Laos remains one of the most attractive countries in South East Asia for those looking for unspoilt, off-the-beaten-track travelling. This beautiful, landlocked country is famed for its mountainous landscape, thundering waterfalls and welcoming people. Neighbouring Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia, it’s a wonderful destination on its own or as part of a much larger tour.
The capital city, Vientiane, lies alongside the Mekong River and will charm with its relaxed way of life and wonderful French colonial architecture. Luang Prabang, a UNESCO World Heritage city, is easily the most popular destination in Laos. With its ancient temples, traditional wooden houses and distinctive way of life, you get the feeling that nothing has changed here for hundreds of years. Enjoy a cruise among 4,000 islands, wander among the 10th century Vat Phou Temple complex, or hike to the impressive Tad Fane waterfall.
Whether you want to explore the countless ruins, trek in the mountains or simply take in the beauty of the country, we can advise you every step of the way.
The trip was great – we loved Laos and everybody was really helpful. … Our only regret is that it wasn’t longer.– A. Gurr
