Included in this price is a donation for our social projects. Our staff puts a lot of time in facilitating construction of new schools for children in a remote area (have a look at our project page). Your stay is a contribution for the children without a school. We give a discount of 10% for a stay exceeding 1 week.
OMPLETE LAO EXPERIENCE
"the only way to experience a true Lao life style"
We prefer that our guests also choose for a complete experience just as our long-term volunteers do. This means that you join our team by having all meals together. This is only applicable for guests staying in our Fairstay. We only charge your direct cost related to benefits below.
Cost: 45.000 Kip / person / day
What is included:
Our staff takes guests to wedding, village festivals and other activities organized by the local people or communities. If you have questions about Lao culture you are at the right place, please ask our staff. We hope that you leave as family rather than as a guest. If you are lucky and you arrive at the right time you might be able to participate in one of the activities.

We are tucked away in a local village called Phonpeng, but it is only a 5 minute walk to Vang Vieng center. Our building is a typical Lao middle class building. The building has a clean and spacious kitchen with sufficient equipment. We provide all meals you are free to use this kitchen to prepare your own meals. Where else do you get the opportunity to live as Laotians, go to the fresh market buy your own ingredients and prepare your meal.
Eating alone is never delicious (Lao proverb)
Daily we prepare food for long-term volunteers and staff. We encourage our guests to have their meals together as Laotians do. We eat Lao style sitting on the floor, but we are more than happy to provide table and chairs if you wish. Read our "complete Lao experience" chapter to participate.
PARTICIPATE IN OUR ACTIVITIES
If you wish to provide your time useful we invite you to assist our staff or long term volunteers executing their duties to achieve our goals. This can go from helping at our farm/garden, building a school (or other projects), teaching English, …. Ask our staff how you can help when you arrive. It is impossible for us to organize this without being part of our "complete Lao experience".
