The Land of a Million Elephants, as Laos was once known, is opening up to tourists after years of war and isolation. Consequently, a visit to Laos is like stepping back in time and the citizens have retained innocence and charm that is as rare as it is valuable. The mountains and rivers are pristine in this land-locked country, squeezed between China, Burma, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.
As part of Indochina, Laos was colonized by the French and the cities of Vientiane, Luang Prabang and Pakse have inherited the classical, elegant, if little faded, character only French architects can inspire. Although Laos has some genuinely interesting attractions to offer - the Plain of Jars in Xieng Khuang Province, the forested mountains of Northern Laos, the gothic limestone karsts around Vang Vieng and Si Phan Don (Four Thousand Islands) where the mighty Mekong spreads in the Southern Laos - it is the warmth and sincere friendliness of its people that will live forever in the hearts of anyone fortunate enough to visit.
Our Southern Laos tour is a sojourn along the Mekong River to the former colonial outpost of Champasak, the serene beauty of Si Phan Don and the rich fertile lands of the coffee growing Bolevan Plateau. From the natural attractions of amazing waterfalls to the rare Irrawaddy dolphins and to the cultural Khmer temples of Wat Phu, this tour explores the quiet back roads of South Laos.
