Immerse Yourself in Traditional Laos

Want to completely engage with the Lao culture? This half-day experience offers a taste of all things Laos, from a relaxing massage with a qualified massage therapist to a delicious lunch made with products directly from our farm. We’ll begin the first day by picking you up from the NamKhan Project office in the Luang Prabang city centre. If you prefer we pick you up from your hotel, please notify us at least 24 hours in advance or when you book the experience. From there, it’s a short drive to the NamKhan Project(opens in a new tab), our 1-hectare property facing the NamKhan River.

After arriving at the property, we’ll offer you a homemade welcome drink to sip on before choosing a traditional Lao outfit for your adventure. Wander through our tropical gardens on a guided tour and explore the village of Donkeo, known for its bamboo basketry workshops. You can take photos at Donkeo Temple to mark the occasion, if you’d like.

Once the photo shoot and tour are over, we’ll return to the NamKhan Project for lunch. Featuring traditional products mainly from our organic farm, this delicious lunch will fill you up before we head to the gardens for a bit of rest and relaxation. Enjoying the scenery until it’s time for your traditional Lao massage. Feel the knots disappear from your muscles as one of our qualified massage therapists helps you unwind. Take a deep breath and let the beautiful sights and sounds of this natural paradise calm your mind.

At the end of the experience, you can either spend more time enjoying the facilities or head back to the city centre on one of our many shuttles. We hope you had a pleasant stay and feel more connected to the Lao culture as a whole!
