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. Here, you’ll see what daily life is like for the local farmers in this remote area. As your tour winds down, you’ll toast your journey with wine as you watch the sun set on the river.
