MONICA, YOUR HOST
An Austrian, Monica was born in Brazil, studied social anthropology and worked for many years with refugees and newcomers who came to Germany.
From 2007 she ran the JUMBO GUESTHOUSE in Hongsa, Laos and recently relocated to the new JUMBO GUESTHOUSE ON THE MEKONG in Ban Don Kao, Luang Prabang in July 2016.
“It was my best decision ever to move to Laos. I fell in love with this charming and still laid-back country.
Why? You have to slow down here to live a good life!”
Monica lives at the guesthouse and speaks German, English, Lao and some French.
She is happy to provide suggestions for things to do in Luang Prabang and Northern Laos.
She can recommend restaurants in town and things to do in and around Luang Prabang and answer your questions with regards to the country, its people, their cuisine and culture.
As a passionate foodie and host, I love sharing my place and my stories. I’ve lead an adventurous life. From Brazil to Austria and now, 12 amazing years in Laos. I’m an anthropologist...curious, positive and open-minded. I’m a woman who loves being a good host, sharing my interests in other cultures, art, theatre and classical music. I will prepare for you my renowned East-meets-West Tapas. 100% homemade, with fresh, healthy ingredients. Please join me for an unforgettable experience.
From the panoramic terrace of Jumbo Guesthouse, enjoy the mighty Mekong. Feel its energy, enjoy a sun-downer or a glass of wine. It’s been said that my place has the best sunset views in all of Luang Prabang... come find out for yourself! As the sunlight disappears, a myriad of twinkling lights transform the garden into a fairytale landscape – a perfect hideaway to spend an evening to remember.
