Small Group Tour Itinerary

2017

DAYS 1-2: VIENTIANE
On arrival in Vientiane, transfer to your hotel. The country's riverside capital is full of alluring monuments. Taste traditional Lao coffee at a local coffee shop in the morning, and then explore some of the city's most famous landmarks, such as Wat Sisaket, Wat Pha That Luang and Patuxai. Explore the COPE Centre and learn more about its role in helping victims of ordinance left over from the tragic ‘Secret War’, and visit a weaving workshop to learn about the importance of textiles to Lao culture. In the late afternoon, receive a unique welcome in a traditional Lao baci ceremony in a local home.

Hotel: Mandala Boutique Hotel

DAYS 3-6: LUANG PRABANG & PAK OU CAVES
A short flight brings you to the fabled riverside town of Luang Prabang. Take a walking tour of beautiful Wat Mai and the Royal Palace, then participate in a fun cooking class in a beautiful rural setting. The next day, savour a traditional Lao breakfast and French coffee at an eatery frequented by your guide. Explore the city's famous sites on foot, including Xieng Thong, the tip of the peninsula and the Royal Palace jetty. A boat trip to Pak Ou Caves unveils a vast collection of Buddha sculptures spanning many centuries. Return to Luang Prabang for free time. Rise early to witness the ancient ritual of local monks collecting alms at dawn, then visit a morning market. Visit the scenic Kuang Si Falls and learn the art of making sticky rice and grilled chicken – your own picnic lunch. End with a game of petanque and sunset drinks. Enjoy a farewell dinner before departing the next day.

Hotel: Sala Prabang

Meeting local people.
Feeling welcome wherever we went.
Luang Prabang accommodation is primitive, old fashioned with virtually no storage space. We understand the reason, in this old 'protected' city, but travellers need to be aware.

The two local guides in Vientiene and Luang Prabang were both excellent - they had a vast knowledge of Laotian history and no question went unanswered. There was also a good deal of variety with the activities - cultural, historical, etc.
The standard of accommodation was very poor compared to the price paid for the tour. Very disappointing and I wouldn't travel with Insider Journeys again for that reason
