Running for Charity

This year’s edition of the famous Half-Marathon will take runners past many of Luang Prabang’s top attractions from Phousi Hill to the former Royal Palace and WatWisunalat, and include three kilometres along the Nam Khan and Mekong rivers. Sofitel will be joining other Luang Prabang hotels in sponsoring the event.

The Charity Splash

Following Luang Prabang Marathon, Sofitel has invited runners and anyone else who is lucky enough to be in town that day to cool down in the hotel’s plunge pool and enjoy some succulent barbecue and drinks to the chill-out tunes of the DJ.

The event begins at 1pm – 6pm and the $25.00 entrance fee includes admittance to the pool, the lunch buffet at Governor’s Grill, and a welcome homemade punch.
