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

What can I say about this once in a lifetime experience?!? We loved every minute of our homestay, from the farm & village tour with Xai, planting our own organic vegetables, picking our own organic vegetables for dinner that night, teaching English to the 10-15 year old village kids with Long Lee (a second year university student who has lived/worked...

The hospitable team at the living land, led by Mr. Lao Ly, created a scenic place where you can connect to the land, get your hands dirty ploughing the land or planting paddy rice and imagine what it means to be a Lao farmer. Simple, tasty meals are served and a lot of information is shared. There is also a... More

The tourism industry in Laos is in its 'teens' yet. But they are using the most native activities to attract tourists. The rice sowing activity conducted by Living Land Company is one of them. They take you to the rice fields and show how they/ or you can /work in the fields for the activities right from cultivating the land... More

Read here some reviews about the cost of this activity, it's true - it's not cheap but nobody forced you to sign up and second, the money helps support the local farmers and you gain some valuable knowledge about rice growing - a win win situation. Our guide was a lovely student named Kamla that showed us the 13 stages... More

La was great, and it was a wonderful experience not only to see the hard work that goes into making sticky rice, but also to see a small village working together to survive and educate their own. The co-op of 7 families help to keep their farms running off of educating tourists on farming technique, and also uses the tourists... More

For two persons the total price was 656.000 KIP. Having paid that price for an experience lasting about 3.5 hour, my hopes were extremely high. Sadly, I was greatly disappointed when we got picked up by a low-on-equipment tuk-tuk and its angry driver, filled to the rim of others going somewhere else. At arriving at the farm, things certainly improved... More

I was told by one tour operator that they didn't have rice farm tours in the dry season. Luckily, I checked with a larger agency and was able to book it! You spend half a day with an intern (ours was Long who has been with Living Land Company for 7 years) and you get to learn the 14 steps... More

So we were a little sceptic given the price of this experience, but it really was worth it (you also help people)! You learn everything abuot the different stages of rice farming, but hands on. It just was fun! We later on in a different part of LP also recognised some of the machinery we were introduced to at the... More

jump into the muck and handle a water buffalo to plow the 'field' for the next rice crop (it'll all wash off). You can learn a lot here from how the seeds are planted to harvesting and all the stuff in between (thrashing, sorting, you name it - all backbreaking work). When you arrive you're given a cone shaped hat... More
