Loved talking to the sweet kids at the Big Brother Mouse. They could share a lot of interesting information about Laos as well, so it was a good learning experience for me too. If I had more days available I’d go back again.
Highly, highly recommend volunteering an hour or 2 (or more!) of your time here while you’re in Luang Prabang. It’s such a simple way to give back and it means so much to the kids. They’re not taught much English in school and they’ll attend these sessions as their only way to practice English. Sometimes it may just be 1 on 1 with a local or you may have 3 or 4. It’s incredibly fulfilling and will make you want to never leave. Super casual so show up when you can and stay for as long as you can. Please go!
