After breakfast, we head out of the city and make our way to Nam Ngum Lake, a huge reservoir created by damming the Nam Ngum River. We'll stop over at Ban Keun, which is famous for its salt extraction plant and a village that distills the local Lao whiskey. On arrival at Nam Ngum Lake, after having lunch at local restaurant, we embark on a long tail boat visiting fishing villages in the various islets, and then take a short walk to explore the lifestyle of the local fishermen. On the way back to Vientiane, if time permits, perhaps you might want to experience gambling at the legal Lao casino located in the valley where you can also enjoy a beautiful view of the lake. We return to Vientiane by late evening.

In this class you can learn how to dye textiles using natural pigments and then weave them on a traditional loom at the Houay Hong Vocational Training Center for Women. The NGO group, run by a Lao-Japanese woman, established this center north of Vientiane to train disadvantaged rural women in the dying art of natural dyeing and traditional silk-weaving practices. Visitors can look for free or partake in the dying process. You keep the fruits of your labour.

Lao textiles are internationally renowed for their quality and patterns. Recently international designers have discovered this and started working with Lao textile motives and materials. A well known example is American designer Carol Cassidy.
