Take a trip along the Mekong River, and follow it through the cultural differences of the Laotian cities. Starting in the north, in Luang Prabang, where the city is surrounded by angelic limestone mountains and turquoise waterfalls such as Kuang Si Falls; just relax and appreciate the artistic natural creation surrounding you. Embark upon a journey to the serene Pak Ou Caves, ending your day observing a magical sunset. Or move further south to witness the ancient archaeological landscape of Phonsavan where you’ll find the Plain of Jars, dating back to the Iron Age! After having witnessed the history of the north, let your hair down in small town Vang Vieng – full of bars, a gorgeous lagoon and the notorious tubing across the Nam Song River, this is the place to pick yourself up a Beer Lao and go a little wild. Continuing to follow the river you’ll cross the capital city, Vientiene – full of beautiful Buddhist Wats. If you’re into meditation and are looking for a holiday to reflect, Si Phon Don (literally translating as, “4000 Islands”) is the place for you. Where time appears to move extremely slowly, the surrounding waters create a tranquil, laid back environment for you to sit back, and relax.
