Spend a morning on ourLIVING RICE FARM,Come and let us show you how rice is grown on our 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 our traditional Lao rice house balcony, which is surrounded by rice terraces and our organic vegetable farm. All the family can join in and there are great photo opportunities.

    Our converted rice barn offers simple but comfortable accommodation for two, overlooking rice fields and mountains. Relax on the terrace and sample some of our home-brewed rice wine, walk to the ruined temple through our rice farm, be pampered with a massage then have afternoon tea, visit the local weavers who make our farm outfits before joining our farm family for a game of petanque or rattan ball!

  Watch or join in the preparation of the Lao dinner then dine with our farm family before you retire for the night (maybe after a Beer Lao or two?). Wake up to a brand new day and a typical Lao breakfast before joining the Rice Experience for the morning

Had a great time today (weekend afternoon session, 6 people). Super friendly students who the farm are helping support through school welcomed us to the farm, took us step by step through the process of cultivating/harvesting/preparing rice. Got down and dirty in the muddy rice field (wear clothes you don't mind getting dirty) and enjoyed some great rice snacks and... More

I spent 2.5 weeks in southeast asia and never would have guessed that farming in a rice paddy would be my favorite experience. The reviews are right - this place is awesome. You learn everything you've ever wanted to know about rice. If that sounds boring, it's not. It's all hands on, which makes it fun. In my party we... More

This was one of the best tourist experiences I have ever had. For US $43 we learnt the process of farming rice with everyone invited to participate in the process. I can not recommend it enough . A must do when you come to this town.

Friends had recommended doing the Living Land experience - 'It's way better than it might sound'. So we did. It was exactly as they had indicated - better than expected. Educational, entertaining and one of several attractions we experienced in Laos that offers young people employment and a chance to improve their English. It cost US$50 each and that included...

The 14 stages of rice from selecting seeds to eating + a bit of black smithing, bamboo weaving and sugar cane extraction. Then to top it all a game of kick volleyball. Be prepared to get muddy as you plough a paddy field with a water buffalo and plant rice shoots. One of the best things to do in Luang... More

I'd do this again in a heartbeat. The staff at Living land are friendly, knowledgeable, have a good sense of humor as well as a great command of English. You will be pushing, pulling, shaking, tossing, folding and spinning as all activities are hands-on and each step thoroughly explained. It's a great place for young and old who enjoy getting...

We only had 2 1/2 days in Luang Prabang so wanted to make the most of our time. We were a little skeptical at first as sometimes these demonstrations are just that with a focus on selling. But upon looking up the high rating on trip advisor decided to give it a try. We spent a 1/2 day here (we... More
