Package Itinerary

Meet your guide at the Tiger Trail Sales Office on the main street near the National Museum. You will be fitted with bikes and head for the most famous Lao coffee shop where you sit by the Mekong River enjoying coffee and sharing the local Lao pastry Khanom Khrok.

Next head to the nearby morning market where locals from the countryside around Luang Prabang sell their goods. Discover different meats, fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices, and learn from your guide how they are used in Lao kitchens. Each year previously unknown varieties of plants are discovered at this morning market. A few local delicacies will be sampled, as well.

We then cycle to the Wat That Luang area to eat Khao Poon, a coconut noodle-style soup, which is a delicious, rare find in Luang Prabang! A short distance away at Ban Vieng Xay village, we sit at a local street restaurant and try a variety of food including Naem Khao (a rice noodle crepe, filled with minced meat, mushrooms, and assorted herbs, cut in little pieces, served with a dipping sauce containing minced nuts, lemon, chili, coriander, and sweet fish sauce) and Khao Piak Khao (a local rice soup, that is usually eaten in the morning, slowly cooked with pork meat and meat broth, rounded with crushed black pepper and chopped coriander). Depending on your taste, an egg and/or fresh chili can be added to this meal.

To burn some calories, we cycle across the “old” bridge to the other side of the Nam Khan River. After passing by the "German Butcher", a stop at the scenic meeting point of the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers for some photos and a quick drink of water is in order. Continuing on, we cycle through Ban Xieng Lek village to check out local weaving and Saa paper handicrafts. Here is where you see local shops and a non-touristy side of town.

A new restaurant made of 100% bamboo nestled on another river, the Nam Khan, is the next stop. The food is to die for and we'll have more top-quality local Lao food. Your taste buds won’t know what hit them!

The tour ends with you returning the bicycles to the Tiger Trail Shop around 1 pm.
