What if we told you that life in Laos can get even more laid-back? If you don’t believe us, then you haven’t been to Southern Laos. Revel in the chill-out atmosphere and ambiance of the region with a boat ride along the Mekong. Discover beautiful treasures and artifacts while enjoying the exotic scenes of people living in southern Laos in our Wat Phou Cruise.

As the name suggests, one of the first sites you will see is Wat Phou. What is it anyway? What Phou is an ancient Khmer temple not too far away from Phu Kao Mountain. The site itself is believed to have originated from the 5th century and the remaining structures that you will see are from the 11th, 12th and 13th centuries. As with many other Khmer temples, Wat Phou was originally a Hindu temple that later changed to a Buddhist site of worship.

After a peaceful night on aboard followed by a hearty breakfast, head over to Sipandon. Yes, these are the 4000 islands. The concept of chill-out takes on a whole new meaning here. Most of the islands are small enough for you to get around by foot, but a bicycle might be necessary to reach some of the further ones. Bikes can be rented at just about anywhere, so no worries there. While you are down here, take the time to absorb the culture at the traditional Lao village of Ban Dua Tae.

Want to know why the Mekong River is not navigable into China? Meet the answer in Pha Pheng Falls. The waterfall’s 21-meter height and segmented cascades are a sight to behold, along with the always clear blue waters. The Mekong Giant Catfish, believed to be the largest freshwater fish in the world resides in these waters.

There’s no place like Laos. Everyone has mentioned of its laid-back ambiance and overall chill-out atmosphere. Why not experience it for your self with one of our Laos tours? Just a warning, be prepared to chill like you’ve never chilled before.
