The riverbank restaurant serves mainly organic cuisine. On days with 20+ more people, guests will also get to enjoy an ethnic minority dance performance in the restaurant area.
During the cruiseDuring the two-day cruise there are two stops to local Lao villages where guests can experience typical Lao village life. During the guided tour, guests will also witness how local handicrafts and Laotian rice whiskey are made. There will be an additional stop at the Pak Ou Caves located 25kms from Luang Prabang. The two caves contain thousands of Buddha images and are of great religious importance to Theravada Buddhists in Laos. The caves were converted into Buddhist temples during the 15th century and are used as a site for old Buddha images that can no longer be venerated in a temple, either because they are damaged or the temple in which they were displayed has been destroyed.
