small village with outdoor restaurant

Days 1-4

Experience Luang Prabang

Step into a heady, spiritual world of golden spires, saffron-robed monks, frangipani flowers and crumbling French mansions. Prepare to be instantly caught in the spell of Luang Prabang, a heartwarming place slung along the banks of the Mekong River. You’ll spend four days getting lost in the magic of Luang Prabang, watching monks file into the temples at sunrise and floating down the Mekong at sunset.

Kayak Between Limestone Peaks

Days 4-6

Kayak Between Limestone Peaks

Glide along a rippling rural river between jungle-topped karst mountains, explore hidden caves and meet the friendly locals in tiny, traditional villages. When it comes to scenery, Vang Vieng is a real showstopper, clinging to the banks of the beautiful Nam Song river and flanked by emerald peaks. You’ll spend two nights in Vang Vieng, staying in a rustic bungalow and go trekking and kayaking.

Days 6-8

Vive Vientiane

Explore Vientiane, a sleepy, scenic capital curled around a bend in the Mekong River, packed with tuk-tuks, French bakeries and friendly monks. Marvel at temples crammed with thousands of Buddha statues, watch daily life unfold over a croissant in a pavement cafe and stroll along the river front. Vientiane feels more like a village than a capital city, with laid-back locals and a languid pace of life. During this trip, you’ll explore the city’s cuisine on a tuk-tuk tour through the colourful markets.
