Ban Pak Beng Travel Guide: 47 reviews and 119 photos

My first day in Laos, my first overnight. And after a spell of heavy rain
I was graced with the most beautiful sunshine.
What a welcome.

Packbeng is Laos along the Mekong... it's rural Laos at its best. It's smiling people, curious children running after you and practising their only English sentence (what's your name?), it's simple shops selling basic items... it's especially a place where no one is really bothered about selling you souvenirs. In fact, there's nowhere to buy them.
Packbeng is the refreshing countryside.
