2009 Laos Experience - 8 day Laos Tour

2009 Laos Experience - 8 days

Experience the laid-back river lifestyle, friendly people and colonial charm of Laos on this 8-day journey. We begin in the far north of Thailand, in Chiang Rai. From here we enter Laos and travel by slow boat down the mighty Mekong to the outpost of Pakbeng and onto beautiful Luang Prabang. The religious centre of this little-visited country is one of Asia’s true highlights – peaceful temples, lush mountains and fabric-filled markets await. We finish our journey in Laos’ appealing capital, Vientiane.
