The idea of visiting Laos came about from various discussions with people who had traveled all over Southeast Asia. While they loved Cambodia, treasured the southern coast of Thailand, and greatly enjoyed the vibrancy of Vietnam, many of them explained that if you were looking for an off-the-beaten-path adventure then head to Laos.
So off on a night bus from Chiang Mai to the border and then another long bus ride through the twisty jungle until eventually we landed in a somewhat soggy Luang Prabang. From there it was just days of exploring temples, the Mekong and a fair number of French-inspired coffee shops.
THE BEST TIME TO VISIT
October - April for warm and dry weather; and November - January for boating on the Mekong River.
THE TOP ADVENTURES
Exploring the exciting town of Vang Vieng, kayaking the Nam Song River or 4,000 Islands, and checking out the many limestone caves.
TIME NEEDED TO EXPLORE
2 - 3 weeks to make sure you can do all of the major adventures.
