Day 2: Elephant Experience - Mekong River Cruise

Wake up as the sun rises, we will prepare to join the most sacred tradition of Laos, the daily morning alms giving, which dates to the 14th century. More than 200 Buddhist monks depart from various temple to gather their daily meal from the faithful residents sitting quietly on the streets.
From there, we will visit the temporary morning market near the former Royal Palace. Just set on the ground, the local people come here to barter their day’s catch from rice, to vegetable, to fish, or chicken. This is the best chance to experience the flavor of local life
After breakfast, we drive directly to Ban Xang Hai, which is famous for the traditional rice whiskey distilled.
From there, we enjoy the 30-minute elephant ride exploring the Mekong river at the nearby elephant camp.
Continue driving to Ban Pak Ou, and take the boat crossing the Mekong river to visit the mysterious Pak Ou Caves, two linked caves crammed with thousands of gold lacquered Buddha statues of various shapes and sizes left by pilgrims.
We then take the boat downstream the Mekong river back to Luang Prabang.
Upon arrival, visit UXO Visitor Center (closed on Saturday, and Sunday), where you can find the documentation about the secret war in Laos.

Day 3: Rice Experience - Kuang Si Waterfalls

Begin today’s close-up look at daily Laotian life by heading out for a morning at a community-based living rice farm in the idyllic countryside outside Luang Prabang. Surrounded by mountains and rice paddies, you’ll have an opportunity to experience rural life as a Laotian farmer would, trying your hand at various farm activities – or observing them from a traditional Lao rice house balcony, set amidst rice terraces and an organic vegetable farm. You’ll have time to check out nearby workshops where local bamboo weavers, blacksmiths and sugar cane processors practice their crafts. Then take a tour of the organic garden to learn how natural herbs are used in traditional medicine.

Lunch will be served at the terrace overlooking the rice field
Later on, we drive to the beautiful Kuang Si Waterfall which is the biggest in the Luang Prabang area with three tiers leading to a 50-metre drop into spectacular azure pools before flowing downstream. The pools also make great swimming holes and are very popular with both tourists and locals
We will also take a short visit to the Bear Rescue Center, which houses a couple of dozen animals rescued from the hands of poachers and traffickers.
On the way back to the town, we will take a short visit to the Ock Pop Tock Living Craft Center, set serenely close to the Mekong, this beautiful, traditionally styled workshop, where weavers, spinners and batik makers produce top-quality fabrics, offers free tours every half-hour. This place is also the perfect spot to admire the sunset.

A long tour, but worth the views. The boat trip is long, but they advise you of this prior. (2hr boat trip) But it's ok coz you can take a nap since the boat trip is nice. Only thing that is bad about this tour is that it's quite a hike to get to the cave at the top and a hike to get to the top of the falls. But the views are worth it.

The guide for the trip was very nice and informative, always trying to keep the conversation going even though it was a small group. The activities were very good with the cruise up the Mekong and the caves being impressive. Unfortunately the adverse weather meant that we couldn't go swimming in the waterfalls however this was just down to bad luck and nothing bad from the operators. We did however feel that the price of the trip was a bit too expensive given that the cost of the attractions and the cost of taxis and boats was significantly cheaper, and we feel we could have done the trip ourselves for less than half the price.
