its defining trait is That Pathum, a massive stupa that incorporates unique Singhalese elements of design. Although it has been rebuilt over the years on numerous occasions, it still functions today as an active institution of Buddhism, with a large collection of Buddhist imagery and artefacts.

  • Wat Umong

    Wat Umong

    To See

    Wat Umong is certainly an aptly named temple, as ‘Umong’ is the Thai term for ‘tunnels’—a major component of this place of worship. This feature makes it unique amongst the many temples in Chiang Mai, and is complemented by the complex’s other highlights, such as a replica of a historical Buddhist relic called the ‘Pillars of Ashoka’.

  • Cheun Yaw

    Cheun Yaw

    To Eat

    Cheun yaw is a snack of sorts that Laotians can be seen eating regularly, as it is both delicious and easy to eat. These deep-fried spring rolls contain flavourful servings of fresh vegetables and meat, and are ideally eaten with a chilli-infused peanut dipping sauce. Variations of this snack include a version that is not deep-fried (yall dib), which is better for those who’d like something a little healthier to munch on.

  • Manukan Island

    Manukan Island

    To Do

    A boat ride of about 15 to 20 minutes is all it takes to get from Kota Kinabalu town to Manukan Island, one of Sabah’s prime jewels. The island is especially famous amongst locals for its coral reefs and beautiful beaches, and this is evident from the large number of guests who visit the island just to lie on its stretches of fluffy sand or to go snorkelling.
