About This Trip

Surrounded by the wildly popular countries of Thailand & Vietnam, Laos is often overlooked by many travellers, its immensely rich highlights overlooked by people seeking out south-east Asian experiences. To us, this makes it the perfect place to travel to! Untold riches lie in wait for those who travel to Laos and this tour captures them all. 

 

Laos is home to ancient beauty that you simply have to see to believe. Your first stop is Luang Prabang, itself one of the most beautiful cities in the world, having received UNESCO World Heritage status for the whole city due to the sheer volume of golden wats that make up the backbone of this wonderful city. Otherworldly, architecturally unique and filled with intensely friendly locals, and unique gastronomy. Luang Prabang is just one of the jewels that make up the crown of Laos. 

 

You will take in the capital of the country, Vientiane, arguably the most laid-back city you will ever visit, where time takes on its own rhythm. Here you will not only take in its most incredible sites, temples and stupas but will spend some time with COPE, an amazing rehabilitation charity that helps victims of unexploded ordnance, regain their confidence and way of life. 

 

But it is not just the wonderful cities you will see on this trip, we want to take you out to rural Laos, to experience the wild, untamed nature and visit rural communities to see what day-to-day life is like. You will experience grand waterfalls, and ancient battlefields with some of the most breathtaking scenery in the country, and visit hill tribes to see how the old ways are still in use in this diverse and beautiful country.

Other Info
highlights

Laos is filled with hidden wonder and the true joy of this trip is the insider knowledge of your local guide. They will lead you through cityscapes like no other, showcase scenery that will be emblazoned on your brain for all time and bring you so much closer to the people, and culture than you would ever be able to do on your own.

 

Laos is a cultural joy! It is a country where people thrive, with happiness at their core. Where adversity is there to be overcome and strangers are soon to be friends. It truly is an inspirational place and taking a little part of this home will make some little wonderful changes to your life. 

 

On a more physical front, the ancient temples of Laos are outstanding. In every city and even in the most unexpected rural spot, you will find ancient beauty. Again, your guides are indispensable here, providing you not only with all the knowledge you need but actually leading you to spots where not many other visitors go. The reverence to Buddha in Laos is almost unparalleled and you will enjoy every inch of the intricate designs and artworks woven into the fabric of every temple.
