In Orchid island, residents lead a plain and hardworking life without rapid pace. The lifestyle here is casual and simple, which would make you feel time passes slowly. If you want to find somewhere to relax, there are many pavilions that are surrounded by the sea. Although the reception is unstable, people will get close without using phones.

The Highlight

Traveling is a best way for tourists to get closer to our earth, instead of only taking pictures. We learn the lifestyle of residents and see the mountains and the sea through their viewpoint.

And then, we live with the elders in the tribe. We work like Tao people, we eat like Tao people, and be Tao people for a day.

The culture of Tao, the breathtaking scenic, the agriculture, flying fish, and the lambs running everywhere, all of these are what make Orchid Island so fascinating.

Day 2

- The real life in the tribe

We will do activities with residents in the tribe - " Iraraley "

We follow the guide, who grows up in Iraraley to know the culture of Tao people. From the beach, to the boats and the traditional house, maybe you will not receive a professional guide, but the stories she told are the real lives in the tribe and they follow all the rules last from ancient time.

- Traditional lunch box of Tao

when the men go working in the mountain or beside the beach, they will bring this kind of food for lunch.

- Find the secret places

We will bring you to some secret places where are not known by the tourists nor the residents. Let's go exploring and clean the beach at the same time.

- Sea for the women

Residents grow many taros in Orchid Island. People in Tao say that "taro fields" are the sea for the women. Taros also play important roles in Tao's culture and lives. We will walk in the taro fields without wearing shoes and help taro farmers weed the fields. It's a special way to learn the knowledge about Tao and make you have strong connection with the lands.

- Dinner time

The third night, we eat at "home". The elder in Iraraley will invite us to have dinner in their house. They will prepare tasty dishes for us. The ingredients may not be expensive or delicate but all from Orchid Island and all dishes are full of sincere and enthusiastic.
