Many visitors cover what they want to see in Laos in a trip of a week or less, making Laos a destination conveniently combined with neighbouring Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, China or Burma.
Luang Prabang is the focus of most people's interest in Laos, and rightly so. We have put together a short Luang Prabang city stay for those looking to add on Luang Prabang to other destinations.
From Luang Prabang it's possible to make some great excursions into the mountainous region of northern Laos to discover hilltribe cultures and some trekking.
In the South of Laos, many sights are conveniently located within easy reach of Pakse and we have created some short Southern Laos itineraries to consider as convenient Southern Laos extensions.
The Vat Phou cruise is a long-time favourite of ours, as are the Shompoo and Luang Say Mekong cruises which connect Thailand's Golden Triangle region with Luang Prabang on a scenic 2-day journey.
