why travel solo to laos?
For all its spirituality and slow pace of life, Laos’ rugged beauty means it’s primed for adventure.
Laos is renowned for its rural perfection. Rice paddies, stilted houses, waterfalls and elephants – it’s quintessential Asia – with the Mekong River running through its core.
Sail your way along the Mekong, watching the landscapes unfold around you. Explore the Tam Ting caves and absorb colonial French influences in Luang Prabang. Spot monks in their vibrant saffron robes and get zen in a yoga class, always making time for the fragrant Laotian cuisine.
By the time you finish your travels in Laos, the frenetic side to South East Asia will feel like a distant dream.
