I have been on a lot of day tours in Southeast Asia in my time- and this was one of the worst.
When arriving to the pak ou caves, no matter if your tour company/booking agent said entry fees were included, everyone had to pay 20000kip. There were quite a few disagreements going on between the people who appeared to be "staffing" the caves and fellow tourists.
The statues inside the caves were abundant, but really do not live up to expectations at all.
The caves were not lit which made the features hard to see & not well maintained at all- trash littered a lot of the vicinity.
The only toilet in the area was one which required you to pay 30000 kip to use it!! Pretty pathetic for a tourist hot spot.
However, the boat trip was excellent and it was quite peaceful to take the slow boat - great to see the locals in action.
Over all- Don't waste your money - save it for a halong bay boat cruise and see the spectacular caves there!
