Slow Down the Pace of Life on a Private Tour of Laos
On your tour through Laos you’ll find that Vientiane, the unhurried capital, is an interesting mix of Buddhist temples and French patisseries. Its most famous monument is the 16th-century golden stupa of Pha That Luang, considered the holiest site in the country. Laos’s version of the Arc de Triomphe of Paris, is the ornate Patuxai Victory Gate, a war memorial studded with images of Hindu gods.
Surrounded by mountains, Laos’s ancient capital and cultural center Luang Prabang lies at the confluence of the Nam Khan and Mekong rivers. Golden roofed Buddhist monasteries and colonial French architecture coexist in this UNESCO World Heritage city. Take a leisurely cruise down the serene river Mekong in a traditional long boat, passing rice fields and villages. Float past the cliffs of the Nam Ou River, and visit Pak Ou Caves, replete with several thousand tiny Buddha statues. In the late evening, head to the Handicraft Night Market, bursting with textiles, ceramics, and a range of handicrafts.
While in Luang Prabang, hop across to Elephant Village, where rescued elephants are rehabilitated, and guests allowed to interact with them. Spring for a cooking class, and learn to make a slew of Laotian dishes. Let your journey through this country move at a gentle, relaxed pace.
