Overview
You'll discover vivid nature, voluptuous landscapes and a vibrant culture on this intriguing six day tour around Laos. This is a country with an optimistic future which cherishes the many traditions that have disappeared in a frenzy of development elsewhere in the region. There's still a timeless quality to rural life, where stilt houses and paddy fields look like they are straight out of a film set. Here you find a country untainted by mass tourism . . . Asia in slow motion.
Day 1
Arrive Vientiane
On arrival in Vientiane you are met and taken to your hotel. Located on the Mekong River and with a population of 600,000, Vientiane is Laos’ capital and largest city. In spite of new developments, it retains an ‘old world’ feel unlike other Asian cities. Enjoy some free time to meander along the waterfront promenade, visit Talaat Sao market, or simply relax by the hotel pool and settle into the laid-back atmosphere. This evening, meet your tour leader and fellow travellers for a drink and briefing.

Day 2
Vientiane - Vang Vieng
Explore the charming capital starting with a tuk tuk ride from your hotel to the iconic Patuxai Monument. Walk down Lane Xang Avenue, stopping at the morning market and visit Wat Si Muang and Wat Si Saket, before stopping at the Presidential Palace. Get re-energised with a Lao coffee and croissant at Chao Anouvong Park and visit a series of temples before reaching the Mekong riverbanks. Then hop on your tuk tuk and ride back to your hotel and prepare for your journey to Vang Vieng.
