Sens Asia Travel: Luang Prabang, Laos
With already 20 years in the business, you can trust Sens Asia Travel to provide you an exclusive insight into destinations across Asia. Recently, the travel agency introduced its first full immersion package for Laos named “Get to Know the Locals”, where you will be paired with a local family to allow you to enjoy the full Luang Prabang experience. This three-day trip includes learning about ancient customs and traditions like Tak Bat, an alms giving ceremony of the Buddhist monks.
You will also have the opportunity to attend Hmong Batik classes, join a friendly game of Petanque, as well as enjoy a traditional dance show and a Garavek performance — the stage interpretation of the esoteric Laotian art of storytelling. If you’re a foodie, you can embark on a food trip by trying the different Laotian street foods with locals or simply take cooking lessons. With its range of activities, Sens Asia Travel will not only take you to beautiful places, but also work closely with local communities to preserve the artistry behind the visual magic you don’t get to see as a tourist.
The three-day, two-night “Get to Know the Locals” journey to Luang Prabang is priced at USD375 per person. Opt to extend your trip for USD54 per night.
