Reasons to Visit
The Baci ceremony in Laos is an important blessing in Buddhist culture and is used to celebrate any landmark event. A traditional ceremony hosted by a Lao monk will make your trip even more memorable.
From tasting Laos`s national fiery dish of laap to tasting a fine Lao coffee on the Bolaven`s Plateau or even accepting an invite to drink the potent Lao Lao, a strange rice wine blend that will knock your socks off!
Test your bartering skills at Luang Prabang's daily market, a fantastic place to pick up some great authentic Asian souvenirs.
There are few things in Southeast Asia that can beat a beer Lao as the sunsets over the Mekong - from the riverbanks in Luang Prabang to the 4000 islands, watching the world go by at sunset is a must.
The northern part of Laos is a remote region that sees few tourists. Heading north from the Thai border towards China, the town of Luang Nam Tha is the gateway to the Nam Ha National Park, with countless opportunities to explore on foot, by kayak and on mountain bikes. A little further south you will stumble upon the picturesque area of Muang La and the dramatic valley of Nong Khiaw before arriving by road or boat at the cultural centre of Luang Prabang.
