Welcome to Lao PDR
Leave the frenetic world behind, enter a tranquil and unhurried place, and experience the famous Lao hospitality.
Laos is a country as yet untouched by the modern demands, stress and pace of life. Its beauty lies in the Lao people, centuries-old traditions and heritage, and its lush pristine landscape.
Special interests are focused on trekking in the mountains, sleeping in ethnic groups homestays, visiting Cultural heritage sites, unveiling the Indochina War in Xieng Khuang and Viengxay, and biking, kayaking, zipping, caving, cruising or bathing in one of the numerous waterfall pools.
Cruising the Mekong between Houay Xay and Luang Prabang is a must. In Southern Laos cruising around Wat Phou or along the Nam Ou River between Phongsaly Province and Luang Prabang and on the Nam Tha River are unique and soothing experiences that will leave you with mellow souvenirs.
You can learn cooking classes in Luang Prabang, how to make Sa paper, or dying clothes. The best purchases are wicker works and textiles of organic cotton or pure silk.
Staying in a Homestay is probably one of the best ways to discover this lovely country and its people when going for a trek. Once there you’ll spend the night within the community, and you’ll have close encounters with your hosts and their daily lives. If you wish you can be involved in activities such as feeding their cattle, cooking with them or playing a game of kataw with kids. Dinner will be taken all together, and villagers will tell you their stories and traditions while drinking local alcohol before going to bed.
Visitors and guidebooks describe Laos as one of the most charming places in the region, an unadulterated country that evokes a true sense of authentic Southeast Asia.
