Bordered by China, Burma, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand, this landlocked country was once known as Lane Xang, or “land of a million elephants.” Today tourism is on the rise, with the key city being beautiful Luang Prabang; once a royal kingdom, it is located along the Mekong River in the north-central part of the country. Today a UNESCO world heritage site, it has a wonderful Royal Museum, temples and historic sights, a bustling night market, excellent deluxe hotel and dining options, and natural beauty in areas such as Kuang Si Falls and Pak Ou Caves, upstream along the Ou River and only accessible by boat. It can be reached by air, but a far nicer way is to travel down the Mekong River from northern Thailand to reach it. Also recommended are visits to the capital city Vientiane, and the mysterious Plain of Jars in the Lao Highlands. Please browse our collection of Laos deluxe tours below.
