Tours of Laos

There's no better way to explore Laos than by going on a tour. This dazzling country, with its sublime scenery, laid-back vibe and wonderful heritage, has so much to offer that it's far better to travel around than stay in one place. This way, you get a better sense of all that it has to offer.

Laos holidays - made for exploring

A wonderfully varied destination, Laos is ripe for exploration. Unlike most south-east Asian countries, it is comparatively little-visited by tourists, and as such you get an irresistible sense of adventure as you travel around it.

But there are more reasons to tour Laos than simply enjoying the feeling of adventure. In many ways, Laos has changed little over the centuries, which means there is still plenty of regional variation and local colour. So, touring allows you to get a comprehensive view of the country and taste all that Laos has to offer - from its historic wats and remote villages to its cities and natural wonders.

Travelling in the north will give you the opportunity to explore a host of fascinating heritage spots. Indeed, it's here that you'll find the wonderful province and city of Luang Prabang, famous for its saffron-robed monks, gilded wats and Indochinese villas. Also home to beautiful mountain scenery, the north is ideal for trekking too.

The central provinces, meanwhile, are home to some of the country's finest cultural destinations. This includes Vientiane, the laid-back capital, which is full of French culinary flair, not to mention an impressive old quarter and statues.

Venture further south and you'll discover a land of lush landscapes punctuated with intriguing heritage sites. Among the highlights of the south is Si Phan Don (Four Thousand Islands), which only appears during the dry season when the mighty Mekong recedes. In this idyllic setting, you can do everything from relax and enjoy the scenery to spot dolphins and go kayaking.

Extend your tour beyond Laos

Laos doesn't only lend itself well to exploring within the country, but also to a wider trip around the region. Vietnam, Thailand and Singapore make great additions to a holiday to Laos - and in more ways than one. As well as giving you a wider experience of south-east Asia, a combined trip means you can balance the authentic appeal of Laos, which has only a very basic tourist infrastructure, with a destination that directly offers more facilities for tourists.

Whether you decide to explore Laos on its own or alongside another country, one thing's for sure - this laid-back paradise is a place you'll never forget.
