The village of Long Lao Mai is 45 minutes away from Luang Prabang. It is also the village where the first Eco Bungalow was opened! (Find out how you can visit the Bungalow following the links below!) Fair Trek has partnered with this community for years and our relationship is stronger than ever. The community gets financial benefits for all the customers that stay in the Bungalow. Each visitor also pays an entry fee and a village fund. The village fund works as a community bank account for savings and the community get together to decided what to do with this money. This time, the community decided to invest it in making their community house better and put a fence around it. This prevents mud, animals and strangers to come into the community meeting house making sure it is in good conditions when the community need it.
