Luang Prabang: Rice Farm and Kuang Si Waterfall Tour

2. Luang Prabang: Rice Farm and Kuang Si Waterfall Tour

Learn what it takes to cultivate, harvest, and prepare rice before it’s ready to eat. This unique half-day activity takes you on an in-depth and hands-on learning experience, where you will participate in the 14 steps of the rice cycle.  The Living Land Farm, a community enterprise just outside of Luang Prabang, is an organic farm with educational programs located next to some rice paddies. Only small groups are able to join the interactive rice farming experience which actively benefits locals, maintaining their crafts in their traditional form. You’ll also learn about bamboo weaving, tool and trap making, gardening, and even blacksmithing. After a special rice snack at the farm, you’ll take a scenic drive along the Mekong River to have lunch at the beautiful Kuang Si Waterfall. You’ll have plenty of time to swim and take photos of the waterfalls, as well as stroll through the lush jungle. We pass the Lao Buffalo Dairy on the way back and you can stop and purchase ice cream if you wish. The tour concludes in the late afternoon when you will be transferred back to your hotel in Luang Prabang city.
