Xieng Khouang Tours
One of the true gems of Laos, Xieng Khouang Province offers a real glimpse into the history of the area. From the Plain of Jars (which is currently waiting to be declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site) to the more recent and devastating history with the 9 year ‘Secret War' with the continual air-bombardment of the area by the Americans in the 1960s and 1970s - leading to Laos being the most bombed country per capita in the world, taking a Xieng Khouang Tour provides incredible insight into this beautiful region on Laos.
The Plain of Jars is a collection of 2,000 stone ‘jars' that are laid out across the Xieng Khouang landscape. While the are 3 sites that have been checked for UXOs and opened to the public, there are actually more than 60 other sites, containing hundreds of Jars, that have yet to be opened to the public. In our ‘Make Spoons Not War' tour, you get the chance not only to visit these mystical jars, but also to meet local villagers and see how they are turning the US Bombs into local handicrafts for sale to tourists! Alternatively, trekking in Xieng Khouang is an equally tremendous experience. Hike to Hmong Mountain Villages and the Ban Phakeo jar site on a Phonsavan tour.
