You're about right on timing and cost. I cannot remember all the prices but looks alright. Ensure the waterfalls have water. If there's rain, you should go for both Tad Kwang Si and Si Kiang. And go on seperate days..it is cheaper to go on the same day-package but you have less time because they are far apart. Happy travels!

Travel Tips for Luang Prabang

Haw Pha Bang

by Blatherwick

The new structure built in 2000 to house the Pha Bang, the golden Buddha that is Lao Buddhism's most revered image. It is located on the Museum Palace Grounds and is one of the most beautiful temples that you will see anywhere.

Soccer Playing Monks

by Blatherwick

Okay, you've seen the movie about monks playing soccer. But I saw it for real. The monks were using a tennis ball but they were having a great time. The monk in the picture is showing off his hacking skills.

Daily Offerings to Monks

by trisanna

In Laos and other Theravada Buddhist countries (Thailand and Cambodia) monks are not allowed to cook for themselves. They depend completely for their food from mostly local women, some men too.

The monks and novices leave their temple before sunrise and start their procession around their own wat. Locals line up on the street with food for each monk. The monk opens his offering bowl and the women will put a few spoonfulls of food in it. Mostly what they get is rice and a little bit of meat or vegetables. The women will kneel on mats and not look at the monks, where the men will stand and can look at the monks.

The first day we arrived in Luang Prabang we met a very friendly novice monk. We found the monks and novices very friendly here, probably more so here than anywhere else we have been. They are very approachable and eager to practice their English. The novice we met told us about this and invited us to join the devotees. We woke up early that morning and brought many packets of cookies, which we bought the day before. Also by the various routes, are walking vendors, who sell rice and other items for the monks. I sat down next to an older Lao woman, who tried to explain somethings in French and she helped me on how to give how the items to the monks. Even though i am not Buddhist or didn't grow up with any religion, I found this experience to be very moving. I highly recommend this to anyone.

Natural Resources

by sieffron

My stay in Luang Prabang coincided with the conclusion of the rainy season. I didn't see a drop of rain during my two weeks in Laos and as a result, the water levels of the rivers were subsiding. During the time I spent in kayaks, paddling down rivers, I saw numerous instances where Lao men were shovelling piles of stones where the water had receded from the river banks. According to my guides, members of these groups of laborers would make about ten dollars per week after selling a truckload of stones, which is used for building.

Pak Ou Caves & Whisky Village

by haydnesque

25 km north of Luang Prabang. Ride a boat through the mightly mekong. see hundres of buddahs inside the two caves. after the cave trip, the boat will take you to Whisky village to buy some exotic sovenir and or to see the simple rural life of the Lao tribe. it's a great tiring experience.
