This Asian country is absolutely authentic and (thankfully) not yet discovered by mass tourism. If you take one of our Laos tours you will not find modern infrastructure but you will find impressive nature and extremely friendly people. Travel peacefully through Laos and enjoy the unspoiled nature, silence and rich culture.
Culture and religion are the foundation of Laos. This can be seen in the many temples, pagodas, monks and rituals of the locals you meet while travelling through Laos. The Mekong River is of great significance for the Laotians as given the lack of infrastructure, transport mainly operates via the rivers. The Mekong River and surrounding deltas are the lifeblood of Laos. Make a boat trip on the river and see the beautiful scenery slowly pass you by!
In Vientiane, capital of Laos, you will find the national symbol: the Pha That Luang. This temple has a glittering golden stupa and is wonderful to see during your Laos travels. Also in the capital, in addition to many other temples, are relics from the time that the French held power over Indochina. The city of Luang Prabang is the cultural highlight of Laos. This traditional town has long been isolated from the rest of the world and is listed as an UNESCO World Heritage Site. There is so much to see here. The view from the hill on which the Phu Si Temple sits, is unforgettable.
Once you leave the city and travel Laos further, you become overwhelmed by the beautiful scenery. See rugged mountains, jungle and rural areas where tea and coffee is alternately grown. Hiking tours will take you through magnificent forests and beautiful rice fields. In Vang Vieng, you can go tubing, where you relax in an inflated tire as you float down the river while enjoying the beautiful scenery. You will notice that Laos is a sparsely populated country with little hustle and bustle. Everything is also slower. The group tours to Laos allow you to relax and unwind.
