thousand Buddhas’ at Pak Ou (the mouth of the Ou River).

repository of Buddha statues in a tradition which has lasted for centuries.

and be free to sample the infamous local ‘lao lao’ rice wine.
• Opportunities for fantastic photos, taken from the comfort of a private
slow-boat, which can slow-down or speed-up as you wish.

dramatic, precipitous mountain scenery.
