ANCIENT LAOS TOUR

Serene Laos is one of Asia’s most unvisited and charming countries, still retaining its colonial character from the time of Laos’s kingdom. This tour allows you to experience the gorgeous unspoiled forest that teems with fauna and flora, splendid landscape and river scenery. You will gain an insight into the lives of the local people and see how their lifestyles are slowly emerging from years of isolation from the outside world.
