Our Tours




On the banks of the Mekong River, across the border from Thailand, Laos' capital is a small, sleepy place with a gentle pace of life in its French-inspired boulevards. Delight in sights such as saffron-robed monks, elegant temples, and colourful markets.

Luang Prabang

Laos' old royal capital is one of the most beguiling towns in Southeast Asia. Its numerous temples, Indochinese villas, shops, and cafes still exhibit the languid feel of yesteryear. Situated at the confluence of the Mekong and Nan Kham rivers, the peninsula on which the old town sits provides the ideal backdrop to lazy days, spiritual enlightenment, and historical imagination.
