ITINERARY

DAY 1

Mekong Cruise to Pak Ou Caves

DAY 1 - Mekong Cruise to Pak Ou Caves

From the hotel in Luang Prabang, transfer to the pier and cruise along the mighty Mekong River. Take in the picturesque scenery as the boat whizzes past verdant jungle and dramatic limestone cliff. At the confluence of the Mekong and Ou River, disembark the longtail boat and climb up several steps until reaching an opening in the limestone cliff face. Explore the lower cavern of the two Pak Ou Caves before climbing more stairs to the upper cave. One of Laos’ most respected religious sites, both caves crammed with several thousand Buddha statues, varying in size and poses, which have been left behind by Buddhist devotees.

After this morning exploration, kick back at a floating restaurant and enjoy some delicious local lunch before embarking on the return trip. On the way, stop by two traditional weaving villages – Ban Xang Hai and Ban Xang Khong – and get the chance to observe weavers working ancient wooden looms. Browse through the colourful Lao textiles at several fabric stalls before travelling the final stretch along the river to Luang Prabang.
