Live like a local Laos, and learn to use bamboo for weaving handicrafts and cooking.

Bamboo is a versatile plant, and the core of Laos culture and way of life. Bamboo is used in a diverse range of household items found in rural Lao homes.

In this experience, you'll learn to weave a souvenir mat made from strips of bamboo plant, using an age-old technique that has been used for centuries. There will also be an interactive cooking class where you can use bamboo as the main ingredient, then have a delicious meal in a rustic pavilion next to rice fields.

This is run by a local family-run business established by Somsay Anolak, who holds great passion in Lao culture and local food. He believes that preserving Laos culture and traditions can benefit the local community as well as travelers from all walks of life.
