From Hanuman
The Traditional Arts and Ethnology Centre is a welcome addition to the cultural scene in Luang Prabang. It offers the visitor an indepth insight into the lives and livelihoods, the culture and traditions, the beliefs and practises of the many ethnic minority groups that inhabit Laos. Explore the collection before settling down to enjoy a coffee or a cake on the patio terrace. Fair trade handicrafts are also available.
