Rub shoulders with locals shopping for everything from livestock to insects at a local market, cruise across a manmade lake to fishing villages, and enjoy a tasty lunch served aboard a boat. With your private guide, get up-close looks at a salt farm and explore centuries-old ruins.

Meet up with your private guide outside your Vientiane hotel and take a winding drive toward the shores of the Nam Ngum Reservoir. On the way, stop off at a Hmong village to check out a bustling market, and then unleash your inner archaeologist with a stop at an archaeological site in Vang Xang to wander past 8th-century ruins that date back to the Khmer empire.

Grab lunch on a boat moored in the reservoir, take a cruise around the shoreline to visit local fishing villages, and then return to your private car for the return ride to Vientiane. Before you get back, swing by a salt farm in Ban Keun and check out Dong Mark Khai Market, where everything from livestock and wild animals to edible insects are for sale.
