We also cruised on Nang river reaching to Puong cave to discover stalactites and stalagmites in various forms. The best part of this trip was taking part in local life as sharing a meal (very tasty specialties), talking about their activities, sleeping in their house. A big thank to mr Luong for giving us a great unforgettable memory.
