This trip is designed for tourists who wish to discover the ancient Laos with the highlights of Vientiane and the peaceful Luang Prabang.
The Lao People's Democratic Republic, or Lao PDR, is a country that moves to its own measure of time. Life flows along at a languid pace which mirrors the waters of the Mekong River that flows through the country. Towns are less hectic than elsewhere in Asia and the countryside is a rare combination of beauty and tranquillity.
PASSPORT AND VISA
At least 6 month valid passport is accepted prior entering Laos. Visa is required for entry into Lao PDR. A regular tourist visa is valid for up to 30 days, and may be issued upon arrival at any land international immigration checkpoints to Laos including by air Vientiane's Wattay Airport, Luang Prabang Airport and Pakse Airport from US$18.00-US$45.00 per person subject to tourist passport holding (remember to bring a 2pcs of color photo as the same as passport size is required, application form is available at immigration counter).
Luang Prabang has been claimed by the UNESCO to be ‘the best preserved city in South East Asia’. During our time here, we visit the impressive stupa of Wat Visoun and the shrine of Wat Aham, Wat Mai, we then climb up to the top of mount Phousi for an enjoyable exploration of the sacred, gilded stupa as well as a panoramic view of the city at sunset and the Mekong River.
This 6 day – 5 night trip takes you to Xiengkhouang, an area situated in the north of Laos, famous for the mysterious Plain of Jars which are stone jars in different sizes carved out of solid rock scattered all over a plateau. Its historical archaeology traces back more than 2500 – 5000 years, and its purpose is still unknown to scientists. The Indochina war began here in the secret land of Laos and on this tour you will see the after war-affects on ancient sites.
