There are several art forms that are unique to this region and are based in local communities. In some of the tours listed here we have showcased local art made from banana fiber and water hyacinth. We pledge to you that this is not a scam forcing you to buy local art, there is no such expectation at all. We are taking you to a handicraft center run by the women folk of a village. This is not a retail showroom, you will be meeting the artists and seeing them at work. If you wish to buy something then you sure can, but there is no expectation. We include this in our tours so the traveller learns more about this art form, if the traveller buys something it directly benefits the local community.
There are several more art forms that we could showcase if we have a large enough group, see the section at bottom for more information on that. If you are interested in some of the other art forms listed at the bottom, then please contact us directly through email
