Birds often eat the rice crops grown by many Laos citizens, so over time they have perfected the bird trap to keep the birds away. In this course with a friendly local you learn to craft your own bird trap using bamboo and interesting techniques.

Meet your guide after convenient transport from your hotel. Listen to an overview on how the traops are made as well as why they are so useful to farmers in the area. Then, pick which 2 types you'd like to try to create and get started.

Watch the guide closely as they demonstrate the process of building the different types of snares. Weave bamboo together to create a net-like basket that ensnares the birds, or make a loop trap. This course is a fun and exciting way to experience a common cultural activity with a local guide to make for an authentic lesson.
