What we say: 3.5 stars

In the village of Ban Xang Hai you can watch production and purchase a bottle, with or without scorpions and snakes to improve your sexual vitality.

It's more of a souvenir stop than a real village with loads of weavings for sale, but a short stop and a few welcoming shots of lao lao can be good fun.

A 90-minute boat ride up the Mekong, Ban Xang Hai is usually visited en route to the Pak Ou Caves.

More details
How to get there: The best time to visit is on the way to or from Pak Ou, but if that's not on the itinerary you can hire a boat at the pier for about 150,000 kip.
