Local Tastes and Traditions
Participate in a traditional Baci Ceremony at a local house. The ceremony of Baci can be held on any day throughout the year and is meant to commemorate specific events in an individual’s life such as a marriage, birth, festival, or even to honour visitors and guests of importance.
After the Baci experience, head to an area in the city centre where locals gather in the evenings to play their favorite game, Petanque. This game originated in the South of France in the early 1900’s and is played widely across the country. Join in a game with a local group. As a way of saying “thanks”, surprise them with some snacks and “Beerlao” that we’ve brought with us.
Afterwards, head back into town to enjoy a typical Laotian dinner at a local restaurant.
