Day 04 : Hot Spings - Phonesavanh - Departure
Breakfast at the resort, visit the hot spring, and then travel by car to visit Tampaew. This martyr and historical cave is where over 300 villagers went into hiding, after being completely bombed out during the war.Lunch at local restaurant.Return to Phonesavanh and visit the Plain of Jars, site no. #1, a large area extending around Phonesavanh where several hundred huge jars of unknown origin are scattered about in over a dozen groupings. Several theories have been advanced as to the functions of the jars (burial urns, wine fermenters, rice storage), but there is no evidence confirming one theory over the other. However, in the 1930s, French archeologists found ashes, stone axes, bronze ornaments and ceramics, which may have been offerings to the dead. When the Plain of Jars is listed by UNESCO and cleared from remaining UXOs, further archeological investigation may bring a clue to all the unanswered questions.Visit the Lao Sericulture Company at their silk farm and training center, featuring Mulberries, silk and tea.
