HIGHLIGHTS Download trip notes
  • To get you ready for the Laotian lifestyle, make your way through northern Thailand and through charming Chiang Mai – the true temple city.
  • Laos equals laidback. This is one of the most chilledout countries going around, and you’ll have heaps of free time to explore at your own pace.
  • Two days of cruising down the Mekong River in a traditionalstyle boat is one Southeast Asia's classic trips, with more photoops than you can shake a bamboo cane at.
  • The UNESCOlisted city of Luang Prabang is a serious slice of history. Between the French villas and the blazing sunsets over the Mekong, you won't know which way to look.
Start in Bangkok and end in Vientiane, the trip Real Thailand & Laos is a guided adventure tour that takes 14 days. You will be traveling through Vang Vieng, Bangkok, Chiang Mai and 3 other destinations in Thailand and Laos. Real Thailand & Laos is a small group trip which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others. Please see the package includes section for further details.

This 14-day exploration of the South East Asian countryside is sure to keep you guessing at every turn. Kick off in old Bangkok, wind through northern Thailand with some fun times Chiang Mai, then cross the border into Laos where you’ll be able to see the authentic side to this landlocked country. Cruise on the mighty Mekong, laze in Laos' beauty queen Luang Prabang, love on nature in Vang Vieng and finish up in sleepy Vientiane. You know they’re a welcoming bunch when you cross something called the Friendship Bridge. Take a leaf out of the Laotians book and make a few new friends in this part of the world.

“Was busy before joining the tour so really looking forward to wind down and get a well-deserved break. Starting in the hotspot of San Francisco and finishing in mind-blowing LA, with a lot of great flora and fauna in between. Our guide was knowledgeable and managed to make everything smooth. Was fortunate to join a great group of people as well.”
