The Ultimate Laos Adventure Tour
17 days from £3,990 per person
Enjoy an extended tour of Laos, which has been designed to reveal the highlights of this delightful country. Crossing via its southern border from Thailand enter the Four Thousand Islands area of islets, rocks and sandbars to the far south of the country. The archipelago has stunning waterfalls, rare flora and fauna including a species of freshwater dolphin and a host of almost forgotten Khmer temples built long before Angkor.
Next, fly to the capital Vientiane with its impressive Wats and large markets. Next discover a world bursting with ethnic diversity and colour, rich with unusual tribes and customs in Muang La home to the Hmong and Iko people. Continue your journey surrounded by gilded temples, elegant monasteries, French colonial houses and saffron robed monks collecting alms in the enchanting former capital of Luang Prabang.
Travel on to Phonsavan, the gateway to the mysterious Plain of Jars, an impressive archaeological site where hundreds of large stone jars are scattered all over the plateau. Drive through limestone peaks and jungle to Vang Vieng before spending a night in Vientiane and flying back to London. This tour is purely a suggested itinerary. It can be booked as is or alternatively used as a starting point for creating your own perfect private tour of Laos.
