Visit us in Laos
Big Brother Mouse is based in Luang Prabang, the former capital of Laos and a UNESCO World Heritage site. This is where we produce our books, and we're happy to show visitors what we're doing. Stop by if you're in town!
At our bookstore you can buy books to take when you visit villages in Laos, or bring our bilingual (Lao and English) books back home as a unique gift for kids. It's a great way of introducing them to another culture. Most books cost just 10,000 to 20,000 kip each (about $1.20 to $2.50 U.S.). Additional donations are welcome. While you're in Luang Prabang, there are also other ways for you to get involved.
To reach our shop, walk down the main street of Luang Prabang. From the Night Market area (with the National Museum on the left, and Phousi Hill on the right), walk towards the end of the peninsula. Take the third left (not counting small alleys), it is immediately after 3 Nagas Restaurant. We're just two houses down on the left. You can volunteer here at our English language drop-in center or buy books.
Have you made a donation to sponsor a book, or a book party? We hope you can see what you've made possible. Please see our attending a book party page.
Open every day except 1 January, 8 March, Lao New Year (about 14-16 April), 1 May, 1 June, Boat Race Festival (lunar-based 1-day festival in September), 7 October, 2 December.
