More About This Experience
As travelers ourselves, more often than not curiosity always gets the better of us and we find ourselves wandering aimlessly into the countryside hoping to stumble upon and get glimpses of how most Laotians while away their time. And sure enough, over several trips to the countryside of Luang Prabang we've come across a variety of activities that truly represent how the average Laotian go about their daily lives, and we've taken it upon ourselves to design a tour that showcases exactly this in the most authentic and immersive manner possible.
Spend 30 minutes driving with us and you will have the chance to soak into countryside atmosphere where you will see many non-touristy attractions and the charming beauty of Laos's true life and people. More than that, you will participate in the activities from rice husking with a traditional mortar to working in the farm and hunting crabs in the streams like the local, even how to set up a mouse trap.
