Making a positive impact on the lives of local people is a key theme running through this seven day journey in Laos. We begin in the Asia of old at the World Heritage city of Luang Prabang with its temples and museums whilst also enjoying a cooking class of authentic Lao food at the classy restaurant, Tamarind. Having some fun with a Big Brother Mouse book party will support child literacy, whilst a Royal Ballet performance is a great introduction to Lao artistic culture. After getting close to nature with a mahout course at Elephant Village, who focus on the protection and rehabilitation of their animals, we head to the capital city of Vientiane, its unique Buddha Park and café culture and take the opportunity to find out more about a restaurant, Makphet, that provides hospitality training for disadvantaged youths. This is a brief look at the highlights of Laos and an opportunity to encounter the genuine warmth amongst its people. Find out more at http://www.hanuman.travel/Tours/Laos/Good_Cause_Laos.html.
