Fishing for Your Lunch in Laos

January 5, 2018 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , ,

In Laos fishing is still a way of life for many communities living along the banks of the mighty Mekong River. Join us for a tour that brings together the skills of local fishermen and hands-on fun preparing and cooking a fish-BBQ lunch on the banks of this magical waterway. Applying a technique called net casting you will use a traditional circular throw net to catch your fish. The day begins with a trip to the market and then on to a local village famed for its bamboo weaving skills making traditional baskets and fish traps for local fishermen. Here you also board a traditional longboat with a local fisherman for this unique fishing trip – a chance to prove you have some talent in this age-old fishing technique! After you have had some practice and hopefully caught your fish, the boat will head for a sandbank where your BBQ lunch will be prepared. Once on land, you can opt to help out with making the fire and preparing your meal, or alternatively, take a refreshing dip in the river, relax and simply watch life go by. The afternoon ends with a 30-minute boat ride back to Luang Prabang, enjoying the tranquillity of the riverside landscape.
