Follow the Mekong River and uncover the secrets of Laos. From the bustle of Bangkok, you find a quieter South East Asia in the north of Thailand and an even more tranquil one still when you cross into Laos. The regal temples, with spires pointing towards the heavens, extol the glories of Theravada Buddhism. The mysterious Plain of Jars exemplifies the remoteness of some of Laos' key attractions. Meanwhile the Mekong River threads its way through the country, supporting communities that include its laid-back capital, Vientiane, which still maintains an ambiance that borrows from both ancient Lao traditions and colonial French influences. The south of the east-west course of the river below Vientiane lies the AnchorKhorat Plateau, which embraces almost all of the Thai portion of the basin as well as the lower parts of the Mekong’s Laotian tributaries. This is an area of gently rolling hills set amid relatively flat alluvial plains. Soils and deciduous vegetation on the hills are thin, and much of the original forest has been replaced by grassland as a result of grazing and repeated burning. To the northern highlands have highly folded ranges that reach elevations of about 9,000 feet (2,700 meters) above sea level, many with steep slopes. As far south as Vientiane, welcome to Luang Prabang, UNESCO World Heritage Site, and confluence of the Mekong and Khan Rivers.  There are many sites to visit around this beautiful town and the best way to explore is by boat. We have designed trips which bring you to the wonderful surrounds of Luang Prabang and allow you to experience the most beautiful sections of the Mekong River.
