Wave goodbye to the guide and be welcome aboard by the experienced host who will explain all about the famous Pak Ou Caves.
Beginning the cruise, observe the daily activities of fishermen and others living along the waterways. For many, life along the river plays an integral role in daily life and usually represents the only means of transportation and commerce.
En route, stop at Ban Xang Hay, a village which specialises in making traditional rice-wine.
Two hours upstream from Luang Prabang, disembark to visit the famous Pak Ou Caves. Locally called Tam Ting, the caves are filled with thousands of gold-lacquered Buddha statues. The statues range in size from a few centimeters tall to the height of a human and are crammed into the cave which is nestled in a limestone cliff.
After visiting the caves, board the boat for a cruise back to Luang Prabang. On the way back, sip on a glass of Prosecco to celebrate this special day. Then tuck-in to a lunch of Laos’ best dishes on board.
Once back in town be picked up by the guide and driver and be transferred to the hotel or to explore the city centre. (L)
