Combine your cultures
Laos is the centerpiece of a captivating Southeast Asian cocktail; it’s position screams out for an adventure combining its equally enticing neighbours.
Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos and Thailand; four countries pushed to the forefront of people’s travel imaginations by their crowd pulling ‘wow’ factor – the historical grandeur of Angkor Wat, the sensational pace of Saigon, Laos’s dreamy old world magic, and Bangkok’s bustling blend of ancient and modern. Then there’s the small, but remarkable aspects of each destination - long lines of saffron robed monks on their alms round at dawn, the luscious green of Vietnam's paddy fields, the shy smile of school children lining the banks of the Mekong River – day-to-day occurrences for the local populations, but enchanting sights and sounds that will stay with long after your trip has ended. Laos has the enviable position of lying long in the middle of them all, but most people tend to start in Thailand then work their way round - whichever direction you choose to travel, an Indochina tour through all four very different countries represents the ultimate Southeast Asian adventure and an opportunity that no one should miss.
