Overview

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, circled by jungle-topped mountains. 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. Sip on a delicious local coffee at a sidewalk cafe, wander through the ramshackle market, explore nearby caves and walk to hidden waterfalls.

“Laos is a real winner for anyone looking for a mix of culture, nature and tasty cuisine. Visiting the falls outside Luang Prabang is my favourite excursion - it’s a ‘must do’ experience and my customers highly recommend it too!”
