Day 1
Vientiane, Laos

Vientiane may be the capital city of Laos but, unlike other Southeast Asian capitals, offers a relaxing atmosphere. There are many landmarks worth visiting including a plethora of temples, the Lao National Museum and Patuxai - which resembles Paris’ Arc de Triomphe. A gentle walk by the river offers a calm way to soak in the local atmosphere of this immense city.

Day 2
Ban Sanakham, Laos

Ban Sanakham is an important border crossing point between Laos and Thailand. Here, you can also visit the cultivated plains of the Vientiane province.

Day 3
Pak Lai, Laos

The Laos town of Pak Lai was once a French administrative town and many colonial buildings remain here to this day. Pak Lai also offers a regular bustling market and is home to the largest elephant festival in South East Asia, which is often held in February.

Day 5
Luang Prabang, Laos

Historically the capital city of Laos, today Luang Prabang is a UNESCO World Heritage site that sits at the confluence of the Nam Khan and Mekong Rivers. Luang Prabang is steeped in culture and heritage, with landmarks such as the Haw Kham – a former royal palace – now a national museum. Another landmark worth visiting is Vat Xieng Toung – the oldest and perhaps the most beautiful monastery in the city.

Day 7
Pak Ou Caves, Laos

Located at the mouth of the Ou River is the Tham Ting and Tham Theung caves, which overlook the Mekong River. While also providing a great view over the river, these caves are also noted for their miniature statues of Buddha. There are hundreds of wooden Buddhist statues with the caves, each of which depicts the deity in many different positions.

Day 8
Pak Beng, Laos

Pak Beng delivers a glimpse of rural life in Laos, away from the bustling cities and landmarks. Situated between Huay Xai and Luang Prabang, it is only easily accessible via the Mekong River and, upon arrival, the locals will be delighted to welcome you into their village.
