Full Day Pottery Village &
Pha Tad Ke Botanical Garden

Known for its temples, Luang Prabang’s multi-faceted attractions even reach further afield from its laid-back
centre. Ancient pottery making and leisurely walking through hundreds of floral species
are seen as a great add-on to complete your explorations

WHY THIS TOUR?

When Luang Prabang temples are ticked off, yet your stay in the unofficial tourism capital of this land-locked country goes on, keen adventurers with a weak spot for nature, local traditions and meeting artisans on their own grounds further enriches any Laos stay beyond expectations.

Hike, boat and drive is the name of the transportation game this day with ample time to really see more of Laos’ pottery-making history and its devotion to protect its plants, flowers and trees.

TRAIL ITINERARY

Full Day Pottery Village & Pha Tad Ke Botanical Garden

08:30 - 15:00

There is no better way than to break up the day than with a great Laotian lunch. Locally sourced yet spiced to match the tantalising taste of how Laotians love to have it, yet another element of true Laotian culture is served on a platter. The venue is an open-air house, constructed along time-honoured principles adding to the culinary experience.

After thanking the team for a delicious break, you’ll be guided to the Pha Tad Ke Botanical Garden, a 40-hectare protected zone outside Luang Prabang where a plethora of green awaits nature-loving guests. The botanical garden is a local initiative where various species of plants, trees, flowers, and spices from across Laos are curated. Set up in such a way that visitors can admire the numerous species in their own tempo, sign posts ensure that any questions are answered. From orchids to ferns and even bamboo and palms, all is laid-out to maximize the enjoyment of seeing a vastness of Laotian flora on display with the characteristic limestone cliffs surrounding Luang Prabang as your back drop.

Time to head back to Luang Prabang and your accommodation is a short boat ride away from the botanical garden, where you will have the chance to thank your guide for this day out and about.
