Itinerary

Day 1


Pak Ou Caves and Sunset

We will pick you up from your accommodation by tuk tuk at 1pm and go to the boat, where our English-speaking staff will send you off and explain anything necessary for the boat driver. The trip upstream is almost 2 hours, plenty of time to sit back and enjoy the river scenery. An optional lunch is available if you have had a busy morning sightseeing and want to maximize your time. When you arrive at Pak Ou you have an hour to explore the lower and upper caves. There are optional stops at the whiskey and paper villages. The return trip is much faster, taking half the time coming downstream. Bask in the sunset along the way back. We will then return to the boat station and send you back to your accommodation at about 5 to 5.30pm.


Outfit Recommendations

Comfortable clothes. There is uneven ground so walking shoes/sandals will make it easier.

Poor weather plan

If there are heavy thunderstorms at time of departure we wait the storm out, or can arrange for next day if guests have time.

Safety notices

Boats are equipped with life vests.
