Small scale distillery in a village which also had a small tourist market. Interesting the small scale indutries that fit in so well in Laos. Worth looking at and while I never bought anything, some of our party did.

An interesting experience watching the people distil alcohol from rice. It was coming out at over 60% proof! If you like whiskey go here!

Its a small traditional Lao village only for tourists, that they can see how whiskey is made of rice.Apart from that there is nothing special, even the local stores have the same things as in the night market.

Was part of a mandatory stop as part of a river tour. No more than 30 minutes is required . Can be done in 15 minutes. Essentially sell the same stuff as the night market so no different. The houses are your typical houses but...More

Hoping to see real village, but ended up with seeing many shops selling local produce. Did not spend much time at the location, but continued with the sunset cruise.
