Description of Laos 7 day tour
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetAs with all of our luxury vacations, this itinerary has been crafted to ensure that it positively effects the local communities and environments visited.
This itinerary includes trips to some of Laos' areas of natural beauty, such as Kuang Si Falls, plus areas of cultural significance, such as the Pak Ou Caves. By visiting these sites (all entrance fees are included in your luxury tour), you are supporting the protection of these areas, and indicating to authorities that tourists are interested in protecting Laos' incredible natural environments and cultural heritage.
Whilst exploring areas of natural beauty, such as national parks and beaches, please ensure that you don’t leave any litter – everything you carry in, you must carry out. Aside from the environmental damage, litter can be harmful to wildlife.
We also make a special effort to recommend accommodation providers which have responsible and sustainable initiatives. For example, Green Park Boutique Hotel uses only organic ingredients and the hotel grows their crops at their own organic farm, which are then used in the restaurant.
PeopleAll the local guides referred to in this itinerary are paid a fair wage. We believe that using local guides is important, as it helps generate local incomes and creates jobs, plus it offers a more authentic travel experience.
We recommend independent local hotels, lodges, guesthouses and campsites, rather than international chain hotels, which helps support local communities and allows you to experience true Thai hospitality. For example, Satri House in Luang Prabang promotes Laos culture through the traditional art of textile weaving and has created a center for fine silks and textile design in the city. In Vientiane, Salana Boutique Hotel supports Laos’ artisans by selling their locally made handicrafts at their souvenir shop.
This Laos vacation also includes the option for visiting cultural sites such as the Pak Ou Caves, temples and Buddha Park, with a local guide to explain context. Getting to know a destination and the diverse people who live there means that you will have a more authentic and meaningful travel experience.
