Laos Holidays

The laid-back people of Laos have earned their country a reputation as the sleeping beauty of South-East Asia. Isolated for decades, tourism is still very much in its infancy here. A traditional way of life prevails for the vast majority of Laotians and, even in the capital city, Vientiane, the pace of life is refreshingly unhurried.

The government is instigating a green approach to the country's development, with the intention of keeping Laos’ pristine ecological system as nature intended – set off on one of our tailor-made Laos holidays and we’ll take you to the most beautiful bits.

The country’s welcoming charm invites you to immediately immerse yourself in the culture and natural beauty. Unmissable highlights are the stunning temples of Luang Prabang, the Bolaven Plateau and – somewhat surprisingly for a land-locked country - the sleepy 4,000 islands of Si Phan Don, which are surrounded by the mighty Mekong River as it flows through southern Laos. The Plain of Jars in the north-east makes for a mysterious diversion into one of Laos’ least-visited regions.

There are also plenty of opportunities to get off that proverbial track, with some of South-East Asia's best trekking opportunities to be discovered in Laos north-eastern Phongsali region. Elsewhere, you can live in the tree tops, travelling over the canopy on a zip wire, or perhaps spend a night in a rainforest treehouse... the ultimate way to get closer to nature!
