Laos Holidays

Experience tranquility in the rugged beauty of enchanting Laos

Intriguing landscapes and charming culture are waiting for you to explore, and they’re just part of what makes a Laos holiday so unique.

Travel to Laos and plunge yourself into a captivating land with a pervasive sense of magic. It’s there waiting for you to uncover in the beauty of its mountainous coffee plantations, in the mighty Mekong river, and in the legends of the mysterious archaeology-strewn plains.

Explore charming hilltop towns where monks clad in saffron robes still walk the streets, collecting alms as they’ve done for centuries. Observe how French architecture still mingles with local styles, a reminder of the country’s colonial past and strikingly at odds with the signs of Buddhism all around you. The charms of this truly rewarding country and its gentle people will quickly beguile you on your unforgettable Laos holiday.

Luang Aprabang was a highlight for us. We organised ourselves to go to The Women's Vocational Training Centre in Vientiane to do tie dying of a silk scarf and enjoyed that very much.

Everything was memorable. A good mix of sights and activities. My guides and drivers were so considerate and polite but we were still able to have fun! I was glad to have traveled along the Mekong when the water was low.Quite unbelievable to think that the water would cover all the rock formations in the river and the planting at the side of the river after the rains came. The temperature was high but not a mosquito in sight!!!
