Why is it the perfect week to be in Luang Prabang?


Saturday 20th October Join Chef Khamphaeng from Le Calao Restaurant to indulge your flavour sensations on International Chef’s Day.
The Chef’s elegantly designed 8 course Laotian tasting menu features dishes based upon his favourite childhood memories, learned from cooking his grandmother’s family recipes.
Enjoy one of his specialties, the Pork Lakou – a dish inherited from the French colonial period. ‘Lakou’ is how the Lao people have learned to pronounce the word ‘Ragout’ over time. Pork Lakou is considered a delicacy amongst the local people, often served during special occasions such as weddings.
