Half Day Tour of The Plain of Jars
Spend half a day exploring one of the most unique and mysterious historical sites in Southeast Asia; the Plain of Jars. Visit three of the jar sites and learn about the many theories as to the origins and purpose of these stone urns.
You will begin your tour at Site 1 which is the largest, before moving to Site 2 at Hai Hin on Phou Salator. The final stop will be Site 3 in Hai Hin Lat Khai, which is home to over 150 jars. You will also visit the village of Ban Xiengdi to have a look around the local monastery.
It is estimated that the jars date back to Southeast Asia’s Iron Age, which lasted from 500 BC to 200 AD. The jars vary greatly in size, with some being up to a metre wide and three metres tall. The Plain of Jars has more than 2,500 jars across 90 sites, however this area was heavily bombed during the America-Vietnam war, and so most of the sites are still inaccessible due to UXO (unexploded ordinances). The areas open to visitors have been cleared, however please ensure that you stay within the marked areas.
