Full Day Tour To Pak Ou Caves, Traditional Village & Kuang Si Waterfall

35 reviews
Combine two Luang Prabang highlights, Pak Ou Caves and Kuang Si Falls, on a full-day tour that includes a traditional Lao lunch and Lao Lao rice wine tasting. Traveling by both riverboat and car is a great way to see the beautiful Luang Prabang countryside from two very different angles—the journey is just as remarkable as Pak Ou's Buddhist cave shrines and the jungle-fringed pools at Kuang Si Falls.

Thieng is a passionate guide to his pottery village and home studio, and explains much of the history and current situation of Ban Chan that's informative. There's a boat ride across the Mekong, the experience of doing hands-on pottery, beautiful pottery to buy, and the best Lao lunch ever.

A worthwhile visit if you are interested in terracotta pottery fired in an amazing underground wood fired kiln. This technique has been used for over 400 years.

This small village outside of LP along the Mekong River was the last stop on our day. We loved visiting the local potters. Our guide interpreted for us and we had great conversations with some of the artisans. We bought a few pieces of small pottery. we observed the community kiln, several artisans, etc.

This was an interesting stop for our small tour group, especially watching the master pottery crafter, however, as far as being able to purchase anything to ship home to the US it was a useless stop. We did buy a few small pottery trinkets from the young girl who did a demonstration first. The first family had a nice area and seating under cover available. Further down where the master was we saw a huge home built outdoor oven which was fascinating with so much lumber to use in it. That was amazing to see and he does beautiful work which graces various hotel lobbies around the city.

You need to have a motorbike for this place. Tut tut that you pick up from the ferry pier on the otheside will do as well, it’s a long way along bumpy dirt track to get to the village, Once there there is nothing to see - apart the village and rhe one or two places selling / disanpottry making.
