Meeting locals and learning amazing stuff at Backstreet Academy
Backstreet Academy is an amazing platform that connects all the local masters who are great at what they do (think wood carving, boxing, fishing etc) with tourists. Your experience will be a very intimate and unique one you will not get anywhere else. A social enterprise, the revenues go directly to supporting the local master's crafts and livelihood while benefiting local students who will act as your translators. A well conceived social enterprise with really cool experiences! I personally loved the knife-making and crossbow courses in Luang prabang the most.
