If you like Rice Wine it's a place to see. Small village with trinkets and a Wat to see. Plus you can see, learn about Lao Lao Whisky. Have a taste, buy a bottle and enjoy.

First stop on the Mekong Cruise. Here you see how they make the rice spirit, you get to sample and if you like buy it. Teetotal? No problem, there is a lovely little temple and lots of gift shops to browse

There would be a nation in revolt if they thought Scotch Whisky was in anyway connected to the moonshine made here. However, if we ignore the comparison then the experience is one to take in. A stop on a river trip this little village has...More

First of all, this place is called Baan Xang Hai which literally means Pottery Village. But since these pots were mainly used to contain locally brewed whisky, this village has been known for its crystal clear distilled whisky. It has grown bigger since my previous...More

the village makes it's own whisky and wine, then it adds various creatures to the bottles. There is also a small market, and it was interesting to see the looms making materials.

We caught the boat up the Mekong river with two stops; whiskey village and the Pac Ou caves. It Is a good way to see the village. Yes, they are selling the same things as the night market, but it is more personalized. I found...More
