Why are they marketing this place as an essential stop off en route to the (not very exciting) caves?
I feel like I've wasted my morning as it is - but I most definitely could have done without a shopping excursion for scarves and snake...More
We made a short stop here after visiting pak ou cave. It was interesting to taste and learn about how the locals distill and produce the rice whiskey. Can’t say it tasted all that great but was nice to have the opportunity to experience this.
