To celebrate the introduction of this brand new route, AirAsia is offering Free Seats* for a limited period of time, which are available for booking online at www.airasia.com from now until 25 September 2016. The travel period for this promotion is from 21 November 2016 until 28 October 2017.

AirAsia is proud to offer another international connection within the Asean region to connect the people and close the borders to create a true ASEAN Community. We look forward to launching many more intra-Asean routes in near future to facilitate greater growth of the region’s tourism sector as well as the economy.”

A UNESCO World Heritage city, Luang Prabang is one of the most alluring places in Southeast Asia known for its Golden-roofed Wats, saffron-clad monks, faded Indo-chinese villas and exquisite Galliccuisine. This former capital is located at the Northern Central of Laos, approximately 300km North of Vientiane at the sacred confluence of the Mekong River and the Nam Khan River.

Visitors can marvel at the stunning ‘Tree of Life’ mosaic set at Wat Xieng Thong, partake in the traditional alms giving with the locals, swim in the spectacular azure pool at the Kuang Si Waterfalls and savour Khao Soi - a popular local noodle soup dish that can be found at food stalls running along Luang Prabang streets.
