Like its neighbours, Laos spent much of the latter years of the 20th Century hidden from the outside world. Today visitors encounter a simple society with a strong spiritual tradition where the pace of life is as languid as the Mekong River that flows through it. Towns are less hectic than elsewhere in Asia, the countryside combines beauty and tranquility, while the temples, though not as grandiose as Angkor, exude serenity and character.

This privately escorted tour by air-conditioned car combines UNESCO World Heritage, the local way of life and beautiful landscape. In Luang Prabang you’ll take to the road and explore the main sights by bicycle; you’ll also visit a nearby village school; travel by boat down the Nam Ou River to the Pak Ou Caves and swim in the topaz pools of the Khuang Si Waterfall. Fly to Paksa, a mountainous area famous for its many waterfalls and where the rich soil of the region is cultivated for coffee, tea, cardamon and bananas.
