Laos is also known for its traditional crafts, and today you will visit local villages of Lao ethnic minority groups at Ban Ouray, a Hmong village, Ban Ou a Laoloum village and Ban Thapene, a Khmu village.  This then takes us to the beautiful Khuang Si Waterfall where you can cool off with a refreshing swim in the pools or walk along the forest trails. We then return to Luang Prabang. This afternoon, we embark on a cruise upstream on the Mekong                                                                                                                

River, which also gives us a breathtaking view of the tranquil countryside, before reaching the mysterious Pak Ou Caves, two linked caves crammed with thousands of gold lacquered Buddha statues of various shapes and sizes left by pilgrims.  Along the way, we stop at the village of Ban Xanghai, where they make the local rice wine.

This morning we drive to Ban Phong Van, 5 km outside Luang Prabang on the road to the Kwang Xi waterfall, among lush rice fields and overlooked by wooded hills and mountains to join in a Living Land Farm where they grow organic vegetables, salads, herbs and rice and supply leading restaurants and hotels in Luang Prabang. Coming here you will be shown how rice is grown on the farm, experience the life of a farmer and try your hand at some of the activities. Or just view it all from the comfort of our traditional Lao rice house balcony, which is surrounded by rice terraces and our organic vegetable farm. All the family can join in and there are great photo opportunities. Artisans du Mekong in Ban NongXai is located 20 minutes by boat or 15 minutes by minibus from Luang Prabang, Ban Nong Xai is a local village which produces traditional mulberry paper and textile. Artisans du Mekong was created to support local families who can show to the clients their skills in weaving or mulberry saa paper.
