Pak Ou Caves

When not teaching, some of the volunteers visited this famous landmark in the Luang Prabang area, about 2 hours outside of the centre of town. We journeyed the caves by boat, slowly along the river; a relaxing way to travel on a hot afternoon. The caves themselves are fairly magnificent. They have been filled with hundreds of Buddha statues placed there over the years by local people as offerings. It is well worth a visit. We enjoyed it immensely.
