Road Trip 2016 (6th Day - Luang Prabang)

We woke up early to check into the Villa Lao Wooden House along the peninsula but to our surprise the hotel told us that the confirmed booking by Booking.com could not be confirmed as he has no room available. This was a shock as we had booked with a confirmation SMS from Booking.com. The hotel wouldn't allow us us in and weren't too helpful as well. Now we are stuck again with room problem but fortunately, we found another hotel down the lane last night which has 2 rooms, so need need to get another 2 rooms in another hotel. We manage to confirmed the rooms in Ammata Guesthouse which was about 100m away with helpful staff, mommy did the check in while Dad and Uncle Vincent went searching for hotel. They finally found another hotel at B&B Guesthouse which is located about 2km away from our hotel. Guess we will not be booking with "BOOKING.COM" anymore in the future.

We took a drive to Kuang Si Waterfall which is located about 20km from Luang Prabang town. It has changed so much from the last time daddy was here about 15 years ago but it is still one of the best waterfall. There is a bear rescue centre within the fall compound with more than 20 Asiatic Black bears.

After the visiting the waterfall, we stopped at the butterfly park which is located about 300m before the parking area.

Daddy wanted to drive to Pak Ou cave in the north but Grandpa wasn't keen in taking the boat across and walking up the steps to the cave. We went back to the town and walked around the night market.
