Tour description provided by Intrepid

Experience the dreamy essence of Laos on this short but enlightening tour. See how colonial mansions, tree-lined boulevards and gilded Buddhist temples impart a unique timelessness to charming Vientiane. Next, head to the former royal capital of Luang Prabang, which never fails to enchant visitors with its abundance of temples, faded French architecture, meditating monks and friendly local inhabitants. Join pilgrims at the sacred Pak Ou Caves and absorb a golden sunset from atop Phu Si Temple. Packed with arresting sights, alluring aromas and wonderful cuisine, this is the perfect introduction to a land seemingly lost in time.

Itinerary

Day 1 Vientiane
As the most relaxed capital in South-East Asia, Vientiane is a lovely mix of riverside calm, outstanding temples, fabulous food and charming locals.
Day 2 Luang Prabang
Nestled in the hills of northern Laos, the tranquil city of Luang Prabang is studded with ornate temples, brimming with colourful markets and enriched by French colonial architecture.
Day 3 Pak Ou Caves
Filled with hundreds of Buddha statues in a myriad of positions, Pak Ou Caves look out onto the Mekong and are a fascinating sight to see.
Days 4-5 Luang Prabang
Surrounded by water and coloured by the saffron robes of monks, Luang Prabang has been lovingly restored and retains an old-world charm.
