Drying Bamboo Flower Reeds - Luang Prabang, Laos

We saw people collecting and drying bamboo flower reeds throughout northern Laos. Apparently, they are for export to Thailand where they are used for making pillows, car seats, cushions and other products. For the villages in Laos, it's an easy way to make a little extra money during the dry season, as forests here are full of bamboo. Read more about the three levels of hill tribes we encountered on this trek.
