Experience the real Laos

So many people travel to a country to see exactly what life is really like somewhere but just occupy the surface.

Well here is your chance: I got an opportunity to visit the guide Somsay's and his family at their house. His mother, Mae Phat, taught me how to bargain in the market and select the ingredients. When we arrived at his house which I was shuttled to, I got to learn how to craft things from bamboo with his uncle. We cooked multiple dishes with his mother and use new ingredients like eggplant berries and sawtooth coriander. We cooked stuffed bamboo shoots and fish wrapped in banana leaves. I got to learn how to cook Laotian spice pastes with pickled bamboo. Everything is prepared outside over coals in a bamboo hut. After we ate lunch there was a performance of a bamboo instrument together with a dance from Yeah Xiong Her a local expert. Such a range of activities I think I need a nap.

More than just a set of skills I felt like I was an invited guest rather than just a customer.

Everything here is themed around bamboo which by the end you realise how important it is for all aspects of Laotian life. Would heartily recommend to anyone and everyone thinking of going. There was a week's worth of activities done in a single day!
A Worthwhile Visit

The workshop includes transportation from and back to our hotel. A thumbs-up to the interesting program lined up on the day. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable in sharing the tradition and culture of Laos related to bamboo. Surprisingly, they are able to converse in rather good English. We enjoyed the activities especially the crossbow shooting practice, and not forgetting the yummy dishes served during lunch. It is a good experience for family of all ages. Last but not the least, thank you for offering to send my son to the hospital when he was unwell during the workshop. We appreciate the nice gesture from Somsay and staff.
Total empfehlenswert

Wir hatten einen abwechslungsreichen Tag mit tollen Einblicken in die laotische Kultur. Das Weben hat uns besonderen Spass bereitet. Ausserdem konnten wir mit einer Art Armbrust schiessen, einen typischen Tanz sowie diverse Spielsachen aus Bambus ausprobieren.
Das Kochen, auch wenn man nicht ganz alles selber machen kann, hat total Spass gemacht. Das Essen war sehr lecker, was von den typischen Essgewohnheiten unterstrichen wurde.
Der Staff war total freundlich, aufgeschlossen und lustig.
Total empfehlenswert, wenn auch nicht ganz günstig.
