About this trip

You will be picked up at your accommodation at your convenient time between 8:00 am and 11:00 am then, we head straight to the pier to embark the long tail slow boat and head off on the mighty Mekong river.

Enjoy the many views from the water, witness rural laos, pass by local villages, fishermen, children and soak up the scenes of daily life by the river.

After the first hour and a bit, the boat takes its first short stop at the popular Ban Xang Hai, also known as ‘the whiskey village’. Here you visit the village, see the process of making Lao Lao, the country’s beloved rice whiskey and taste the fresh local delights. Why not pick up a couple of bottles for later!

We continue by boat travelling slowly along the Mekong in the direction of the glorious Pak Ou Caves. We arrive at a small boat landing dock where stairs lead you straight up to the cave. These limestone Buddhist caves have been a place of worship for thousands of years, over this time a collection of Buddha statues and idols have filled these spiritual natural caves.

Afterwards, we stop at Manifa Elephant Camp and have a full buffet lunch at the restaurant overlooking the Mekong river, and then have 1-hour opportunity to interact with elephants after lunch. Return to the Luang Prabang boat pier and transfer to your hotel.

独学で日本語を習得したトゥーンさんの説明はわかりやすかったです。ラオスのお参りの仕方や生活スタイルの説明も興味深いものでした。またルアンパバーンに行く時はガイドをお願いしたいと思います。
By WADA K for Private Half Day City Tour (with Japanese Speaking Guide) on 21 Nov, 2019
We had an exceptional and wonderful experience, that was planned and organized by Manifa Travel, according our requests. The elephant camp was truly moving, as the elephants are free to roam around and receive a lot of food and affection. Our interaction with the elephants was great especially for our children. Also, the accommodation in the camp (private bungalows with a great river view) and the food (Yami!) were beyond our expectations. Our other activities were exiting and well organized, including the boat on the Mekong river, the bicycle ride, the kayaking and the track in the fields. Our guide (Mr. Wong) was very knowledgeable and attentive to our needs and was fluent in English. We highly recommend Manifa Travel and we are thankful for this great experience.
