Start the trip with driving outside Luang Prabang, among lush rice fields and overlooked by wooded hills and mountains to join in a Living Rice Farm where they grow organic vegetables, salads, herbs and rice and supply leading restaurants and hotels in Luang Prabang. Here you will be shown how rice is grown on the farm, experience the life of a farmer and try your hand at some of the activities. Or just view it all from the comfort of traditional Lao rice house balcony, which is surrounded by rice terraces and organic vegetable farm. All the family can join in and there are great photo opportunities. After experience in the farm, we enjoy Lao specialty lunch in separate area overlooking their rice fields. We taste typical Lao dishes.
