Laos remains happily untouched, with so much action taking place along the rivers. I recommend waking up early to watch Tak Bat, the daily almsgiving ceremony where monks receive sticky rice from locals.

Victoria & Jack

We’ll never forget our time in Luang Prabang, it’s the most wonderful place. We spent three nights of our honeymoon here waking up to the smell of coffee and croissants; exploring the jungle temples; shopping in the night market and so much more. It’s such a special place and we’d never have thought to include it without Katie’s advice and encouragement. Thank you.

Why We Love Laos

From

Katie

Scenery

Feast your eyes on the unspoilt nature in Laos. When travelling around Laos, there is plenty to see. 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 40 metre 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, a mixture of Animism and Buddhism, and their purpose is to ‘call back’ your own spirits to your body and stop them from escaping.

Local Hill Tribes

We can navigate you through the dense jungle, where you can immerse yourself into 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

While you won’t stumble upon a beach in Laos, due to the variety of landscapes and scenery within the country there are a range of activities you can do. With the vast rock formations around Vang Vieng, you can try your hand at rock climbing, and in Luang Prabang the best way to get around is by walking or exploring by bicycle. Venture deep into the jungle for the Gibbon Experience, where you can spend nights in treehouses and zip line between the houses exploring more of the jungle.

These properties won't necessarily offer all of the typical luxurious facilities, but will always provide memorable experiences, from camping out in the bush to climbing up to a treehouse.
