2008 Mountains & Monks:8 day Laos Family Package Tour

2008 Mountains & Monks - 8 days

Pagodas, pachyderms and some of Asia’s friendliest faces await in Laos.

This journey through magical Laos is loaded with pagodas, pachyderms and some of the friendliest local people in Asia. The whole family will love this adventure in the 'Kingdom of a Million Elephants.'
Start your Lao experience in the country's sleepy capital, Vientiane. From here you will travel overland to Vang Vieng, a stunningly beautiful riverside town surrounded by majestic mountain vistas. Luang Prabang, the cultural heart of the country, is where your trip culminates – check out the waterfalls, nearby villages and the vibrant night market. Your elephant trek, sunrise encounter with local monks, experiences on the Mekong and more all make for the family holiday of a lifetime.
