WELCOME TO LAOS

Overview: With untouched nature, a gentle culture, and a refreshingly simple take on life, Laos lets you explore temples, relax on the river, go on active adventures through the rice fields, soak up traditional village life, and leave feeling rejuvenated and completely at ease. Travel back in history as you watch Laos move into the future. As one of the least densely populated countries in South East Asia, Laos offers a special blend of traditional culture and unexplored nature. Its wild and mountainous jungle-clad interior is a Mecca for adventurers and nature-lovers alike.

The mellow riverside capital city of Vientiane looks much the same as it did decades ago when it was still a sleepy outpost of colonial French Indochina. With a gentle culture and friendly people, it is easy to slip into relaxed explorations of this refreshingly simple lifestyle.

Wake up at sunrise to feed the saffron-robed monks, meander through the temples of the ancient royal capital, Luang Prabang, or make your way into the heart of the forested mountains for some active adventuring in beautifully tranquil Laos.

LUANG PRABANG

Luang Prabang: one of the most beautiful places of South East Asia and top destination of Laos. Being the formal royal capital of the Lan Xang Kingdom until 1545 and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Luang Prabang is considered by many the heart of Laotian culture. The town has what it takes to make your time worthwhile and will continue to leave great memories in your heart afterwards: the former royal palaces, over 33 Wats (temples), the old town, French historical architecture, nature with Mekong river and waterfalls…
