Laos

Rugged beauty meets ancient traditions

Historic streets, beautiful landscapes and welcoming people are just part of what makes a Laos vacation so unforgettable.

On a Laos vacation, discover a captivating country where age-old traditions continue as they’ve done for centuries. As you’ll find when you wander streets lined with crumbling French architecture, the colonial chapter of Laos’s history has done little to diminish the country’s own way of doing things.

Plunge yourself into Laotian culture by experiencing its many facets, whether it’s drifting down the Mekong through dramatic limestone landscapes, uncovering local legends on a plateau strewn with prehistoric stone jars, or meeting friendly local people over a game of petanque, a national pastime left behind by the French.
