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

Laos has many epic landscapes, such as the Kuang Si Falls

Lying quietly under the tourist radar, Laos is a country of jungle adventures, riverside relaxation and rich cultural traditions - perfect for those who like to take the road less travelled.

The Peaceful Charm of Luang Prabang

A trip to UNESCO World Heritage City Luang Prabang is an escape into another world. At dawn, watch apricot-robed monks complete the alms-giving ceremony, then take a tuk-tuk to the fairytale pools of Kuang Si Falls. Stay in boutique hotels and dine in intimate restaurants, set in colonial Indochinese villas.

Vientiane’s Mix of Modernity & Tradition

Southeast Asia’s most unlikely capital is packed with temples, museums and monuments, which give context to Laos’ fascinating history.

Indulge in French-inspired pastries at sophisticated Gallic cafés, step barefoot into the capital’s impressive collection of Buddhist temples, and then climb the stairs of the iconic Patuxai Monument for stunning views of the city.

Be sure to visit the COPE Centre to learn how UXO (unexploded ordinance) from the Vietnam War has impacted the lives of the Lao people.

Your Laos Holiday

Laos offers a humbling backdrop of epic landscapes and a myriad of authentic cultural experiences.

Take a slow boat along the Mekong to Pakbeng, where tribal visitors sell textiles and handicrafts, or participate in a homestay at a remote Hmong village. Admire the Buddha statues in the Pak Ou Caves and explore the mysterious Plain of Jars or trek the Bolaven Plateau and splash in the waterfalls of the Four Thousands Islands.

For even more Southeast Asia adventure, combine Laos with neighbours Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand for a tour of history, culture and diverse cuisines. 

Unspoiled by tourism and with so much to offer, now is the time to visit Laos.

Read what our customers say about their trip with Wayfairer

“This is the second time Wayfairer has planned a trip, the first being a Safari and we will definitely have them plan another trip. Our journey to Antarctica exceeded our expectations".

"This was a dream trip I had thought about for years and somehow they managed to exceed what I had hoped for. Could not have asked for more."

"An outstanding experience with Wayfairer, Cat and Juan helped to organise, and manage, an amazing safari for a group of six. Their meticulous planning, endless enthusiasm and huge knowledge of the area meant that we had a truly unforgettable experience, we even had a fabulous birthday party in the middle of the Mara. The highest recommendation is that we plan to use Wayfairer again and again!"

"This was my second trip with Wayfairer - my first (to Africa) was so amazing, I was worried that I would be disappointed.....not a chance. Once again, the itinerary, the guides, the little touches, were superb. I am already thinking about what trip I will have Wayfairer plan next! For anyone trying to decide where to go - Peru was absolutely amazing! It may be one of the most under-rated countries. Machu Pichu was breathtaking, but there was also so much more to see and do....let Wayfairer take you on amazing journey!"
