Two hours from Luang Prabang is my wife's home village called Ban Mouang Suan. This authentic village is lost between the “Ou” river, the most beautiful of the whole country, infinite rice fields and mountains. It regroups 2 different ethnics, khamu and Lao Loum. Till today most of Kham's family is still living here. We will take a small boat to get to the village. Most of the village people are fisherman or farmers and live from the environment. You can see chicken roaming freely around and children playing. If you are looking for an off the beaten track, unique place then this experience will definitely suit you. You really can become part of local life and help in their daily chores. Stroll around in the village, see the farmers at work, eat local food made by Kham, visit the local school, temple and go fishing with the family.
You will sleep the local way, on a mat on the floor or on a thin mattress. Shower time will be daily at 5pm along the river with the other villagers but you can also use the indoor bathroom anytime. The family doesn’t speak English, but Kham can help you communicate with them. Your food can be arranged on request with Kham or you can also eat the local way. They don’t eat meat or fish daily but plenty of rice, plants, roots or vegetables.
