“Very enjoyable show”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2013

I didnt know what to expect. At 7.30pm little girls came to the stage and the fashion show started. 5 minutes earlier we received a short explication about the different ethnic groups in Laos and the role of women in making traditional cloths, which was interesting and helpful. The show was nice: an intelligent mixture of tradition of East ( Lao ethnies, cloths) West (the stage, the fashion show, and the music). And the girls and the guys can earn some money spreading out their culture.
After this, 6 guys performed street dance very well for other 20 minutes.

Shows are from Thursday to Saturday. I can just recommend it, the price of food and beverage of the Hive Bar are not more expensive than others.

“Great Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2013

Why not enjoy a little culture with your beer! The Hive's prices were a little high, so eat before. The fashion show started 30 minutes later than advertised.

“Excellent presentation of 100+ traditional costumes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2013

Fantastic night! Great costumes presented with style by village girls who are being educated in Luang Prabang. The hip hop show following the Fashion Show was full of energy, skill and fun. Our group of 8, ranging from 12 years to 50 loved the night. There was no charge but we enjoyed our meal.

We really loved seeing these gorgeous girls in their traditional costumes and the wedding ceremony. Then we were amazed by the breakdancing boys. Great night out

“Something different”

It was interesting to watch (for a time). Nice to be there and have a drink and eat but it wasn't anything to write home about
