Laos is the least populated of the Indochinese countries, and perhaps the most beautiful. For years a little visited destination, Laos is one of the most scenically and culturally rewarding holiday experiences in Asia. Mountains, jungles and the Mekong River dominate the landscape. Devoutly Buddhist and largely undeveloped, Laos offers travellers an opportunity to experience rich traditions, natural beauty and a sense of Asia as it once was.Our journeys to this intriguing country include time in Luang Prabang – a perfectly preserved blend of rustic colonial architecture and gilded monasteries – and in the laid back waterside capital city, Vientiane.
This year we are pleased to introduce the ‘Inside Laos’ journey, offering travellers the chance to travel from north to south through a diverse array of scenery and cultures, by boat and by road. Many of our past travellers have chosen to combine their Laos experience with time in Thailand and Vietnam by traveling with us on the Bangkok to Hanoi or the Thailand and Laos Experience journey.
