A few minutes respite from the boat trip back from the caves, stopping to climb to the little whisky village. Our guide explained the three types they make and we sampled each. No-one was tempted to buy the medicinal versions ie bottles of whisky with...More

Whisky Village is included on most tours outside the city, especially river trips because the tourist market is right next to the river dock. Chief commodity on sale is rice liquor, and you can get it with or without "medicinal" additives, such as snakes. There's...More

Stopped at the village as part of trip up river. Ok to stop for a bit. No pressure to buy. Pleasant to stretch legs and have a wander. Some local stuff for sale. Whisky without an animal is a fun souvenir!

We didnt go with a guide but there was literally nothing there but a stall with whiskey and about 5 stalls with scarves. Really not worth making the stop unfortunately.

We stopped here on our trip to the caves. Interesting to see the whisky being made but the shops around it sell the same fare as most other retailers. Unless you are right in to whisky give it a miss.

People are really harsh on here! This was a lovely stop off on our way to the caves. It was great to see how whisky and rice wine were made and an opportunity to see how Laos people live. We bought 4 bottles to take...More

A small market - with some nice workers. A bit to see but maybe wished to see a little bit more. Worth a visit anyway.
