Today is all about food and what better guide to have than descendants of one of the royal cooks.

Hop in a van and drive through the countryside to the Kuang Si Waterfalls. Enjoy stunning views of vibrant rice paddies and small villages on the way.

Take a short walk to a scenic spot near the falls to commence cooking. The chefs will demonstrate traditional techniques and explain the methodology behind the recipes. Slice, dice and pound fresh herbs and spices to assist in making delicious local dishes.

The hard work pays off when a delectable lunch is served. Savour the variety of flavours and textures in Lao cuisine, knowing that each item is truly authentic.

After lunch, continue upstream to visit the main part of Kuang Si Waterfalls. The falls are a series of cascading turquoise pools, surrounded by a lush forest. Spend time exploring the falls and enjoying the pristine nature. Take a challenging, but rewarding, hike to the top of the highest drop or simply relax on the rocks of the lower pools.

For further insight into the natural wonders of Laos, a stop can be made at the Asiatic Black Bear sanctuary. Located near the Kuang Si falls, this centre houses endangered bears rescued from poachers. The centre explains the efforts of the passionate animal lovers who are working to stop the poachers and preserve the bear’s natural habitat. An additional visit can be made at the unique Lao Buffalo Dairy Farm, a social enterprise that produces sustainable and delicious cheese while giving back to the community and environment. While the buffalo may be the stars here, there are also playful pigs, cheeky chickens and rollicking rabbits that are just as fun to interact with for the young and young at heart. Enjoy a homemade ice cream at the cafe before saying goodbye to the Buffaloes and the team. (Opening Hours: 9.30am – 5.30pm, Monday - Sunday)

Late this afternoon, it is time to return to the city, driving once again through the vibrant rural landscapes that make up the Laos’ countryside. (L)
