    Why Embark on a Laos Tour?

    Tropical rainforests, endless rice fields, impressive mountain landscapes, and friendly inhabitants—you'll find all these things on a Laos tour! The Southeast Asian landlocked country awaits you not only with a scenic, but also cultural diversity that is unparalleled. It is not for nothing that the old royal city of Luang Prabang, for example, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    There are also many spectacular temples and pilgrimage sites to admire in Laos. In remote mountain villages you will learn more about the Laotian everyday life from the relaxed inhabitants. Go on a discovery tour and explore limestone caves, swim in waterfalls or get to know the land of slowness on the "river of life", the Mekong, from a new perspective. The dense, lush green jungle of Laos is also home to the gentle Asian elephants, with whom you can get up close and personal in some places. Let the charming Laos enchant you. Less

    Where to Go on Your Laos Vacation?

    Kuang Si Waterfall

    About 20 miles from Luang Prabang, the Kuang Si Waterfall awaits you in the middle of dense green forests. You can look forward to several natural pools where you can refresh yourself and a breathtaking view from the highest point of the waterfall. The best time to visit this natural spectacle is in the morning and let the special atmosphere here take effect undisturbed.

    Pha That Luang Stupa

    Pha That Luang is not only the national symbol of Laos, but also the most important Buddhist monument of the country. The magnificent golden stupa, whose arrow-like tower rises 150 feet into the sky, is located in the capital Vientiane. Some legends have grown up around this impressive building from the 16th century. Among other things, it is believed that a relic of Buddha himself is inside.

    Si Phan Don

    The 4,000 islands, Si Phan Don, is an idyllic region in the surroundings of Champasak, which consists of various large and small islands in the Mekong. In the charming villages located on some of the islands you will get a feel for the original life in Laos. Explore the surroundings by boat, bicycle and typical tuk tuk. On the way, with a little luck, you will discover the rare Irrawaddy dolphins.

    Vang Vieng

    Between Luang Prabang and Vientiane, surrounded by karst formations and rain forest, lies the small town of Vang Vieng. Relax here in the middle of endless rice fields or explore the countless caves and lagoons that are located in the vicinity. The small town is located on the banks of the Nam Song River, where you can go kayaking or watch picturesque sunsets in the evening.

    Pak Ou Caves

    North of the UNESCO World Heritage City of Luang Prabang, Pak Ou Caves, also known as Buddha Caves, await you. This nickname comes from the fact that inside the two limestone caves are countless golden Buddha images in various sizes. After a two-hour boat trip through idyllic landscapes you will reach the Buddhist place of worship from Luang Prabang. On the way there, or after the cave exploration, you can visit some small villages.

    Mekong River

    The mighty Mekong River stretches from north to south through all of Laos, offering wonderful opportunities to get to know the country from the water. For example, board the boat at the Thai border and sail leisurely on several days to the spiritual center of the country, Luang Prabang. On the way you will visit several villages of different ethnic groups and get an insight into the traditional life here and get a feeling for Laos in its different facets. Less
