Laos Tours

Laos in Southeast Asia is a very vast country where the Mekong River is very decisive because it crosses almost the entire country. Besides the mighty Mekong River. You could say, to characterize Laos briefly, that it mainly consists of mountainous terrain, French colonial architecture, hill tribe settlements and Buddhist monasteries. It is like stepping back in time and there is no time pressure on daily life. It absolutely feels relaxt and wonderful here.

Vientiane, in central Laos, is the capital and mostly famous for the beautiful gold covered Buddhist stupa, That Luang. onument, is a gold-covered large Buddhist stupa where a reliquary reportedly houses the Buddha’s breastbone. Furthermore the Patuxai war memorial, which looks like the Arc de Triomphe and the morning market Talat Sao are worth a visit.

Luang Prabang, North of Vientiane, is for most visitors the best of Laos and the perfect place start exploring the Northern and Central part of Laos. It is more a village than a city atmosphere here and absolute worth visiting for several days. It is packed with natural and manmade attractions, including 33 Buddhist temples and often described as the ‘Jewel in Laos Crown’. It is to navigate your way around on foot to get an excellent feel for local life of Lao people and the monks here.

Just outside the town centre, you can explore lush jungles with miles of hiking trails leading to gorgeous waterfalls and limestone caves, meandering mountain-bike trails, kayaking trips, river cruises and outstanding natural beauty, the whole ensemble encircled by hazy green mountains.

Over the last 25 years Luang Prabang has seen a flood of investment, with once-leprous French villas being revived as fabulous boutique hotels, and some of the best chefs in Southeast Asia moving in. The population has swollen, and yet still the peninsula remains as sleepy and friendly as a village, as if time has stood still here.
