Travel to a land of mystery and stay in a town so charming it was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Marvel at ancient temples dotting the townscape, tour the National Museum, and take a stroll along the Mekong River. Located at the meeting of the Mekong & Nam Khan Rivers, the town offers visitors that natural & cultural experience so desired from a stay in Indochina. Travel along the Mekong River to the Pak Ou Caves where steps lead to thousands of Buddha statues and where the riverbanks abound with traditions and culture, relax by the multi-tiered Kuangsi Waterfalls outside of town, explore local villages, view the sunset from the top of Mt. Phousi in the centre of the old town, and enjoy a traditional Baci ceremony & dinner.
