2008 Mekong & Beyond:8 day Laos & Thailand Tour

2008 Mekong & Beyond - 8 days

The Golden Triangle and Laos’ religious and cultural capitals await.

This exciting new journey will bring you face to face with the exotic Golden Triangle, as well as laid-back Laos' religious and cultural capital.

Travel by slow boat down the mighty Mekong deep into the heart of Laos. Luang Prabang, the religious centre of this little-visited country, is one of Asia's true highlights – you will be left awestruck by the procession of a thousand monks collecting alms at dawn. The gracious Lao people are your hosts, and you will leave with a true understanding of the mystical environment they call home.
