Discover the art of Lao cuisine at our organic farm, and the local market. Surprise your friends and family upon your return, with an exotic gourmet experience which will leave a lasting impression.
Our chef and his team will accompany you to the market, where you will learn to choose ingredients, and then cook the regional dishes that you'll enjoy during your stay at The Sanctuary Pakbeng Lodge. Lessons can accommodate 16 people.
Nothing brings people together more than a game of "pétanque" and it provides an opportunity to mingle with the local population.
We therefore invite you to the "pétanque" field, which is the most popular in Pakbeng.
Good times are guaranteed but beware, the local Lao Lao (rice whisky) and beer are always flowing!
Thirsty for tradition? We are offer a Baci Ceremony, organized as a welcome by the shaman of Pakbeng and the people of the village.
Perfect occasion if the Sanctuary Pakbeng Lodge is the first step of your journey in Laos. In this case we are going to put the spirits on your side!
According to Lao tradition, each person is looked after by 32 souls (khouan) and the Baci aims to bring these back to the body and attract beneficial influences. The Baci ceremony is performed at all important events in a person’s life.
