Laos Cultural Holidays

Our wonderful ‘Cultural Laos 4,000 Islands tour is perfect for those who really want to get under the skin of this fascinating country, but in a much more leisurely way.

This tour starts off in Laos’s capital, Vientiane, where you will get to explore all corners of this lovely capital. What makes Vientiane so nice to visit, is that it is not at all busy like other capital cities. The city also has so much character and fabulous Wats and museums to discover, as well as the famous That Luang Golden Stupa, which stands proud as the nation’s icon. In town, you will also visit the quirky Buddha Park before travelling south to the towns of Sin Hinboun, Thakhae and Savannakhet, where you will enjoy the end of your holiday boating around the gloriously picturesque 4,000 Islands.

In Sin Hinborn you will explore some beautiful cave systems and countryside littered with limestone mountains. In Savannakhet, you will come face to face with some stunning French architecture. And in the 4,000 Islands, you will discover quiet islands, fascinating people and the stunning temple of Wat Phu, which should be on everyone’s bucket list. You then have time to sit back and relax on the banks of the Mekong and take time to enjoy this most peaceful part of Asia.
