Lose yourself in landlocked Laos, a timeless glimpse at what life used to be like in Southeast Asia. Nestled along the banks of languid rivers, you’ll find sleepy villages that have remained unchanged for centuries. Monks swathed in orange robes tread soundlessly through the streets on their way to gleaming temples. And among the mountains, the jungle reveals hidden waterfalls and inviting blue pools, where monkeys will look on as you swim in the clear waters.

Experience the best of Laos on our Classic Laos Tour, which will take you down the Mekong River, stopping at Luang Prabang to walk through the hushed temples, heading off the beaten track to climb the cascading pools of Kuang Si Waterfalls and venture into the Pak Ou Caves, home to myriad buddha statues adorned in golden fabrics.

Take your adventure further afield into neighbouring Vietnam on our 12-day Classic Vietnam and Laos Tour, journeying south from the serenity of Luang Prabang, and visiting some of Vietnam’s most scenic coastal towns en route to Ho Chi Minh City. Catch a boat in Halong Bay with its towering limestone islands amid emerald waters and explore the temples of Hue.

See the best of Cambodia on our Grand Tour of Indochina over 15 days, venturing into Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, home to one of the world’s most incredible temple sites – Angkor Wat. Both tours will highlight the many ways that the cultures and histories of these countries have been inextricably intertwined over the centuries, while maintaining their own unique identities.

“You have to try the Laotian coffee. You can buy it from most street vendors, and it’s served in a plastic bag with ice and a straw in the top and a dollop of condensed milk in the bottom. Delicious.”

“One of my most memorable days started off with an early morning hike up Mount Phousi, while staying in Luang Prabang. Watching the sunrise set the ancient city beneath us aglow was magical.”

“As a foodie, one of my favourite ways to immerse myself in the culture of a new place is through the local cuisine. There are loads of great cookery classes you can take, particularly in the bigger towns.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the weather like in Laos?

The most comfortable time of year to visit is between November and February, during the cooler dry season, compared to March and April when it’s much hotter. The rainy season runs from May through to October.

What is the currency in Laos?

The local currency is the Lao kip, but US dollars and Thai bhat are also accepted in certain places, particularly the more visited, larger towns and cities. Remember to change your money back before you leave the country, as it can be difficult to do so outside of Laos.

What’s the food like in Laos?

Lao cuisine hasn’t really made its mark on the Western world like some of its Southeast Asian neighbours’, but rest assured it’s equally delicious. The closest comparison can probably be made with dry and spicy Thai food. You can expect sticky rice or rice noodles, fresh green papaya salads, and fish, buffalo meat, pork and poultry accompanied by flavoursome chili, ginger, galangal, lemongrass and coriander.

Laos has maintained many of its traditions and charm, with a less developed approach to tourism than some of its neighbours, so it still feels like you’re stepping into the Southeast Asia of the past. Enjoy the slower pace of life, as you float down the Mekong, past peaceful rural villages or watch the brightly robed monks go by in Luang Prabang.
