This is a beautiful farm which used to be most paddy fields, and Xay is now slowly introducing fruit trees and hopefully some animals to create a fully regenerative system and food forest. Here, you get to experience authentic Laos food made by his talented wife. There are lovely walks in the vicinity, where you get an amazing panoramic view of the area and also some awesome waterfalls. The bungalows built are so comfortable to sleep and relax away from the city, and this is the best place to fully disconnect.

I spent 3 unforgettable nights at Yensabai Organic Farm. I deeply admire what Xay has achieved, not only in the way he lives his life, but also for the positive impact he has on his local community. You will learn a lot about Lao cultural and agricultural life here and will have an experience like no other in Laos.

Please also consider bringing writing materials (such as pencils) for the local village schools as they are difficult to reach and are in dire need (make sure you buy the stationary from local markets to support local too).

Beautiful landscape, amazing home-cooked food, a cosy bungalow and great activities await you in this very peaceful and very special place. Thank you Xay!!

I came across Xay's website, and after reading about his ideals I was determined to find my way there. Take a boat from Nong Khiaw to Muang Ngoy and tell them to drop you off in Sop Keng, or hike there from either of the villages (Nong Khiaw, or Muang Ngoy). You will absolutely not regret it. Spend there a few nights if time allows and simply sink in to the environment; nature, food, silence, local village and above all excellent host. If you only have a day to spare, still go visit the waterfalls, and stop by for coffee or tea and to say hi to Xay!

I spent 4 days with Xay in his farm, as volunteer, this place is a haven of peace, a little place of paradise! Xay, is a lovely man whith a big heart and he built everything on his own!He also created real links with all the people of the village, everyone feels at home in Yensabai farm and help each other as he can! More than a break to drink a tea, it's a beautiful project and person to support! Thank you again Xay for your generosity and for what you are :)

Xay's farm is a peaceful and beautiful example of how to achieve a balance of tranquility and the work that it takes to maintain an organic farm in new and ancient ways. Xay is a welcoming, humorous, dedicated and loving host.

I had the most amazing few days staying at the farm. I turned up with a random guy I met on the bus and we were greeted with open arms. The food was incredible - so fresh! Being away from wifi was a blessing too. Loved the simplicity of everything. Thank you for an amazing stay!

We found this place in the middle of our trip, and decided to stay there for 4 days. This is the perfect place for travellers seeking a different place to explore. The ownwr-Xay, built this lovely sustainable home by himself, with the help of friends and family. Every door, handle, chair or hammock was placed with a lot of thought for it's functioning , along with some smart design. In those 4 days Xay made us feel more at home than our real home..with the best papaya pancakes, amazing food, long talks on the porch and some guitar songs (or was it just one song?...:)).
Doesn't matter if you are planning on volunteering for a few days and helping out with the farm (great experience during your visit!) or if you are just stopping by for some flower tea on your way to the waterfall ( highly recommended- located 20 minutes from the farm), don't miss out this lovely place! Take a walk around, see the different plants, fruits, vegetables and herbs, breath in the amazing landscape and sit for a talk with the friendliest guy in Laos.
