I am a strong proponent of local tourism that benefits the poorer communities. I had two problems with this attraction: (1) There are lots of items for sale but very little of it is locally made. In fact, there are so many cheap and nasty...More

Visited this place as part of the boat ride from Houayxay to Louang Prabang. When we alighted from the boat, our guide gave us a great description of how the whisky was made. After that, we got to taste the whisky before buying. Besides selling...More
