My name is Khamla Duangmala. I have more than twelve years of experience in educational and adventure tourism. I used to organise school trips and do community service all over Laos. In 2019, I had a chance to collaborate with the local government on turning Sayanthan district into an attractive tourist destination. That’s how a tour company called “Golden Compass Tour Laos” was founded.
With the assistance of the government, we have established a long-term plan that aims to attract travellers from all over the world.
The district is also a home for the Prai minority ethnic group. Prai people moved from Cambodia to Laos more than 400 years ago. They will be happy to show you how they grow rice and tea at the foot of the mountain. You will have a chance to explore their culture and live a peaceful life in the highlands of Laos, at least for a while.
It is a great pleasure to invite you to the Sayanthan district! It’s time to explore. It’s time to live!
