A Day in the Life of a Local Rice Farmer

DAY 1 - A Day in the Life of a Local Rice Farmer

Get a peek into the life of a local rice farmer on this half-day trip into the peaceful Laos countryside. Travel from Luang Prabang to the Living Land Farm, a community project in Pong Van Village. In response to the destructive use of chemicals and pesticides, several local families combined their land and adopted alternative farming methods to grow organic rice, vegetable and herbs. Nowadays, the farm even sells their produce to restaurants and hotels, whilst also supporting the local community through a range of projects, including education for underprivileged children.

Surrounded by idyllic mountain scenery, spend the morning in the beautiful rice fields where farmers plough, plant and harvest without the aid of machinery. Get knee deep in the mud, help plant rice and get the opportunity to steer a water buffalo to plough the field. Pick fragrant herbs and colourful vegetables and learn to husk rice the traditional way.

There is always plenty to do on a farm, so lending a hand is not only appreciated by the local farmers but will also provide invaluable insight into local life in rural Laos! Of course, it’s not compulsory to join in the fields, it’s also possible to take a break on the veranda and watch from afar.


The farm is also home to a basket-weaving workshop, a blacksmith and a traditional wooden sugar cane juicer. Witness the craftsmen at work and have a sip of the refreshing drink before relaxing at the farm’s restaurant. Be rewarded with a delicious lunch, reaping the benefits of the day’s hard work, and enjoy a selection of traditional Lao dishes amidst the peaceful countryside before returning to the city.
