Looking for greenery and cultural scenery? Look no further than Laos, the perfect destination for it. Upon arrival, you’ll just want to kick back and enjoy the smooth atmosphere that makes this country such a favorite for many. Combining Laos’ always serene natural environment with some of Southeast Asia’s most impressive temples, you’ll certainly have fond and vivid memories that you’ll cherish for a very long time.
Let’s start things off in the capital, Vientiane. Here, you’ll blend tours of glittering temples with treks to some of Laos’ most beautiful orchids. What’s a Vientiane tour without a stop at the impressive Wat Sisaket? Did you know it was spared by the Siamese during their invasion of 1827 because it looked, well, Siamese? And don’t forget Wat Phra Keo, another Lao temple with some Thai connections. The Emerald Buddha in Bangkok used to call this place home. And while you’re here, don’t forget to admire the Lao and Khmer works of art. Head to Laos’ holiest site, Phra That Luang, and end the day at Patuxay monument, Laos’ version of the Arc de Triomphe.
And those beautiful flowers? Trek along through Phou Khao Kway National Park, home to more than 50% of Laos’ wild orchid species. You’ll also spot elephants as well as indigenous wildlife. Good things come to those who wait. End your trek with a cool and refreshing dip at Tad Xay Waterfall.
Luang Prabang is an essential element to any Laos trip. So, off you go! Get a preview of the city from the top of Mount Phousi. Be warned. 328 steps await. But those panoramic views. Amazing and certainly worth it!
Rise early for a site like no other; long lines of orange robed monks collecting their morning alms. And we do mean rise early. Continue the green theme of this tour by exploring Luang Prabang on electric bicycle. Able to pedal like a bike and rev like a motorized one, the machine is 100% battery powered. No engines, no combustion, all Earth friendly. And see all the temples Luang Prabang has to offer on it. Certainly a highlight of the trip.
And a gem of a highlight is your final destination on this tour. Visit the scenic and always refreshing waters of Kuang Si Waterfall. Spend time here with a picnic lunch, short treks around the area or a cool swim in the pools. It’s up to you what you want to do.
This Green Laos Tour is perfect for those wanting to catch the natural and cultural highlights of this magical land-locked country where its laid back rhythm continues to flourish. Can you handle it?
