I personally didn't mind the Whisky Village. It was a break from sitting on hard seats in the boat.
You are greeted by locals at the top of the steps where they are also brewing there whisky and
wine. You can taste these and purchase same. You can take a walk around the stalls where
locals are selling there wares. This stop is for the tourist but also a toilet stop when on your
way to Pak Ou caves

Thinking you are supporting the local craftspeople is like thinking bears enjoy being paid to dance. Bottling scorpions, snakes and assorted creatures in hooch for the gratification of tourists shouldn't be indulged.

The village is geared to the tourist, and there are better places to get your rice Whisky. Our guide took us down the Mekong by long tailed boat and we stopped at another village where they gave us toasts and passed the time delightfully. It was off the beaten path, so made the whisky Village pale by comparison. Nonetheless, the river trip is well worth any stop along the way.

It's one of the mandatory stops on the way to the Buddha Cave. The place was neither interesting nor exciting. It's a wee wee stop.

This whisky village made me unlike whisky what was my favorite. They made whisky by many things mixed. Look arround this area what is so dirty with unfriendly people. We just look and dont wanna by with bad whisky what they calling. If you just touch and leave, they will be talk & talk some other language what you cant understand. Dont go this village any way !
