Full description
After pick-up from your hotel, transfer to Kok Ngiew village to discover the charming beauty of Laos’s true life and locals. Start off with a traditional rice husking activity, using a traditional mortar like the locals.

Take a tour of the village to see local life and then hop onto a tuk-tuk to the host’s rice farm. With your host, learn all about hunting crabs and collect the available vegetables at the farm to prepare for lunch. After savoring your home-cooked lunch, visit a local pineapple farm, pick some of these exotic fruits, and see the pineapples are cultivated (mid-May to mid-September).

Finally, discover how rice is planted at your host's farm, and find out how they control the wildlife on their farm, before you head back to your hotel at around 3:00 PM.
