    Why not make a difference this holiday, and support the women of Houey Hong?

    Houey Hong, located in Vientiane, offers visitors tours of the Centre, and introductory sessions in the use of natural dyes and silk weaving.

    The Centre offers half and full day tours, with visitors able to dye their own silk scarf or try traditional Lao weaving.

    Weaving and dyeing activities are suitable for all ages, with no prior experience necessary. Lunch and transport to the Centre can also be arranged.

    Prices start from 70,000 kip to dye your own silk scarf. Open Monday to Saturday 8:30am-4:30pm. For more details check out the Houey Hong website at www.houeyhongcentre.com.

    The Houey Hong Vocational Training Centre for Women also provides training and employment for Lao women from disadvantaged backgrounds in the areas of natural dyeing, traditional Lao weaving, tailoring and small business administration.
