Top Places To Visit 6 Spots
Kouangxi Water Fall
Walk through open farmland and forest trails to the Kuang Si Waterfall, which, though not very high, are striking in its lush jungle setting. Upon arrival there are plenty of opportunities to swim in the refreshing pools and enjoy a boxed picnic lunch. There is also the option to visit Ban Phonesay, a village well known for its silk weavings that have even been featured in the New York Time Magazine.
Pak Ou Caves
The Pak Ou Caves overlook the Mekong River just where it is about to meet the Ou River. Situated in a mountain face, they have hundreds of Buddha statues in a myriad number of shapes, positions and sizes. A visit to the caves can be arranged, either by hiring a guide or soliciting the help of a local from Luang Prabang. Once at the caves, the entrance will cost you $1 and the boat ride, $10.
