Peaceful, relaxing and packed with nature, Laos is the hidden gem of southeast Asia.

Float down the Mekong river, explore the tree lined streets of Luang Prabang, venture into virgin rainforest to find spectacular waterfalls, or sip wine and sample culinary delights left by the French. Laos is a delightful country to explore.

While Laos may have been overlooked by most tourists, the country is favoured by those looking to avoid commercial tourism and instead explore native forests, riverside villages and a colonial past.

Vientiane is a small riverside city with wide roads, historical buildings and glistening Buddhist temples. Visit Laos’ most important monument, Pha That Luang, followed by its own version of the Arc de Triomphe - the Patuxai monument.

Start to understand the forgotten history of Laos at the COPE museum, which works to offer prosthetic limbs and clear unexploded bombs dropped on the country during the Vietnam war.

Luang Prabang is the second biggest ‘city’, and offers charming streets and old colonial houses remade into boutique hotels. Surrounding the UNESCO city is the spectacular Kuang Si waterfall and the revered Buddhist site of Pak Ou Caves.

Laos is the perfect destination for honeymooners and travellers wishing to explore a lesser known region of Asia.

Featured Trips

Our Essence of Laos itinerary combines a little of Thailand and the north of Laos. Enter the country by cruising down the Mekong river to Luang Prabang, with an overnight stop at the hilltribe village of Pakbeng. Explore Luang Prabang and the Plain of Jars before heading to the capital Vientiane. For those who want to see more, our Laos on the Loose tour takes you across the north and all the way down south to the Bolaven Plateau and the Four Thousand Islands; an area of the Mekong which has split to form small islands.

When To Go

Laos has three seasons; cool, hot and rainy season. The best time to visit Laos is between November and April, with blue skies and temperatures ranging from 15-30°c. April and May are the hottest months, with the yearly monsoon rains falling from May until late September. Travel during the monsoons is more difficult, but the country blooms a bright green thanks to the rain. Lao New Year (Boun Pimai) is an enjoyable festival in April with parades, dancing and small scale water throwing as well as water pouring over Buddhist images.

Accommodation

In Vientiane, the boutique Salana hotel offers accommodation right in the heart of the city and opposite Wat Ong Teu. If you can get up early enough, you will see the monks in their saffron robes leaving the temple on their morning alms walk. A little further outside of the city, Green Park Boutique hotel is styled in Lao architecture and rooms look out on a tranquil swimming pool. The hotel has an attached Spa so Green Park Boutique is the perfect place to shake off jetlag.

A little north of Luang Prabang the luxurious Muang La Resort features 10 bungalows alongside the Nam Pak river. If you make it to the 4,000 islands then sleep at The River Resort, an eco-friendly garden resort, with riverfront villas and two infinity pools.
