"The pretty little town of Luang Prabang is rich in natural beauty and Buddhist spirituality."

Flanked on three sides by rivers, Luang Prabang is incredibly easy on the eye, and its laid-back, small-town vibe is unique in comparison to many of its southeast Asian counterparts.

Laos is far less urbanised than many countries in the Far East, and so it offers plenty of natural environments in which to explore. Visit the curious hill tribe of Tai Lu and the unique stilted houses that make up the village. Discover more about their traditional ways and enjoy a delicious lunch cooked by the villagers and served in a local home. Back in Luang Prabang itself there's another culinary delight on offer in the form of a cooking class, which will see you explore Phosy market, the largest market in the city, before preparing your own Lao dishes. 

A great way to take in the lush scenery of Laos is by going on an elephant trek. Our excursion will take you on an hour and a half long trek through the stunning Laos jungles, pierced by jutting limestone karsts. Enjoy a picnic at the Elephant Jungle Camp before visiting the beautiful Tad Sae waterfall in the afternoon. A perfect way to cap off your evening is with a Sunset Cruise along the Mekong, taking in the sights of everyday life along the river and allowing you to indulge in some on board drinks.
