Is your idea of travel about fun, adventure, but also a way to give back to the locals in any way possible? This tour gives the best of it all.



Day 1: The tour starts from the capital city of Vientiane where we will visit famous temples and learn about Laos culture. We will also visit famous landmarks, museum and parks. I will take you to the COPE visitor centre, which showcases the work of disabled people and helps raise awareness about various disabilities among locals. We will have lunch in a local restaurant and experience local cuisine. We will end the day with a riverside park and see how locals spend their time and then go to the famous night market and explore shops with local handicrafts.

Day 2: We will leave early for Vang Vieng. There we will enjoy adventure activities like kayaking and river tubing. We will visit some caves and have a picnic lunch there. We will also trek to some villages and experience tribal life there. For dinner we will again have local food in the town nearby. We will also walk around the town and watch the city life to understand local culture. We will spend the night in a homestay on an organic farm.

Day 3: We will start the day in the organic farm. We will see the local produce and see how it is processed into tea, jam, juice etc. We will also visit a goat farm and see how goat cheese is made. Then we will visit a local school to interact with children. Further we will visit the Laos Youth Centre for cultural exchange with the local youth. It will be rewarding to understand their lives and contribute by sharing your own experiences. Overnight we will stay in the organic farm homestay.

Day 4: We will travel back to Vientiane.

Hi! I am a local tour guide in Loas. I believe in the power of local culture and how it can help in empowering people and bring them together. The exchange of thoughts and sharing experiences is what I enjoy most about my work. I am always eager to meet new people and show them the wonders that Laos contains.
