Spend a morning on ourLIVING RICE FARM,Come and let us show you how rice is grown on our farm, experience the life of a farmer and try your hand at some of the activities. Or just view it all from the comfort of our traditional Lao rice house balcony, which is surrounded by rice terraces and our organic vegetable farm. All the family can join in and there are great photo opportunities. Our converted rice barn offers simple but comfortable accommodation for two, overlooking rice fields and mountains. Relax on the terrace and sample some of our home-brewed rice wine, walk to the ruined temple through our rice farm, be pampered with a massage then have afternoon tea, visit the local weavers who make our farm outfits before joining our farm family for a game of petanque or rattan ball! Watch or join in the preparation of the Lao dinner then dine with our farm family before you retire for the night (maybe after a Beer Lao or two?). Wake up to a brand new day and a typical Lao breakfast before joining the Rice Experience for the morning COST: 1-2 guests including lunch: kip 424.000 per guest Without lunch: kip 344.000 per guest We have reduced rates for families and children.

The best experience with the most fun for young and old. Well organized activity for all ages. We learned a lot about rice planting and harvesting. Highly recommend!

What a fascinating and fun half day we had on the tour. We loved that every stage of the rice cycle involved audience participation which was fun for people of all ages. Our guide was very good and the lunch was delicious. Highly recommend it.
