THE COUNTRY OF MILLION ELEPHANTS, AN AUTHENTIC BEAUTY TO DISCOVER, IT’S NATURE AND ITS ROYAL CITY

BOOK THIS DESTINATION AND DISCOVER LAOS
Laos, formerly known as: country of a million elephants still is a true authentic destination in Southeast Asia. Comparing with its direct neighbors, it seems like the country lives in slow motion. The Mountains occupy a large part of the country with the Phou Bia as highest peak in the south of the province of Xieng Khouang (2820M). By traveling in Laos you will discover a preserved nature and an important Buddhist heritage as in the old royal capital of Luang Prabang.
A place not to be missed and which can be combined coming from the north of Thailand or while enjoying a trip on the Mekong river, which runs across the country. The north of the country consists of mountains interspersed with pretty rivers.

 

You can go on an adventure in this exceptional nature surrounded by an extraordinary fauna and flora. You will meet hospitable local tribes and learn their culture and way of life. The country’s center meanwhile is still relatively little visited, and will immerse you into an even more spectacular wilderness, where, if you are lucky, you can come across some wild animals when on a trekking. The south of the country, with its milder climate and its unique landscape will guarantee a memorable experience.

LUANG PRABANG, CENTRAL PLACE OF BUDDHISM AND LAOSIAN ART

Luang Prabang is nestled at the heart of a mountainous area on a peninsula formed by the Mekong and the Nam Khan River. The mountain ranges (especially the mountains Phou Thao and Phou Nang) create a beautiful green area around it. Its urban landscape is remarkably well preserved and its architectural and artistic heritage is exceptionally rich. The political and religious center of Luang Prabang is the peninsula, with its royal palaces and nobles and religious foundations. The traditional urban fabric of the old villages, each with its temple, has been preserved by later constructions.

 
An important religious life still animates it and if you are up early, you will see the monks in their saffron robes coming out of their temples to receive the offerings of the generous inhabitants. It will be the beginning of an exciting day. This visit of Luang Prabang can be the highlight of a lovely two-day cruise on the Mekong where you will discover the deep rural Laos. Starting from the Thai border, your travel will immerse you in splendid landscapes.

THE MEKONG, A SOURCE OF NATURAL WONDERS

AS WELL IN THE NORTH AS IN THE SOUTH OF THE COUNTRY, DISCOVER DREAM PLACES CREATED BY THIS MYTHICAL RIVER
Vang Vieng in the north of the country is an oasis of calmness and greenery on a tributary of the Mekong, in a picturesque valley with in the background, jagged karst mountains. A landscape as on a silk painting. This is an opportunity to explore the surrounding countryside and stretches of rice paddies, to visit a tribal village as well as exploring the Tam Phoukham cave. In the south, on the border with Cambodia and Thailand, the Mekong spreads and forms Si Phan Don (the “4000 Islands”). They will make you discover a beautiful region, landscapes that will take your breath away and indescribable sunsets.
