The villagers working in the group are very friendly and love visitors. They don’t mind if you take photos or videos.
Compared to other similar groups around Thailand, this is a very small co-operative with a tiny courtyard. They don’t speak any English, so communication is challenging.
I wouldn’t make a special trip to Loei to visit the group, but if you are in Loei, it is an interesting attraction.
