Today you’ll travel through rural landscapes of rice terraces and pineapple fields to Ban Longlao, a H'mong village, absorbing the culture, customs and language so different to mainstream Laos. From here you’ll begin your trek (2-3 hours) through the forest to see the beautiful Kuang Si Waterfall where you can enjoy lunch and swim and clamber the falls. You’ll return to Luang Prabang to take part in a Baci ceremony and enjoy folk dances, and joining in the Laotian social "Lamvong" dance with local people.

After breakfast, you’ll be driven to Ban Done Nguen for a cruise down on Nam Ou River through beautiful mountain scenery, joining the Mekong River at Pak Ou Caves, to visit these two linked caves crammed with thousands of gold lacquered Buddha statues of various shapes and sizes left by pilgrims. Venturing further downriver, you’ll return to Luang Prabang.
Day 4:
An optional early start today gives you the opportunity to witness the world famous daily alms procession ritual. Following breakfast, you will be picked up from your hotel and transferred to the pier for a short private cruise to the ancient Royal temple of Wat Long Khoun, formerly used by Kings and Queens for meditation.  We will then have a leisurely cycle to the village of Xienmene, visiting a local school before cycling on to the beautiful Hoy Khua Waterfall.  Cycling on, we’ll come to the riverside village of Ban Pak Leuang and re-board our boat, enjoying a picnic lunch while following the Mekong upstream to the village of Ban Chan, famous for its pottery making, and learn about local life. Afterwards, our boat will return us to Luang Prabang by late afternoon.

Day 8:
Today, we journey northeast from Siem Reap to Beng Mealea Temple, similar in scale to Angkor Wat but which remains utterly swallowed by the jungle.

Later, we continue on to the ancient city of Koh Ker, visiting its treasures, such as the pyramid temple of Prasat Thom, the beautiful Prasat Krahom, covered by jungle, and some of the smaller structures such as Prasat Neang Khmau before returning to Siem Reap in the late afternoon.
