EN.Unique opportunity to participate to the bamboo flute crafting with an incredible host, full of wisdom and skills. Por the translator was also making this experience wonderful, providing all information and helping the communication with the host. FR. Trois heures excellentes avec une opportunité unique de découvrir les traditions liées à la flûte de bambou et de produire de ses mains un souvenir imperrissable.

Wonderful experience. Not only had the opportunity to learn how to make a bamboo flute, but also learn more about the host, his history, and his culture. Backstreet academy provided an excellent translator that made everything much easier. We even were given two different styles of flute to choose between so it felt more personal. We were a little disappointed that we didn't learn any songs, but we did get to take the bamboo flutes back with us and they said we could practice later.

Very rich experience! This is the best experience I've had during my trip for three months. You start with your flute but you learn to build your flute but also a lot of things about the life of the Hmong. To do and to do !! Thank you and I will come back and show you my progress !!!

This was a fantastic experience. Helping to craft my own flute has been one of the highlights of my travels so far. Getting to watch Xengxoing work his magic, play the flute and talk about the culture of Hmong was fascinating. I would really recommend this authentic experience.
