It was a wonderful time for our family. We learned a lot about crafts, culture and cooking. It was very comprehensive and unique. Our 8 year loved it, especially the Bamboo dessert. I can’t recommend it enough.

Had an enjoyable half-day over at Bamboo Experience. Timely pick-up and we were transported to a tranquil estate of greenery. Good introduction of various bamboo tools and usage. Along with hands on experience of various activities. Ended the session with bamboo dishes inspired lunch.
