Massage and spas
Soothe those aching muscles
What we say:
Luang Prabang isn't exactly a strenuous place to spend a holiday, but we think everyone deserves a little R&R.
Thankfully, spas and massage therapists can be found scattered throughout town, most notably on Sisavangvong Road and near the riverfront.
Not quite the same as Thai massage, Lao massage seems to focus more on pressure points and is more therapeutic than relaxing. For a chill-out massage, opt for the oil. Other options include body scrubs, herbal steam baths and facial treatments.
A one-hour massage starts from 40,000 kip. A top option is try the Red Cross Herbal Sauna and Massage across from Wat Visoun.
