    What to Expect
    At about 8am, you will be greeted and picked up in your Luang Prabang hotel lobby by a local tour guide and a driver. You will be driven along a scenic route to the banks of the Nam Khan River.

Coming to this village, you will be taken around the village by the guide. You will be absolutely impressed by the beautiful weaved houses there. In addition, you can talk with local people and even enter their houses if the owners agree. Don’t be shy to talk to them as the guide will be there to connect you with the locals.
