You can not only see both tribes' way of life, but how they interact and live harmoniously with each other. Living on a farm, you will get to participate with lots of farm activities such as vegetable farming, sticky rice planting, setting traps, cooking the traditional way and even hunting with crossbows and slingshots! This is true farm life and a unique perspective on how a Lao farm is operated and how Lao farmers' go about their daily chores.

We had a wonderful journey during our stay. Our guide Mr Huelee, Mr Vong and The family that hosts us in the village, was generous with their time and shared with us their culture, food and home. The Crossbow arrow making was fun (although i could not finish even one part), but the host was kind enough to complete it for me! He also made me a lovely sling shot and a spinning top. I was taught to pick the right vegetables and also on how rice plantation works! And not forgetting on how to make a Mouse Trap! All in all my time were well spent in this homestay. Definitely will come back again in future! A hour out to our guides, Mr Huelee and Mr Vong and as well the wonderful family of our host!
