Tailor-made Laos Tours

Laos might not keep up with the tropical beaches or grandiose landmarks of its neighbouring countries, but the landlocked nation possesses unrivalled charms that mesmerise travellers in many ways. A certain serenity has enveloped the entire country, from the scenic jungle-clad limestones of the north and Luang Prabang’s picturesque UNESCO Heritage streets to the laid-back capital of Vientiane. Spared by mass tourism, Laos has managed to retain many of its age-old traditions, authentic culture and genuine smiles of the local people.

Vientiane, the country’s provincial capital, is home to a tick over 200,000 souls whereas Bangkok is touching ten million. It doesn’t offer a highlight to the degree of an Angkor Wat or Ha Long Bay. It’s overlooked. It’s a piece of space and solitude and serenity.

But these are the reasons why Laos is worth exploring – the country is highly rated among expats living in Southeast Asia. Lazy days wandering Luang Prabang’s UNESCO streets, where monks in gilded robes collect morning alms, or visiting Kuang Si Waterfall, where pools the colour of a clear sky beckon. Exploring, most likely alone, a vast plain littered with thousands of ancient jars. Kayaking amongst the limestone cliffs on the Nam Song River. Or just watching the Mekong life drift by in Vientiane.
