Discover More About Laos


A land-locked country, Laos is dominated by the mighty Mekong River which flows through the western flank of the country. Rural and largely undeveloped, life here carries on much as it did hundreds of years ago and there are a myriad of sights and experiences for the traveller. For many, Laos is defined by the sleepy riverside town of Luang Prabang with its historic temples and UNESCO protected core. From here travel north to visit remote minority villages or head south to the enigmatic Plain of Jars and capital city Vientiane. In southern Laos the spectacular temple complex at Wat Phou and waterfalls close to the Cambodian border are a particular highlight. Cruises can also be taken on the Mekong River either north to Thailand or in the area surrounding Champassak. We have over 25 years’ experience planning tailor-made holidays and tours to Laos.

Customer Testimonial

It is the fifth major trip that you have organised on our behalf, all of which have been a great success. However on this occasion you have excelled yourself. It was an excellent mix of destinations and experiences. Each was unique in itself and we find it difficult to identify which was the highlight of the trip. They all were!
