If you are staying in Luang Phrabang and had enough of streets and night markets it is well worth splashing out (haha) and booking an overnight trip to Kamu Lodge, a beautiful tented camp 3 hours up the Mekong through spectacular bamboo and teak forest. The camp itself is solar-powered and Internet-free, providing a truly peaceful, ecologically responsible but very comfortable haven. There are opportunities to plant rice and visit the local village or simply relax and enjoy the forest noises from your tent verandah overlooking the river. The food is excellent, with a selection of local cuisine and the staff hospitable and friendly.
