You then have ample time to visit the school, play with the kids and watch them enjoy their new books. You also take some time to explore the rest of the village, where you can see weaving and visit the local temple. Next, stop for lunch at the village, which can either be a western picnic lunch, or traditional Lao food such as sticky rice, lap and fresh vegetables cooked by the villagers.
After lunch, say good bye to the village and drive to Ban Khoklin, which takes you through some beautiful scenery of mountains and paddy fields. At Ban Khoklin, you will board a private boat down the Nam Ou River for 30 minutes to Pak Ou Caves, two linked caves crammed with thousands of gold lacquered Buddha statues of various shapes and sizes left by pilgrims. You then continue down the Mekong River back to Luang Prabang by late afternoon. End tour at your nice hotel
