Artisans du Mekong is a haven for visitors to Luang Prabang. Conveniently located across the Nam Khan, in Ban Nong Xai, or the area locally known as "the paper village", it can be easily reached by automobile, bicycle or even by foot from the downtown area. Re-opened and re-invigorated July 2012, there is a retail store supporting Lao communities, Ma Te Sai, as well as Artisans du Mekong showroom representing Lao and regional artisans. A gallery space has changing exhibitions showcasing local culture and traditions. Our courtyard cafe is a great place to relax, serving fair trade lao coffee, noodle soups, baguettes and home-made cake and ice-cream. Unique local products are made on site, one workshop is devoted to creating Spirit Houses and one soon to be home of Na Xao Botanicals.
