Real Thailand & Laos

This 14-day exploration of the South East Asian countryside is sure to keep you guessing at every turn. Kick off in old Bangkok, wind through northern Thailand with some fun times in Chiang Mai, then cross the border into Laos where you’ll be able to see the authentic side to this landlocked country. Cruise on the mighty Mekong, laze in Laos’ beauty queen Luang Prabang, love on nature in Vang Vieng and finish up in sleepy Vientiane. You know they’re a welcoming bunch when you cross something called the Friendship Bridge. Take a leaf out of the Laotians book and make a few new friends in this part of the world.

  • Two days of cruising down the Mekong River in a traditional-style boat is one Southeast Asia’s classic trips, with more photo-ops than you can shake a bamboo cane at.

  • You know those pictures of that Laos lagoon, the ones of cascading pools drenched in gorgeous rays of sun? That’s Kuang Si Waterfalls, and you’ll have the chance to swim there!
