The Kayah Sausage Experience

This tour takes you into the home of one of two Loikaw Kayah sausage producers, willing to offer international and national visitors a safe and unique cooking experience in Kayah State. You will discover and experience the process of making the original Kayah sausage and taste the subtle balance between spices!

Introduction to the “Kayah Sausage Experience” in Loikaw: This pilot initiative is managed by two local Kayah Sausage producers, with close support of the International Trade Center (ITC), which aims to enrich your experience of Kayah culture and social life.

Departures: The tour can depart on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 8:00 to 12:00 AM, with a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 6 people, so that you receive personal attention. Variations of this tour are available to suit your requirements.

Price: Each group pays a fixed charge of US$ 15 for the price of the sausage ingredients (2 to 6 people), plus US$ 5 per person for the cooking class (2 hours). This tour can run with a minimum of two or more participants ( the minimum cost is US$ 25). The price includes local tea, all sausage ingredients and the guidance and explanations for the cooking class by a local master of Kayah sausage!

Itinerary: A local sausage producer will welcome you and introduce you to cooking Kayah sausage with plenty of flavour. The experience includes:

  • A presentation of the Kayah Sausage recipe and its ingredients including discovery of the unique Kayah Pepper;
  • A creative experience, as you will personally prepare, cook and taste your own Kayah Sausage;
  • A visit to the adjacent garden where you can discover local plants.

How this activity makes a difference: The Kayah Sausage experience takes you into a unique and delightful environment, and allows you to share part of the life of local households. The sausage making families are passing down traditional recipes. Providing cookery experiences for tourists helps to provide additional income for the sausage producers, and keep these delicious recipes alive.
