Elephant riding - Laos

 

 

 

 

INTRODUCTION

After years of turmoil, peace and tranquility have come to Laos and this small landlocked nation is slowly opening its doors and offering travellers a warm welcome. Our journey down the Mekong River takes us past gorgeous and lush countryside – perfect for scenic photos. Against a setting of Buddhist monuments and crumbling French colonial architecture in Luang Prabang, we encounter welcoming locals who have often had little contact with foreigners. Vientiane, unlike most capital cities, is bathed in tranquillity, with the pace and mood of a large country town. Situated on the banks of the Mekong River, it is home to many historic Buddhist temples and monuments, including the impressive golden stupa of Pha That Luang.

 

HIGHLIGHTS
* Attractive Vientiane with its old town along the Mekong River and ancient temples
* Explore the hidden treasures of Luang Prabang
* Leisurely boat ride on the Mekong River to the holy caves of Pac Ou.
* A spectacular panorama from the top of Phousi Hill and visit the weaving village of Ban Phanom

  Brief itinerary

 

Days 1-2 Vientiane
Explore laidback Vientiane where the morning market stays open all day and dusty riverside paths are packed with friendly children, dogs and chickens. Behold the thousands of Buddha statues at Wat Si Saket and Pha That Luang.

Days 2-3 Luang Prabang
The jewel in Laos' crown, Luang Prabang is bursting at the seams with temples small and large. Climb to the top Phu Si at sunset for magical views over the town or hop onto a songthaew to visit the gorgeous Kuang Si Falls.
