Breakfast: Head 17 km to Ban Kham which hosts traditional bamboo houses built on stilts above the ground. People live on the first floor of houses raised on timber stilts. Under the house the family keep animals, craft equipment such as a loom and simple food processing machines like large wooden mortars and pestles, a tradition dating back many years. Here you can have a go at panning for gold.
Afternoon: Visit Pakbeng town featuring small cafes, restaurants and a couple of bars. The coffee shops are a must to visit. Here the local people will greet you and advice you on their culture. Sample the freshly made baguettes or chocolate muffins whilst relaxing with a coffee and watching the daily flow of foot traffic. Free time to relax by the infinity swimming pool.
