The eight-day, seven-night ‘Highlights of Laos’ tour begins in romantic Luang Prabang, where travelers can investigate the spiritual side of the fascinating nation.
The tour visits key destinations such as Wat Xieng Thong, Wat Mai and the former Royal Palace which now stands as the National Museum before taking travelers on a scenic cruise to the Pak Ou Caves to see the hundreds of miniature Buddha sculptures crammed inside the local pilgrimage site.
Also in laid-back Luang Prabang, the trip pays visit to the majestic Kuang Si Waterfalls, a three-tier waterfall that underlines Luang Prabang’s status as one of the most beautiful regions of natural beauty in Southeast Asia.
Once in Vientiane travelers can experience charming holy sites such as That Luang, Wat Phra Keo, That Dam, Putaxai Monument and Wat Sisaket escorted by an expert local guide who will share their extensive knowledge of the city’s history along the way.
En route to Siphandon the insider tour then stops at captivating Champasak to visit the spectacular pre-Angkorian temple Wat Phou.
The exciting journey then arrives in Siphandon (also known as the 4,000 Islands) to spend time touring around the relaxing isle of Don Khone, one of the most important islands found in the magical Mekong River – a wonderful way to climax a trip of discovery.
“Our new Laos tour offers the chance to see the top attractions in Luang Prabang, Vientiane, Champasak and the 4,000 Islands,” said Backyard Travel’s General Manager Maeve Nolan. “We hope this tour will open up the romantic, spiritual side of laid-back Laos to travelers who crave experience insider experiences.”
