Your tour begins as you board a longtail boat for a two hour cruise along the Laotian part of the Mekong River. As you cruise past the tranquil countryside, be sure to look out for local villages, barely visible behind a screen of foliage. You will notice slender canoes and bamboo poles bobbing by the shore, marking the location of nets and fish traps as you make your way to a local handicraft — and paper-making village.
