Know More about this tour

Today, get ready for an in-depth look at the daily life of Luang Prabangs three most prominent ethnic cultures: the Hmong, Khmu and Lao Loum. Start your journey at the home of a local Hmong family, one of many Hmong residents in Luang prabang. Here, sit down with the family and your guide for a chat to learn about how resettlement efforts for ethnic communities like the Hmong changed the rhythm of their daily lives. Afterwards, follow the lead of your host as he walks you through the intricacies of traditional flute making, one of the Hmong communitys most treasured traditional instruments. The traditional art of flute-making is quickly disappearing in modern Laos, but your host is both a flute enthusiast and one of the most respected flute players in the city. Listen to how the flute is played before rolling up your sleeves to make your own!After the workshop, enjoy a traditional Laotian lunch at the Sunset View restaurant while admiring stunning views of the Mekong River.Wander the city alongside your guide and visit some of Luang Prabangs most famous temples, including the arrest-ingly ornate Wat xieng thong and the magnificent Royal palace. Both are prime examples of the fusion of traditional Laotian and Buddhist architecture, and remain two of the best preserved structures in the city. Then, head to the living crafts centre of Ock Pop Tok in the heart of the city. Follow along with your guide to learn about how the centre provides a place for locals to create sustainable and beautiful Laos' handicrafts and traditional artwork. After a stroll through the centre, kick back, taste the traditional Mak Tum Tea while enjoying the magnificent views over the Mekong River. Wrap up your journey with a visit to Big Brother Mouse, an organization devoted to promoting literacy in children and young adults. This is a perfect chance to strike up a conversation with a young local learning English before heading back to your hotel.
