Then a short walk on a narrow village lane brings you to Mr. Ba’s family. His hospitable greetings and tasty local cake will make you feel immediately at home. His family members are happy to share the local cake making procedure. Join them, try to make a local cake on your own under their enthusiastic instruction. Enjoy tea with honey and dried coconut while chatting with them about their daily routines, local culture, customs and why you don’t let a local fortune-teller tell you what is supposed to happen in the future. Lunch is served with Mekong specialties at Apricot Riverside Restaurant.
