Laos is the undiscovered gem of South East Asia. It’s an emerging destination developing quickly but still retaining much of the tradition and culture it holds dear. Beautiful, pristine and relaxed, we journey from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok into the peaceful mountains and jungle of Luang Namtha. Trek to hidden hill tribe villages, glide on aptly named slow boats to the timeless capital of Luang Prabang, and discover ancient temples and the amazing sight of Buddhist shrines tucked into limestone caves. We’ll visit the mysterious, remote Plain of Jars, the old French railway at Don Khong and the 4,000 island Delta with the possibility of seeing Irawaddy River Dolphins. We also spend time in the sleepy capital Vientiane.
Combine Laos with Vietnam and Cambodia to discover the jewels of Indochina, or add in Thailand to experience the highlights and contrasts of South East Asia. If you’re feeling adventurous, book the pioneering Bangkok to Hanoi tour and journey on the newly opened Thailand / Laos railway through northern Indochina, or travel through the heart on Beyond the Mekong.
