龍坡邦自由行攻略

  1. 龍坡邦自由行攻略
  2. 琅多寮國五樣必做事

自從寮國在八十年代開放給遊客後,龍坡邦的美景和風光令它成為東南亞的旅遊熱點之一。在1995年被列為世界文化遺產,龍坡邦有歷史悠久的寺廟,法式建築,和自然景觀。在湄公河的岸邊,龍坡邦有著清邁的魅力之餘又有比較輕鬆的氛圍。以下我就為你介紹一下龍坡邦必去的景點:

龍坡邦景點

關西瀑布 Kuang Si Waterfalls

主瀑布

就起龍坡邦什至是整個寮國就有名的景點就要數關西瀑布。簡直就是亞洲的十六個湖,關西瀑布由主瀑布起由好幾個小瀑布和湖組成,像是一連串的石灰石級。要注意不是每一個小湖都開始讓遊客游泳,請專重環境保護和安全指示。

想到關西瀑布先會穿過一個黑熊救援中心,是照顧和保護當地黑熊的地方。接著的一路都是上斜的泥路和木樓梯,在雨季參觀的朋友要小心,因為水位可能會上升並淹沒部份路。雖然不是很難行走,可是還是要穿合運動鞋比較好。

主瀑布大概是在第五個小湖後,你可以在木橋上去正面拍照。在主瀑布的兩邊有條環形登山徑到瀑布上遊。

上遊景色

上山只要十多分鐘,不過難度高又十分斜,想上去的話真的要小心。上遊河邊有一個小咖啡店,聽說你可以在那裡租一個小竹筏上逆流一看。

我是在主路上再往前走才拍到

在瀑布上其實不太看到瀑布本身,所以如果不喜歡登山又或是累了也不用勉強上去。不過時間充足的話可以一路走到一個洞穴,不過我就到另一邊下山了。

可跳水的位也是拍照位

關西瀑布游泳最好的地方是在中間的一個較大的湖。它那水的顏色真的是超夢幻!在岸邊也有一個小木台(基本上是一條較粗並被固定的樹支)讓遊客跳水。不過水真的不深,只有一米五多一點的路也可以站著。湖中也有很多魚,我一下水就感覺到有魚在我腳邊。

如果想拍照的話在這個湖對上的一個雖然不可以游泳,不過你可以走下去一點點拍照。kuang si waterfall luang prabang laos - laugh travel eat

龍坡邦夜市

 

 

 

 

night market luang prabang laos - laugh travel eat
作為市集愛好者,我當然不會錯過龍坡邦的夜市。老實說,對離泰國這麼近的龍坡邦我原本對它賣的東西不帶太大期望。龍坡邦的夜市是在古城中的大街上進行。不過我很高興的告訴你們龍坡邦有不少特色商品賣,很多我都只是在少數曼谷店看到而且它們在那的價錢還至少翻三倍。最主要的都是當地的紡織品,主要是以大大小小的袋和坐墊套賣。是當地生產的作品的店都會有一個龍坡邦手工貼紙,可以留意一下。想找東南亞必有的大象褲等也可以找到。

很美的布~

以下是我在2018年7月買的價錢:

中型小斜包 35-50k

小收納包 18-25k

坐墊套 60-40k,同行的朋友買四個我們就壓價壓到40k~

 

龍坡邦早市

早市賣的食材

除了夜市以外還有當地人多的早市,在夜市對上近河的街上進行。大多攤擋都是賣蔬果食物,不過也有一些賣布料的。我是在早上八時前到的,除了我以外只是見到幾個遊客。我看到有不少當地人都在布擋買布,所以也去看看。當時只剩下150k的我在問了幾間店之後只是賣到了一個用當地靛藍染和白色的大披肩。

早上多當地人也在買

想買布的話較簡單的編織圖案由110k開始,不過我喜歡的款式都要200k,所以我最後只是買了披肩。再貴的布還有到400k,所以不要以為在龍坡邦的手工物都很便宜。

 

普西山 Phou Si Mountain

湄公河日落的美景

龍坡邦古城中的最高點,普因山高為一百米也是看日落的最好選擇,可以看到整個城市,湄公河和南鳥河。在山頂上也有兩個寺廟,不過大多數遊客都是為了看風景登山。

山頂上的寺廟

上山的路不長也不難,都是樓梯,不過一開始到買門票的那條樓梯可是特別的斜。在山頂上的位置其實不多,雖然我去的時候是在淡季,可是都差不多站滿了人。

拍照位

最受歡迎的可是在圍欄外的小石群—大家都很有禮貌的排隊上去拍照。

入場費:20k

 

龍坡邦皇宮/國家博物館

我只能在遠處拍照

曾經的龍坡邦皇宮現在為國家博物館。建於二十世紀初,它是寮國最後兩位皇帝的家,混合了寮國和法式的建築風格。它每星期二休館,很不幸的我就是在星期二去,所以沒有機會入內。

Haw Pha Bang temple luang prabang laos - laugh travel eat
的確很華麗吧?

不過就算是星期二你也可以欣賞在皇宮右邊的霍柏拉邦寺。不難想像一開始可能有人會把它以為是皇宮,畢竟那金和綠的外觀真的太華麗了。有著一條白色樓梯和被四頭納迦守護著,單是氣勢就很不一般。

入場費:30k kip

開放時間: 08:00am – 11:30am and 13:00pm – 15:30pm(星期四早關15:00pm) 星期日休息。

不過我當時真的是星期二去沒有開

 

施捨儀式

僧人是一群群的來

施捨儀式是龍坡邦的傳統活動,每天在清晨贈食物給當地僧人,通常以糯米飯為主。施者會在Sakkaline Road坐著等僧人走過。原意是讓人以給僧人住家飯菜致敬,不過現在也有遊客參與,在路邊可以以10k價錢買糯米飯。大部分當地人去施捨時都會穿上傳統服裝。

大家都在待

儀式在早上5:30開始,大概半小時完。雖然傳統還在,可是現在基本上都成為一個拍照機會,很多去施捨的人都是一團團去,有專人為他們拍照。我對起件事也沒有太大反感,可是有些人差不多站到僧人的路上,那就真的有點過分。我們也有見到僧人因為收得太多把一些食物丟掉。後來有當地人告訴我們大多餘下的食物都會給窮人。

貼士:到Wat Sensoukaram外觀賞拍照最好

 

龍坡邦寺廟

作為世界文化遺產的龍坡邦當然少不了有很多寺廟。以下是我在古城區內找到的:

香通寺 Wat Xiengthong

龍坡邦最有名的寺廟,如果你只可以去一個寺那就一定要去香通寺。在湄公河的岸邊,它在十六世紀中落成,一直到七十年代也是皇家寺廟。香通寺內有大大小小二十多個建築,最有代表性的就是有著紅色外牆和拼花工藝的祈禱寺。不可以錯過的還有在1880年加建的圖書館,主廟,和在一角的葬禮寺。

Vat Nong Sikhounmuang

vat nong sikhounmuang luang prabang laos - laugh travel eat有著紅金的外牆,這個寺廟的守護神為四頭納迦,整體建築風格以泰式為主,有著彩色的石磚。

 

Wat Sensoukharam

在施捨儀式提到的寺廟,它也是以紅金色為主。在1714年落成,聽說它的名字源於一個100,000kip捐款,不過也可能是指廟內有100,000寶物或是由100,000來自湄公河的石而建。

 

Wat Xieng Muan

Close up!

有著彩繪的外牆,建於十六世紀的它可是區內最古老的寺廟之一。由當地和緬甸的畫家一合作以圖細說佛祖的生平故事。

 

Wat Choumkhong

wat choumkhong luang prabang laos - laugh travel eat在Wat Xieng Muan旁,Wat Choumkhong與眾不同的地方在於它的守護神。大多數寺廟都是由納迦或是大象守護,可是它是由中國將軍來當守護神。這個寺廟也是一個年輕僧人的習中地,都可以在廟的花園找到他們。

 

Wat Mai

WAT MAI luang prabang laos - laugh travel eat在古城入口的Wat Mai的特色在於它的四層屋頂。建於1796年,它在當地被稱為新廟,在十九世紀時翻新。在主廟牆上的畫面都是有關佛祖前世的故事。

入場費: 10k

開放時間 8:00 – 17:00

湄公河船河和洞穴

mekong river luang prabang laos - laugh travel eat我在龍坡邦的時間不夠我去河上參觀,不過在湄公河上遊船河看日落還有去看洞穴也是龍坡邦最受歡迎的活動之一。

 

龍坡邦交通出入

龍坡邦的古城區不大,如果酒店住宿是在區內那步行就可以了。遠一點的酒店很多時候也會提供單車租用,要不然還有Tuk Tuk,也算得上是當地的計程車。再遠一點的酒店大多都會有穿梭巴士,龍坡邦的交通都很暢通,車程最多十分鐘左右就會到。

 

龍坡邦旅遊季

french architecture luang prabang laos - laugh travel eat龍坡邦的淡季也是它的雨季,由四月到九月。我是在七月去的,天色大多是暗點也很潮濕,可是雨大多都是在下午下一兩場大的就沒有了。龍坡邦年中有不少節日,像是四月的潑水節,八月的龍舟競渡,十二月的新年和少數民旅慶典等。

 

龍坡邦去多少天?

如果有心的話,兩天都可以看完所有最有名的景點。不過我建議三至四天最好。有時間的也可以北上到琅多或是參加編織,種田等的活動。

 

龍坡邦酒店

hotel indigo luang prabang laos - laugh travel eat
Hotel Indigo

龍坡邦比我想像中有更多的住宿選擇,最重要的是就算是想住好一點的酒店也不是很貴。龍坡邦的古城真的不大,想住得近大部分景點還有餐廳的可以住在市區。可是想住得有度假風一點還有很多在山上,米田或是河邊的好酒店:

平+抵:想住得近中心又想要靜一點那Jasmine Luangprabang Hotel就很適合。要再近一點的Indigo House Hotel就在夜市的一旁。另外遠一點可以住到由兩間寮式住宅組成的Le Bougainvillier

正:我在龍坡邦時是在2018年七月新開的Pullman Luang Prabang,離市中心十分鐘車程在一片綠油油的稻田中,是龍坡邦最大的酒店,有兩個泳池。想住在市中心湄公河旁,那 Mekong River View是個好選擇。喜歡山的朋友可以考量Khirdara,它還有一個infinity pool呢~
