This tradition is very unique in Laos, being the only Buddhist nation still preserving the procession. After attending it, we return to the hotel for breakfast. We then transfer to the pier and hop on a private boat for a nice cruise upstream the Mekong river. We stop by an ethnic village on the way, the opportunity to witness how life is going by on the shores of this mighty River before we reach Pak Ou caves.  Locally called Tam Ting, the caves are filled with thousands of gold lacquered Buddha statues.

The essentials of Angkor temples

The centerpiece of any visit to the temples around Siem Reap, Angkor offers many iconic sights for amazing pictures. We continue to the ancient city of Angkor Thom, surrounded by an 8m high wall.
