Vientiane
The Culture Week is the perfect way to learn more about Laotian people, culture, customs, language and so much more. During this week, you will visit all the highlights of the amazing city of Vientiane, which is completely different from most of the other capital cities in Southeast Asia.
The Culture Week will kick off with an introduction to Laos customs, do’s and dont’s and Laotian language classes. Further in the week you will try your hand on local agriculture practices, meditation classes by a monk, Laos cooking classes, hiking, a picnic amongst nature and more! Furthermore, during the week there are also hours reserved for playing sports (soccer and volleyball) with local people/students.

The week acts as an introduction to Laos culture, but also as the perfect platform for meeting and bonding with fellow volunteers. We strongly recommend that you join the introduction week before partaking in one of the other projects in Laos. However, the Introduction Week is not a mandatory requirement.

During the day trip to Vientiane you will visit the beautiful Victory Monument, the Golden Pagoda, the Cope Center and Mekong River/Night Market.

Accommodatie

Your accommodation is tucked away in the countryside of Laos allowing you to get a true taste of Laotian sceneries with rice fields and lakes. Rooms are shared between 4-6 people on a single-gender basis. The bathroom facilities are shared with cold water showers and Western-style toilets. Bed linen are provided, but please bring your own towels. The rooms are equipped with fans and mosquito protection. No Wi-Fi is available.

Lokaal vervoer

Arrival transfer is included. You will be met at Vientiane International Airport by one of our representatives and taken to the volunteer accommodation. Our staff member will be waiting for you in the arrival hall as you exit the main door of the airport. The airport is very small so it is almost impossible to miss. Please note that you may need to wait for other participants to arrive before the group leaves the airport. The arrival transfer is only available on Sundays and Saturdays. If arriving on a Saturday, you will need to book an extra night of accommodation.

If you are traveling to Vientiane overland from Thailand or elsewhere in Laos, please be sure to meet us at the following meeting point on Sunday at 12:00 (noon): The Amazon Cafe on the corner of Quai Fa Ngum and Chao Anou Road.

Maaltijden

Three meals during the day (breakfast, lunch and dinner) are provided and will generally take place at the accommodation and project site, unless stated otherwise. We offer a variety of western and delicious Laotian dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner accompanied by fruit. Please note that during the weekends only 2 meals per day are provided (brunch and dinner). Water, coffee and tea are available at your accommodation.

Please inform us of any dietary restrictions or intolerances during your application. However, we need to stress the point that you should not expect to eat as you normally do at home. We will do our best to see that you are well taken care of, but also as a volunteer, there is a need to be flexible and accommodating to the local food.

Houd er rekening mee

Facilities
You can find simple groceries and beverages sold in two local restaurants located next to the accommodation. There are also a few locals shops a three-minute walking distance away. Moreover, there is a local market located a 10 minute walking distance away.

There is also a lake-side makeshift restaurant just for us, where you can enjoy the evenings and order Western or Lao food at reasonable prices.
There is a pool located next to the accommodation, which you are welcome to enjoy for a small fee. Moreover, we have a sports area where you can play football or volleyball with other participants! The house is surrounded by rice fields and lakes, which you can take advantage of through activities such as swimming and boat riding.

There are bikes available for you to use to explore the area during the afternoons. The closest ATM machine can be found on the main road to Vientiane, approximately 5 kilometers from the accommodation. Therefore we advise all participants to bring some local currency with them for personal expenses, although you don’t need a lot of money when you stay with us. Participants can exchange money or use the ATM at the airport when they arrive. Vientiane is located about 25 kilometers away and it is very easy to reach via public transport from our center and back. Anything that you might need can be found there, with its numerous shopping malls, a cinema and local markets to explore!
