Overview

The Ock Pop Tok Living Crafts Centre is where the fascinating world of Lao textiles comes alive! Set in the grounds of a stunning tropical garden on the Mekong, it's the perfect place to learn more about this unique Lao art. We offer free guided tours where you can meet our weavers, artisans and even the silkworms. We also offer a range of classes in weaving and dyeing, which as our reviews show, are an unforgettable experience. Our Silk Road Cafe by the river is the perfect place to relax and enjoy our "east meets west" inspired menu, or simply enjoy the stellar sunsets with a refreshing drink.

It was fine but if you only have a few days not worth it. It was interesting to learn how silk is made from a worm, but not really worth the trip.More

Everything about my 3 night, 4 day stay was superlative from the gorgeous grounds, to the attentive staff, wonderful food and great courses (natural dyes, Batik and weaving). So much to see and do. The master weavers are true artists!
