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.

Fabulous waterfalls.
Fabulously laid back.
Locals are so friendly and happy to see you.
The cuisine in the restaurants we went to seemed to get a bit repetitive by the end, whereas Laos food in fact has far more repertoire than that.
