Day 1 Half-Day Food and Biking Tour

Meet your guide at the Tiger Trail Office Ban That Luang. You will be fitted with bikes and head for the morning market where locals from the countryside around Luang Prabang sell their goods. Discover different meats, fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices and learn from your guide how they are used in Lao kitchens. Each year previously unknown varieties of plants are discovered at this morning market. A few local delicacies will be sampled, as well.

Next we head to the most famous Lao coffee shop where you sit by the Mekong River enjoying coffee and local Lao pastry Khanom.

We then cycle to Ban Vieng Xay village, we sit at a local street restaurant and try Naem Khao (a rice noodle crepe, filled with minced meat, mushrooms, and assorted herbs, cut in little pieces, served with a dipping sauce containing minced nuts, lemon, chili, coriander and sweet fish sauce). Depending on your taste, an egg and / or fresh chili can be added to this meal.

To burn some calories, we cycle across the “old” bridge to the other side of the Nam Khan River. After passing by the "German Butcher", a stop at the scenic meeting point of the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers for some photos and a quick drink of water is in order. Continuing on, we cycle through Ban Xieng Lek village to check out local weaving and Saa paper handicrafts. Here is where you see local shops and a non-touristy side of town.

You cannot be Laos without drinking Beerlao, so we head to play pétanque together (approx 30 mins) at a shaded spot and enjoy some cool beer and snacks that we got earlier at the morning market.

The tour ends with you returning the bicycles to the Tiger Trail Shop around 12.30 pm.
