More About This Experience

A classic Hmong toy played for centuries in Hmong villages, it is still a favorite pastime for many Hmong children and even among the adult men. When there are festivals, the men traditionally gathers at the centre of the village and plays rounds after rounds of competitive top-throwing. A simple way of competing is just to see who's top is better made and thrown by seeing how long it spins. A more interesting way is for one person to throw his top inside a circle, and others try to hit it with theirs. Aiming and spinning the the top might seem easy but there's still a challenge to doing it right! If you are interested in ethnic culture and playing such village games with the locals, this course is perfect for you as you'll be able to make your own wooden top, then face off with curious villagers who are more than delighted to play their favorite game with you! Note: Bring your own drinking water

An interesting activity like how we used to do in the kampungs back home. Make spinning tops of wood, wrap up in string and throw. Had a little competition with the village children and my family too competing to hit each other's top off after making them. Fun little game for everyone to take part and play with the villagers.
