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

It gave us real insight into all the work that goes into producing it using traditional ways. Chili was our guide- he was excellent. We left something there and they were kind enough to drop...

It was a hot, sticky day but we almost didnt notice as we were so engrossed in the experiences offered. Thoroughly recommend this to anyone visiting Luang Prabang. Even just walking through the slippery mud around the rice paddies gave us a new sense of respect for what the Lao people do every day to survive. The Living Land company... More

I've been traveling for a month all over SE Asia. This was the best thing I've done! I went with a friend and there were eight of us total. The staff is amazing and the kids who work on the fun are fun to play with. They teach you all about the steps of making rice and you get to... More

Really impressed by the living land farm - yes, it's a bit on the pricey side for backpackers, but it was worth every penny I thought. The farm is just stunning, and learning about the traditional methods of rice farming was both fascinating and fun. Our guide spoke great English and was incredibly knowledgeable and kind, and very considerate of... More

Must include this in your itinerary, even if you are in LP for a day. They can arrange a hotel pickup, and the fixed price of the 4-hr tour is 344k (USD 45). The tour starts at 8 am (takes about 15 minutes/ 5 kms from LP city centre), and takes you through 14 steps of rice cultivation- end to... More

We took our two teens on this excursion for a change of pace and a look into the life of locals. Boy- was it eye opening! We come from a rice farming community ourselves, but in Laos it is still all done the primitive way. Our guide was Camlao (I'm sure I butchered that), and he was great! His English... More

This was one the highlights of our trip to Laos. Definitely a must if you go to Luang Prabang! We spent the whole morning with Khamla.
