Bamboo Weaving


You might have noticed large woven bamboo rubbish baskets on the streets of Luang Prabang. Many of these come from Ban Done Keo, a small but charming village located close to Ban Phanom. Here you’ll find locals sitting outside their homes with piles of stripped bamboo branches that they weave together using various patterns to make large baskets. This is not a tourist village by any means, so don’t expect any signs pointing you in any particular direction once you arrive…it’s more for the traveller who enjoys strolling around and seeing how local people make a living using traditional means.

The time is depends on their works, normally start from 09:00am to 16:00pm every day, they make in their own house no entrance fee.

To get to Ban Done Keo, turn left onto a dirt road after Ban Phanom about 2 km.
