Overview
More
The Ock Pop Tok Living Crafts Centre is where the fascinating world of Lao textiles comes alive! Set in the grounds of a stunning tropical garden on the Mekong, it's the perfect place to learn more about this unique Lao art. We offer free guided tours where you can meet our weavers, artisans and even the silkworms. We also offer a range of classes in weaving and dyeing, which as our reviews show, are an unforgettable experience. Our Silk Road Cafe by the river is the perfect place to relax and enjoy our "east meets west" inspired menu, or simply enjoy the stellar sunsets with a refreshing drink.

I've arrived too late for the visits, but joined my family there for the sunset (and a drink) and it was really nice. The place is nicely decorated with Ock Pop Tok fabrics.More

Beautiful work being done. Interesting history. There are courses available which look to be very enjoyable. Finished items are available for purchase. Recommend purchasing items here rather than the night market. They are authentic Laos work from Ock Pop Tok or other regions in LaosMore
