I love to hunt out arts and crafts on my travels, and even better, actually give making something a go. There’s already plenty to do in Luang Prabang in Lao including basket weaving, pottery and embroidery (onto Hmong slippers) but of course for me the papercrafts were the first thing I went in search of. Close to Luang Prabang is the village of Ban Xang Khong. Here they specialise in manufacturing and selling products made from silk and Saa Paper (paper made from the bark of the Mulberry Tree).
