These are their cash income generating activities. Moreover, their traditional food, Thai Lue homestay, traditional show and Baci ceremony are the most enjoyable things that you can share together with them (at least once in a life time). 


Let’s discover this Ban Nyor village, situated 57 Km from Xay Town on the road to Pakbeng in the economic corridor between China in the North, Vietnam in the East and Thailand in the West.  This unique location provides lots of economic as well as touristic opportunities.
        Ban Nyor is a long time handicraft production village and the activity consists of pottery production, cotton processing, natural color dying and basketry. 

 These activities are recognized as cash income generating sources for them. Pottery production: Pottery has a long history in Northern Laos, and for centuries people have produced bowls and jars. All pottery is handmade, in former time the pottery was just produced for family use, but with the increase of tourism the product range was expanded several new products including flower vases, candlesticks, decorated bowls and jars with different sizes based on the market demand.


 These products will be sold to hotels, questhouses, restaurants and local traders. Cotton processing: The warm climate makes cotton to grow well. Most of the cotton is processed into twin, colored, woven and sewed in the village. All steps are always done by hand and no chemicals or other ingredients that can’t be found in the village are used. Therefore, there is now a chance for tourists who are interested in local handmade products can discover and experience the Lao way in producing handicraft products. Basketry: Basketry is a bamboo product and Lao people have been producing this kind of bamboo handicraft for thousand years mostly just for family use and it’s now turned into family business to generate daily cash income. Tourists can also experience how to study and make different types of these products by learning from the local producers in Ban Nyor and hope they can bring these lessons and experiences back to show their families and friends.
  Thai Lue Homestay: There are home stays available there in Ban Nyor, so visitors can stay overnight there as long as they can (20,000 Kip per night). Just to spend your time at least once with the local Thai Lue’s life. You will see what you have never seen before.
