Laos Holidays


Laos holidays soon have travellers settling into the slow pace of this laid-back land. Whether joining locals for a game of petanque or offering alms to monks, the genuine warmth of the people of Laos is striking.

Landlocked Laos is often overlooked for its more famous beach-clad neighbours, however the spectacular landscapes, sparkling temples and secluded charms rival any in Asia. Tranquillity abounds in the languid villages and even the cities feel more like laid-back towns. The Mekong meanders by, setting the slow pace with life blooming along its fertile banks.

Buddhism is an integral part of the culture in Laos and blossoms in the ever-present golden temples. Laos is home to a diverse range of ethnic minorities and a unique cuisine, and even seasoned travel find a sense of wonder here. It is a serendipity for those seeking an Asia not often found these days.

Perth, WA Couple
Local guide, Phouvy, was very knowledgeable re history and culture. The hands on cooking and weaving at the Bamboo Experience was a highlight as was the visit to the Kuang Si Waterfall and the Bear Sanctuary.
Siem Reap has no shortage of Buddhist Temples and towards the end of the holiday you start thinking, "Oh no, not another one".
