Laos adventure 10 days 9 nights

Laos is one of Southeast Asia's less visited corners, but those who do come make a beeline for Luang Prabang (City of the Buddha of Peace) at the confluence of the Mekong and Khan rivers in the mountainous north. The sleepy former capital is home to hundreds of saffron-clad monks who inhabit its more than 300 pagoda-like temples.  Throughout town, a languid air of serenity mixes with a new-found sense of stylishness. Of the growing number of chic hotels, many are housed in refurbished French-colonial buildings, and outdoor restaurants offer mouth-watering fusion dishes.

  • Day 1: Arrive in Luang Prabang
    • You will be welcomed to Luang Prabang by your guide who will take you to your hotel for an overnight stay. Once the heart and soul of the ancient kingdom of Laos, Luang Prabang is now a designated World Heritage-listed site.
