One of South East Asia’s most delightful destinations, Laos is a place where cultures, cities and countryside collide to produce somewhere special. Discover thick jungles and emerald mountainsides, where timeless rural lives with stilt houses and paddy fields appear untouched by modern times.
In the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Luang Prabang, witness the ancient tradition of alms giving as hundreds of vibrantly clad monks glide through the streets at sunrise, or behold the sights and sounds of the city’s bustling Night Market, alive with richly adorned stalls. Beyond the city streets of this former French colonial town lies outstanding natural beauty, awash with striking waterfalls, meandering trails for trekking and mountain biking plus kayaking trips and river cruises. Journey up and down the mystical Mekong River on a traditional teak boat, taking in ancient ruins, scenic islands and waterfalls along the way.
It is little wonder travellers of all ages and interests fall in love with Laos. Subterranean caves, rocky topography and thrilling jungle zip wires lend themselves to adventurous pursuits for thrill seekers. Authentic local cooking classes burst with spices and regional ingredients for foodies, while the country’s diverse mix of ethnic groups offers scope for wider cultural interaction, plus an array of exotic wild animals for nature enthusiasts. Amid all of this lie luxurious hotels and idyllic retreats that are home to blissful surroundings and tranquil spas.
