Luang Prabang

— 5 nights
Designated a World Heritage Site in 1995, Luang Prabang sits at the meeting point of two rivers and offers numerous opportunities for sailing, climbing, and exploring scenic caves and waterfalls.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to MandaLao Elephant Conservation and Walking tours. Step out of Luang Prabang with an excursion to 100 Waterfalls in Nong Khiaw--about 52 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: wander the wide-open spaces of Laos Buffalo Dairy, don't miss a visit to Alms Giving Ceremony, admire the sheer force of Kuang Si Waterfall, and take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Phousi.

Vientiane

The riverside capital of Laos, Vientiane still has a relatively small urban area and a laid-back, relaxed feel to it.

Long overlooked by travelers due to its reputation as one of the world's poorest nations, Laos is drawing a growing number of visitors with its laid-back charm, natural beauty, and numerous archaeological sites and historic temples. Many visitors make the trip to Laos from nearby Thailand, combining the two neighboring countries into one memorable experience of Southeast Asia. Others focus their Laos vacation on the Mekong River, which serves as a major source of irrigation for local farms and represents a popular alternative for sightseeing by car. On top of the rich cultural heritage and impressive natural landscapes, its major treasure remains its people--friendly and devout Buddhists welcoming visitors with a genuine hospitality rarely felt in other parts of the world.
