Sabaidee! My name is Markus and I live in the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage town of Luang Prabang. In 2007 I started my own company initiative because I saw an opportunity for the tourism sector to support remote villages around Luang Prabang. Laos is still a hidden paradise and I believe it is essential to take care of this fragile heritage. We aim to do this by generating alternative income from tourism for local residents, engaging in cultural exchange between tourists and locals, promoting education, and developing infrastructure together with local residents.
