LUANG PRBANG MISTERY


The Ancient Town of Luang Prabang in the center of northern Laos has been described as one of the most charming and best preserved towns in Southeast Asia. There are 34 Buddhist temples among Luang Prabang's colonial and Chinese architectures, all set in a backdrop of lush green mountains. The Mekong River frames the town's western border, and it remains an important commercial and recreational transportation link.

We meet Ms. Ting who has inherited her hand-weaving skills from her mom almost 30 years ago, and who now teaches young Laotian women a valuable skill. After a short visit to her workshop we enjoy a home-hosted lunch cooked by her younger sister Mrs. Bounkhong who also teaches cooking at a college in Luang Prabang. We have lunch on a hand-made bamboo terrace by the Mekong River, another memorable experience and a taste of real Lao traditions.
Early afternoon we make our way to the famous Khouang Si waterfall. A short walk and visit to the Bear Sanctuary are on the menu first before we have time for a relaxing swim or some relaxing by the water’s edge.

All classes give an insight into the culture of weaving. The aim is to provide the student with weaving skills and put weaving in a social context. Working alongside local weavers, this is a fun opportunity to immerse yourself in local culture. The knowledgeable English speaking assistants are the link between you and your weaving teacher. The students gain technical skills whilst feeling an emotional connection to the weavers around them.
