Garavek Storytelling

Theatre in Luang Prabang

Garavek means 'magical bird', and this enchanting hour-long show – comprising an old man dressed in tribal wear playing a haunting khene (Lao-style lyre) alongside an animated storyteller (in English) recalling local Lao folk tales and legends – takes your imagination on a flight of fancy. Held in an intimate 30-seat theatre. Book ahead in high season.
