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.

Point Lonsdale, Victoria
Tamarind cooking class/ visit to rice farm/ and patronising the restaurant training young people was brilliant.
Was aware it was the hot season which did get a bit dire 43c never recorded before. However bonus was far less tourists.
