From the ancient temples of Luang Prabang and French colonial architecture of Vientiane to tubing through the caves of Tham Nam, Laos offers an abundance of adventures and provides you with the best of what South-East Asia has to offer.
This landlocked country sits between Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia, but is often missed off many travellers’ must-see lists. Laos’ rivers, majestic mountains, cultural heritage, wildlife and waterfalls will certainly work to keep your itinerary busy and adventurous.
See the jungle of Vang Vieng from above via zipwire and kayak along the Nam Song River for an activity-filled day. No trip to Laos is complete without visiting the famous Kuang Si Falls, boasting picture-perfect tiered waterfalls. For a quieter experience, make sure to visit the lesser-known waterfalls, such as Tat Somphamit and Khon Pa Soi Falls near Si Phan Don.
Looking for even more activities? Head to the north of Laos for trekking, rafting and mountain-biking too, in addition to spotting wild elephants, tigers and leopards in Nam Ha National Park.
