tour description

Immerse yourself in a fascinating half-day authentic Lao Pottery and Village Experience. This excursion provides a behind-the-scenes look at ancient skills and techniques. English speaking locals, who know the village best, lead either a morning or afternoon tour. Pick up is from the hotel and guests are transported to the Pottery village (approximately 30 minutes).

Begin with a tour of the village and learn about traditional Lao life. Then observe as the artisans demonstrate the pottery techniques they use. After the demonstration, roll up your sleeves, get hands-on with the clay and have a go at making a piece! For kids, pre-made pots are available to paint.

Whether you choose the morning or afternoon workshop, a traditional Lao meal made from local ingredients is on offer. Savour the delicious specialities and chat with the local villagers about life in the village.
