  Pak Ou
by jmmorgan

We took a morning boat ride along the Mekong to visit this cave. What a morning it was. Never stopped raining for a second. Still, we enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the river and had an enjoyable stop at a very friendly village on the way.
It is fairly easy to get a boat to Pak Ou at a cost of about $20 for up to four people.
It takes twice as long to get there as the return as you are going against the current.

Directions: Go down to the river bank where the boatmen are easy to find.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
