Kamu Rural Experience

This not-to-be-missed Laotian experience takes you back to nature and gives you a wonderful insight into the region’s cultural and ethnic heritage. This is an opportunity to get back to basics and try your hand at various traditional activities. This overnight experience is perfect for everyone, especially adventurous families that want to open their children’s eyes to some totally new ways of life.

Your experience starts by boarding a traditional Long River boat at Wat Xieng Thong Pier, also known as the King’s Pier in Luang Prabang. You then enjoy a leisurely cruise upstream, stopping for a brief visit at the Pak Ou Caves. Continuing your journey you will arrive at your overnight home in time for lunch.

On arrival you then have time to settle in to your new surroundings, as well as checking out your supersize safari tents with attached modern bathroom amenities. It is best described as a modern-day glamping experience!
