About This Trip

To discover the culture of any country in a short space of time is a terribly difficult thing to do. Often one has to spend months discovering the rhythms of the people, exploring the variety of the cuisine and uncovering those hidden spaces. We have worked with local experts to try and provide this immersive experience in just four amazing days which can be a great addition (or centrepiece) to any South East Asian itinerary.

 

You will fly into Luang Prabang, the capital of Laos and with your local guides, your magical experience will begin. This city is immediately stunning, an almost unreal seeming voyage into another world filled with colour, immense architecture and intensely friendly locals. The city itself has been designated as a UNESCO world heritage site due to its 33 golden wats.

 

Your first full day of adventure, however, will lead you away from the city. To understand the country more, you have to experience what happens in rural Laos. Your first stop is going to be a combination of discovering farming culture, with an up-close animal experience as you visit the local buffalo dairy, where you get to help treat these humble giants to a spa treatment. 

 

You will also visit the truly breathtaking Kuangsi waterfalls, where you can cool off in the deep milky turquoise waters and gaze up at the tiers of sublime cascades above. And just to underline this day of nature, you will pop into a sun bear sanctuary, to see these adorable little bears being rescued from the wildlife trade. 

 

Then it is the intense exploration of Luang Prabang, one of the world's greatest, but largely ignored cities. After an early rise to interact with the local monks, you will be treated to an insider tour of the city with your local guide, hitting all the must-see wats, but visiting a few locals-only spots too. You then finish up the day by embarking on a street-food stall-crawl that will baffle your taste buds and leave you filled with gastronomic joy.

highlights

Luang Prabang is truly one of the most spectacular cities on earth. Think Florence, Italy in all its breathtaking grandeur, through the lens of a completely different culture. The same reverence and glory in the painstakingly created, hand-made architecture, but bursting with colour. We want to show you this city as you could never see it on your own, to really dive deep into the big blockbuster highlights and the tiny details that really make it unique. 

 

And this exploration is not just of the physical beauty, but the cultural wonders that this city holds. You will interact with the delightful locals, participate in local traditions and feast on some of the most diverse and delightful cuisine on the planet. You will leave in love again, mirroring the wonders of Italy, you will discover a way of life that sticks with you, a joy for the everyday that you will carry home in your heart, and that we feel is the ultimate reason to travel.
