Bamboo Experience in Luang Prabang
The Bamboo Experience is a local family run workshop where you will discover Lao culture through bamboo products, activities & Lao foods using bamboo shoot as main ingredients. You will also be connected with our local community to learn about their way of life!
The Bamboo Experience’, a rustic pavilion modeled on a traditional Lao house, perched in a picturesque setting next to rice paddy fields. Enjoy an introduction to the importance of bamboo to Lao culture and to the used of bamboo in a diverse range of household items found in rural Lao dwellings.
During today’s experience, you will engage in a relaxing bamboo weaving activity, where you’ll weave a souvenir mat made from strips of the bamboo plant, using a technique which has been practiced for centuries.
After learning about the importance of bamboo and how it’s used to make everyday items in Laos, we get hands-on again for fun, interactive cooking class, using the bamboo shoot as a key ingredient. Make dishes such as bamboo shoot soup, bamboo shoot steamed in banana leaf, and bamboo shoot dip and more. We wind down the day with a delicious meal (made by you), and photo opportunities of semi-rural Laos, from the relaxing pavilion terrace.
