Why we love Laos

The latest insight from our time spent exploring Laos.

Scenery

Feast your eyes on the unspoilt nature in Laos. Throughout Laos you have a range of scenery in which to explore. Dense Jungles, Caves, great mountains, rivers, limestone cliffs and rice fields. This is one of the hidden charms of this magnificent country, still relatively untouched and undiscovered.

Culture

Laos has a fascinating Buddhist culture, with many temples and ceremonies common to Laos. You can see the famous Buddha Park with over 200 religious statues and sculptures including a 40m high Buddha, The Great Stupa which is the most sacred monument in the whole of Laos. There are also ceremonies common to Laos called the Baci which is a mix of Animism and Buddhism, and their purpose is to “call back” your own spirits to your body because they sometimes escape.

Local Hill Tribes

We can navigate you through the dense jungle, where you can immerse yourself in to the locals way of life to experience the Akha tribes in their richest and most natural form. The best places to experience these hill tribe villages are around Muang La, Muang Khua and Nong Khaiw.

Adventure & Sports

Due to the variety of landscapes and scenery within Laos there are a variety of activities you can do. With the vast rock formations around Vang Vieng you can do rock climbing and in Luang Prabang the best way to get around is by walking or exploring by bicycle. Deep into the jungle you have the Gibbon Experience where you can spend nights in treehouses and zip line between the houses exploring more of the jungle.

Laos Highlights

These itineraries cover routes and places that are particularly popular with our guests and are designed to inspire. Every single trip we create is tailor-made and highly personalized to meet your specific requirements.

Luang Prabang

Luang Prabang

Luang Prabang is described as the Jewel in Laos Crown. Surrounded by both the infamous Mekong and Nam Khan River, a lot of It offers a fascinating glimpse into Buddhist religious practice and traditional lifestyle of the various hill-tribe groups in this northern region of Laos. One of those small cities with atmospheric and charming personalities, Luang Prabang has topped the Top City category in Wanderlust's annual travel awards several times in recent years.

Vientiane

Vientiane

Comparing it to other Asian big hubs we know, the capital of Laos, Vientiane resembles a small village rather than a busy crowded city. This just shows how charming and relatively undeveloped Laos is. In Vientiane, most of the sightseeing can be done by foot, bike or by hiring a Songthaew. Giving you a village vibe rather than busy city feeling gives you a lay back notion famous for it’s ‘Please slow down joke’. The city offers a great choice of accommodation, restaurants and pavement cafes adding a French air with their style of architecture which contrast pleasingly with the old Buddhist temple dotted around

Champasak

Champasak

Set in stunning natural surroundings, Vat Phou, the ancient Khmer temple complex, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, is the main attraction in the area.

Muang La

Muang La

Muang La is 28km from Udomxai in the North of Laos. It offers a rural alternative to the city, sitting on the confluence of the Nam La (La River) and Nam Phak (Phak River), surrounded by palm trees. Muang La hosts one of Laos' most admired Buddha Statues, the Pra Singkham Buddha.
