Laos encompasses some of the most scenic stretches of the Mekong, and luxury cruises can be a great way to see the highlights without breaking sweat. For those of a more energetic disposition, this is also a fabulous country to explore on foot - particularly interesting are the isolated valleys of the far north, whose numerous minority communities retain traditional forms of dress, jewellery and architecture.
Textile aficionados will find plenty of inspiration here too, as will birdwatchers and students of Asia’s former courtly culture. Recitals by the Royal Ballet of Laos are also regularly staged in Luang Prabang, by performers dressed in vibrant brocaded silk, elaborate headdresses and masks.
Whatever your particular interest, we’ll be able to build an itinerary around it. Our team have explored the country in depth and will be delighted to provide well-focussed travel advice, whether you’re into tribal sculpture or ticking off forgotten Khmer temples.
