Known as the jewel of Southeast Asia, the country has remained relatively untouched from modern globalisation, making it a great destination to visit.

Full Itinerary

Days 1 - 3: Sightseeing in and around Luang Prabang.

There is lots to see and do around Luang Prabang. When the bells of the town's monasteries toll at dawn you can see long, golden lines of monks emerge to receive their morning rice from the townspeople. Visit Wat Xieng Thong, a 15th century Wat which is the most important in the entire country, a celebration space of religious rites and festivals. Take a traditional slow boat on the Mekong River and visit the holy Tam Ting Caves, a site of ancient spiritual significance where there are over 4,000 wooden figures of Buddha. There is also a short walk to Wat Mai with its striking gilded relief panels covering the front facade. 


We have organised a tour of a local buffalo dairy farm where you can learn how to milk a buffalo and the process behind it. Then onto the beautiful Kuang Si waterfalls, which takes on a striking turquoise colour in the dry season, perfect for a refreshing bath in the afternoon. 


Days 4 - 6: Mountain Jungle Trek.
Trek into the jungle on paths that locals use daily as their only routes to and between these remote villages. First day trekking is 4-5 hours of medium grade walking through rice paddies and jungle. The second day is the shortest hike, 4 hours along valley streams to an amazingly remote village situated in a valley surrounded by large mountains. The last day is the longest, where you’ll hike 6-7 hours to the mountain tops. Nights are spent in villages where there is time to explore the area and meet locals. This is a fantastic opportunity to explore the countryside and traditional way of life.

Day 7: Boat Trip on Nam Ou River.

An amazing and truly fantastic landscape is waiting for you today. Along the way we can visit a village or explore local caves. The afternoon we have time to explore the little village of Muang Ngoi which is a riverside place with a small road but no cars or motorbikes. A peaceful place, ideal to relax and enjoy the lifestyle of North Laos. 


Day 8: Ban Lue Handmade Cotton Experience.

Meet with locals who will demonstrate how cotton weaving are handmade, starting with cotton fibres and ending with a finished product. Everyone can learn hand spinning and weaving with a local master weaver using indigenous tools. End up with a scarf made by your own hands. 


Days 9 – 10: Ban Nayang – Luang Prabang.

Visit the Traditional Arts and Ethnology Centre (TAEC), a lively and interactive space that offers visitors an insight into the uniquely diverse cultures that exist in Laos. Discover many things you didn’t know about the country and its people during your visit at TAEC. This is a great place to buy gifts, as there are locally produced pieces from over 20 different ethnic groups.
