Why Book this tour
This fantastic tour is a real in-depth look at Laos, one of Indochina's most charming and least visited destinations. The tour is designed to take you beyond the main visited cities of Luang Prabang and Vientiane. You will see more remote parts of the country such as Phonsavan and the 4000 islands region deep in the south. The tour also gives you the chance to sample a little of Thailand too.
