Bangkok, Thailand (PRWEB) April 16, 2013

The four-day, three-night tour sets families in the heartland of Luang Prabang and begins with an environmentally friendly expedition around the region on electric bikes powered by battery, on the way exploring the iconic temples and Royal Palace which now exists at the country’s National Museum.

One morning of the tailored tour also provides the chance to see the fascinating early-morning alms collection procession, as locals rise early to pay tribute to a long line of local monks. Families will also have the chance to visit the Kuang Si Waterfalls, renowned as one of the most spectacular sites of natural beauty in the beautiful country, as well as climb the steps to Mount Phousi to observe a spectacular sunset over the surrounding region.

Chances to interact with locals are provided throughout the tailored tour, and travelers will be able to visit a traditional hill tribe market to haggle and barter for bargains and see the traditional day to day life of local villages.

The Laos tour also provides the opportunity to absorb about the olden-day ways of the country with the option of studying traditional fishing techniques, the secrets of panning for gold in the Mekong or learning first-hand the effort that goes into rice farming at the Kamu Lodge, a rustic retreat set on the banks of the Mekong.

“This tailored tour of lovely Luang Prabang welcomes visitors to experience the laid-back lifestyle and family-oriented nation of Laos,” said Backyard Travel’s General Manager Maeve Nolan. “The trip includes many family-friendly activities filled with opportunities to learn about the culture and traditions of the country, as well as visits to areas of extreme natural and man-made beauty.”
