  • Amazing place to visit for an afternoon lunch, happy hour, views of the Mekong river, sunset and a tour of the fair trade workshop where artisans from nearby villages come and weave silk fabrics and get paid by the articles they make. The experience overall was 5*! Drinks were superb, service was so friendly, prices were down to earth and views were heavenly.
  • Very quiet and peaceful place. Free information tours take place every half hour (15 minutes long) There is a restaurant and a bar with an amazing view and very reasonable prices. The view on Mekong is very beautiful and I recommend to have a nap there !!! The staff is also friendly.
  • Beautiful centre for local Lao craft! Join the free tour, very informative!
  • It's a great way to see the weavers by the river without acting like a tourist. The guides there are great and will answer any questions you have without any other interpreter being required.
  • See the steps in processing silk, purchase their products or sign up for a workshop to make your own silk creation. Enjoy delicious food in their cafĂ©, all via a free tuktuk from their town store. Perfect way to spend a few hours.
