Laos Honeymoons

It might not be one of the first destinations that springs to mind when you’re planning a honeymoon, but overlook Laos and in our opinion you’ll be missing out on one of the most exciting Asian destinations to travel in right now.

Isolated from visitors until relatively recently, it offers a truly authentic slice of South-East Asia before the tourists arrived. Expect an unspoiled land of mountains, valleys and jungles, where tranquillity rules, and villagers go about their life as they have for centuries, orange-robed monks line up to receive alms. It's the perfect antidote to hectic wedding preparations. 

Turn the clock back just a handful of years and the infrastructure, such as roads, airlinks and the selection of hotels, certainly left a little to be desired. That, however, has all changed and Laos, with its charming array of boutique hotels and rural lodges, has found its place amongst the neighbouring Asia heavyweights of Thailand and more recently Vietnam. Footfall nonetheless remains low, and this is very much part of this country's charm.

 

Why choose Laos?

  • Luang Prabang is likely to be right at the top of your list of must-sees, so consider heading to the wonderful UNESCO-protected town first. It’s the ideal place to unwind after excitement of your wedding but an equally good choice for further into your honeymoon if a more suitable fit for your overall travel plans.
  • Those seeking some light adventure activities, such as cycling, trekking or time on one of Laos' stunning waterways, will most likely head to Luang Namtha, the region around the superb Muang La Lodge or Vang Vieng.
  • Just a few hours beyond Vang Vieng, a great base for caving and kayaking, is Vientiane, the country’s languid capital city. Overlooking it because of the obvious allure of Luang Prabang is often a mistake in our opinion and those with enough time should certainly consider a couple of nights.
  • Further south still, top of your list should be Si Phan Done, better known as the ‘4,000 islands’, where you will be amazed by its natural wealth and the even more relaxed pace of life. There are several excellent properties for honeymooners there, ranging from the superb Kingfisher Eco Resort (elephant sightings guaranteed) to La Folie, on the opposite banks of the Mekong from Wat Phou in Champasak. 

'If you’re looking for an adventure on a road less travelled, in a land that is the very definition of laid-back, Laos could be the honeymoon destination for you...'
