Ban Phanom Village is situated on the bank of Nam Khan River, about 4 km to the north of Luang Prabang. The village is noted in particular for cotton and silk weaving. The woven products were once supplied to the royal family and weavers today use the same techniques and patterns, resulting in a distinctly old-fashioned look. To get to the village, you can make a trip by bike or tuk-tuk. Here, you can observe the female textile makers at work on their looms, dyeing and then weaving. If you are interested in buying some textiles as a souvenir then it is definitely worth visiting here instead of buying at the night market.
