    Fabulous series of spectacular waterfalls, spoilt only by the numbers of tourists.
    There is also a sanctuary for rescued moon bears.

    We had a great time visiting this farm and learning the whole process to produce sticky rice. Our guide, Sai was really informative and funny. We had a chance to have a go at all of the different stages. Standing knee deep in mud planting rice is really good fun. You can even plough with Susan the buffalo. Even if you don't include lunch with your booking you get lots of really delicious rice snacks at the end.
    We booked direct with the farm as it's cheaper and they pick you up from the hotel in their own tuk tuk

    This was one of our favourite places in Luang Prabang. The buildings are beautiful and the tree of life mosaic is impressive. Be prepared it will probably be crowded

    This is the best place to get up close to these beautiful, heartbreaking animals. The aim here is to ban all elephants from being held in captivity for riding, logging or any form of entertainment and return them all eventually to a protected wild environment. The guides are incredibly knowledgeable and informative, their passion for the cause is evident. They really need our support.

    It’s definitely worth doing, once! There are 2 main routes to/from. You can enter / exit on the main avenue in town, across from the museum, or you can enter / exit by the Namkhan River.
    The River choice is far-less crowded, so I went up that way, and exited to the
    downtown side.
    The views from the top are terrific, but
    it gets super-crowded, and very noisy,
    even by 10 AM. There’s not a lot of space at the summit platform, so if you are claustrophobic, know that in advance. If I went again, I would probably go about 8 AM, to avoid the crowds.

    This market is very large and has many different items for sale geared for the tourist. It was fun finding gifts and clothes and of course the friendly bartering that takes place.

    The old section of Luang Prabang remains one of the best maintained heritage cities in Asia. Many of the buildings and temples are very old, but positively even new constructions are largely kept within traditional styles, which helps to maintain the historic vibe of the town.

    The waterfalls here are braided and stepped. It's very scenic. I have an affinity for traveling to view falls, which I've done in several countries.

    This can be a good visit if you know what to expect. So get a shirt with sleeves (even short ones) and longer pants/skirt and you are set. Unfortunately, you can only take some photos outside. Everything must be dropped at the entrance (backpacks, cameras, etc). But it's still worth checking out as the interior of the palace is quite impressive and there are some interesting tidbits to discover. But then you'll have to go read some history on your own as they won't be telling you what happened to to royal family. Don't miss the car collection behind the museum too!

    We visited in the morning the sunlight was beautiful, it was a lovely place very well thought out. Costing 100k or you can pay more to do a tour including Apple pie and a drink, we did the 100k tickets. We were given a guide book with interesting information, and one of the workers explained the life cycle of butterflies. Really magical experience to see all the beautiful butterflies for adults and if you have children I'm sure they would love it. Also, a small waterfall/river runs through the place which you can see. Would highly recommend on the way to see Kuang Si waterfall, it would be a long trip just to see the butterflies.

    Amazing experience riding the elephant bareback down to the Mekong for a swim. The elephants are well cared for and there was absolutely no signs of mistreatment.

    Riding was bareback with nothing to hold on to so you should be reasonably agile as you may be on the elephant on your own!

    These elephants are bred by the village and were never wild so being released is not an option. I fail to see how it is different to riding a horse or walking a dog on a leash. Go and experience it for yourself and then you can make up your own mind.

    Great experience followed up by the sunset cruise.

    Worth experience if you can get up just before dawn. Somehow we were able to do that even though we both like to sleep in. One of the best ways to feel like you are part of their community, and support their culture. Although we both bought sticky rice for the monks from local merchants, you might want to explore other ways of giving.

    The park is great for hiking and was bigger than expected. If you take your time and do the whole loop expect at least 2 hours. The caves were a bit disappointing. There is plenty of food/drink available and you can pay extra for zip lining or tree walking. Park entrance price is very fair at 20k. Only problem is the dirt road there. A Loca driver took me there, no problem, but now I am having trouble getting one to drive me back! So plan accordingly or wait until they close around 5pm and they offer a shuttle service back for $5.

    Relaxing boat ride over to the garden followed by an excellent lunch in the restaurant. Explored on my own time, no rush, lots of time to take photos of the flowers, butterflies and views.

    Great place. I would recommend anyone who will be in Luang Prabang. Very nice people with a lot of knowledge about organic farming.
