Weekly featured member of the Experience Mekong Collection: Ma Té Sai – Luang Prabang, Lao PDR
Don’t miss Ma Te Sai if you’re looking for something authentic to take home, as a gift for someone or souvenir for your own mantelpiece. The shop sells items handmade by local villagers, so purchasing here allows you to participate in socially responsible tourism. Look for various home decor, cushion covers, accessories, recycled objects, cotton blankets, clothing, and woven bamboo pieces. The prices at the store may be a bit higher than at a night market, but you’ll walk away knowing you’ve helped a local artisan make a living.
