Landlocked and laid-back, Laos has always been considered one of the hidden gems of Southeast Asia. Located in the heart of Indochina, it has somehow managed to avoid the touristic attention received by neighbouring Cambodia and Vietnam, and remains untouched by modern demands. Its beauty lies in the gentle Lao people, century-old heritage, and its lush, pristine landscapes. It’s a land of mountains, mists and untamed natural beauty, making it one of the few unspoilt destinations in the region.
This trip showcases the hidden charms of Laos, from its rich paddy fields, fertile valleys and striking mountains to the mighty Mekong River. Visiting enigmatic sites such as the Plain of Jars, remote caves crammed full of Buddhist icons, thought-provoking community projects and a plethora of natural wonders, we’ll explore every facet of this fascinating country.
