Landlocked Laos is the least visited out of its Southeast Asian neighbours, but its small, enchanting cities, gentle culture, and lush, unspoiled scenery should definitely not be overlooked. Let us take you there with all the style, luxury and local expertise that Jacada can bring; your bespoke itinerary can feature as much or as little as you like, and you can easily combine Laos with Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, and beyond for a well-rounded trip.
Tranquil Luang Prabang is set on the banks of the Mekong River and captures the heart of every traveller that visits the old French-influenced city; visit its gilded, picturesque Buddhist temples and rise early to witness the daily procession of saffron-clad monks collecting alms from the local residents. Venture out into the jungle on an elephant trek, and head off the beaten track into the north to stay in one of our favourite rainforest lodges, set in a village by some hot springs. In the sleepy capital Vientiane, spend time wandering past French colonial mansions and watch a fiery sunset over the Mekong. Pre-Angkor ruins draw travellers to Don Daeng and Champasak in southern Laos, while the Four Thousand Islands of the Mekong offer the ideal setting in which to truly unwind and maybe spot the rare pink dolphin.
