2009 Thailand & Laos Experience - 14 day Thailand & Laos Tour

2009 Thailand & Laos Experience - 14 days

Experience the very best of Thailand and Laos on this new 14-day journey, a combination of our ‘Taste of Thailand’ and ‘Laos Experience’ journeys. From the bright lights of Bangkok to the faded French-colonial charm of Vientiane, we travel by bus, plane, boat and tuk tuk to give you a real insight into this enchanting region. Stay overnight in a jungle resort on the banks of the River Kwai, embark on a fascinating walking tour of Chiang Mai, and travel down the Mekong by slow boat to beautiful Luang Prabang. Here we will visit a pristine waterfall and beautiful monasteries, and meet some of the locals at a riverside game of petanque.
