Being a passage between Huay Xai and Luang Prabang, Pakbeng is frequently visited by travelers. You will find several ethnic groups, particularly Khmu or Hmong people, who come to the morning market to sell their textiles and handicrafts or exchange goods.
There are two temples in the village that should not be missed, including Wat Jong Sin Jaeng which dates back the French colonial time with remarkable and sacred objects.
Pakbeng is also the place where you can relax with a traditional massage after excursions to the surrounding areas or before starting a new boat trip to Luang Prabang.
