    Palaces and Pagodas

    Explore friendly Laos from hotel bases in Vientiane and Luang Prabang

    This is a bit less adventuresome than Laos: Meandering the Mekong and perhaps better suited to those seeking a more moderate pace and additional creature comforts. Each night, you will be based in a comfortable hotel in Vientiane or Luang Prabang, and each day you will take guided excursions to explore the aspects of history, Buddhism, nature, and culture which most appeal to you. Many visitors feel that Laos is the most photogenic and serene country in southeast Asia. Orange-robed monks tending to their rites in golden-roofed temples are commonplace. You will savor the crafts, culture, and hospitality of Laos with a Mekong River trip, visits to ancient Buddhist  temples, a gorgeous palace filed with gold objects, and traditional villages. Laos offers superb handicrafts, including beautiful woven silk textiles, which you will be able to purchase directly from local artisans. This trip includes comfortable hotels, intimate cultural encounters, and the services of a skilled, multilingual guide.
