I joined BB01 with my friend. A tuk-tuk picked us to the pier at around 10 am. As the tour was not guided, a staff explained our itinerary clearly before we got on board. The team prepared us some snacks, drinks, light picnic lunch, and fruits.
The first stop was Long Khoune Temple. It took around 10 minutes to get there by boat. There was a little girl who showed us around and led us to an underground cave with some Buddha statues and a shining rock pillar (she was guiding us for tips). Then we headed to Chompet Temple. After a 15-minute walk, we arrived at the temple. We enjoyed a panoramic view of Luang Prabang as described on the company's website, although it was a bit tired to go upstairs.
We cruised to Ban Thin Som to ride a car to Kuangsi Waterfall after visiting the temples. The views of Mekong were nice with the blue sky and hills of different shapes. The ride was so relaxing.
We arrived at the Kuangsi Waterfall at around 12 pm. We visited the bear rescue center. Two moon bears were fighting, they roared loudly. The others were lying. We learned some fun facts about moon bears there. It was quite interesting to visit there. We saw the waterfall soon after we left the center. Many people were swimming in the natural pools. You should prepare your swimsuit if you join the tour. We walked around and saw some beautiful butterflies! It was so surprising that they stayed in one position usually for a long time, so we could take nice photos of them. The area was very great. Nature lovers would love it.
After around 2.5 hours of free time, we returned to the carpark to ride the car for returning to the pier and returned by boat. On board, we enjoyed fresh fruits and Lao beer on the way.
Overall, the tour is recommended if you are interested in exploring the nature of Luang Prabang. It provides people with a special way to explore different places in a day. It is very easy to find the office and make a booking. They are also selling some lovely traditional crafts there.
