We continue by boat travelling slowly along the Mekong in the direction of the glorious Pak Ou Caves. We arrive at a small boat landing dock where stairs lead you straight up to the cave. These limestone Buddhist caves have been a place of worship for thousands of years, over this time a collection of Buddha statues and idols have filled these spiritual natural caves

EXPERIENCES

A unique little village on the banks of the Mekong River. Ban Xang Hai is famous for their handicraft products like distilling and selling whisky, hand woven fabric and jewelry.

The boat trip takes us north to the famous Pak Ou Cave, well known as Tham Ting or Ting Cave, located on the riverbank, about 25km from Luang Prabang. The cave is very beautiful and filled with thousands of Buddha images and has long served as a pilgrimage site for all kinds of people, including members of the former royal family.

The heritage city Luang Prabang is built on the confluence of the Mekong and the Nam Khan rivers. The Mekong river has been the major highways for people and goods for centuries and the boat transportation is still indispensable for daily life even today. Taking a boat trip is probably one of the most rewarding ways to discover the local life along the rivers.

Enjoy a delicious buffet-style lunch at the restaurant overlooking the Mekong river. Savour the traditional laos flavours and delight in the western international style dishes. Made with love and fresh local ingredients | Vegetarian options available

The Kuang Si Falls, sometimes spelled Kuang Xi or known as Tat Kuang Si Waterfalls, is a three levelled waterfall about 29 kilometres (18 mi) south of Luang Prabang. These waterfalls are a favourite side trip for tourists in Luang Prabang. The falls begin in shallow pools atop a steep hillside. These lead to the main fall with a 60 metres (200 ft) drop.
