Taking classes in laos and vietnam

Posted by MariaT on 23/7/2009 at 09:38

Hello everyone!

I am planning a 1-2 month trip to laos and vietnam. I am trying to find out if there are any places in these countries that are offering any sorts of courses besides cooking, language or yoga classes.

My idea for this trip is less traveling around and more finding a nice laid back place to stay for a longer period of time and exploring the surroundings and the culture little by little. I have seen posts about different courses one can do in ho chi min and in hanoi, but from what i understand these cities r very busy and noisy, and im not a city person, so i would like to find something smaller and surrounded by nature, so i could easily take go on short treks.

I am especially interested in possibilities of taking classes in local arts and crafts, but i would be glad to hear about anything at all :) Also, if i find a workshop somewhere, is it possible to ask them for some sort of a private arrangement (im willing to pay of course), or is it very uncommon, and maybe even unacceptable?

So if anyone has any ideas at all, ill be really glad to hear. Maybe someone has seen any posts anywhere in guesthouses or met someone who did something of that sort?
