LAOS

Laos is the Wild American West in spirit, the Deep American South at heart.

With a backdrop of stunning geography, visit Laos to experience French colonial food and architecture mixed with traditional Laos hospitality and conviviality.

This deeply spiritual Southeast Asian country has a reputation for being a tranquil and sleepy backwater, but the truth is that it is an incredibly vibrant young country emerging gracefully from a Cold War era mentality. Underexplored, endearing and enchanting, Laos is a country that will surprise and delight you in the most charming ways.

Jungle-rich lands combine with Thailand’s capital.

Tiny and landlocked, Laos is an echo of the Thailand of years gone by. Visit Laos today as it is rapidly developing, and a “must see now” before it is too late.

LUANG PRABANG

Sleepy, quaint, yet full of life and color, the town of Luang Prabang is one of our most darling destinations in Southeast Asia. The fusion of traditional Lao architecture and French colonial buildings against the backdrop of lush mountains creates a truly unique townscape. UNESCO agrees, hence why Luang Prabang is listed as a World Heritage Site!

VIENTIANE

Luang Prabang is a must visit for a variety of reasons: fabulous colonial French-Lao architecture, French-Lao food, spectacular temples and a glimpse of the spiritual seat of traditional Laotian culture. The town, virtually all of which is accessible on foot, features quaint, adorably charming lanes ideal for afternoon strolls or cycling outings. With clean, palm-lined boulevards and of course the romantic views of the Mekong and Khan rivers, Luang Prabang has much to offer the discerning travel enthusiast.
