  Holidays to Laos  
An enigmatic and little-visited country, Laos has a long history and some fascinating sights for the visitor. It's a country little-touched by the outside world in comparison to her neighbours, with a small population and a traditional way of life. It's a destination of temples and markets, ancient history and present-day culture where the pace of life is slow but the welcome is warm. The ancient capital of Luang Prabang and the modern capital of Vientiane are the main highlights of a visit to this country. Both hold a wealth of historical interest, with Luang Prabang being the religious and Royal capital, whereas Vientiane holds power today and has a strong French colonial influence.

The Capital of Laos, Vientiane is an interesting city with a slow pace of life, situated on the banks of the mighty Mekong River. There's plenty of interest to see, with numerous temples demonstrating the city's long history. It's also worth spending a few nights in Luang Prabang, the Country's cultural and spiritual centre, and a good base for exploring the north of the Country.
There's an improving selection of places to stay in Laos, especially in Luang Prabang, the most popular place for foreign visitors. Outside of the main areas, options can be more limited. In recent years, standards generally have improved, and there are now some world-class hotels available throughout Laos.
Laos makes a great destination to combine with other locations in the region, giving the visitor a fascinating multicentre holiday. It's easy to combine Luang Prabang and Vientiane with numerous parts of Thailand, including Vietnam and Cambodia or Bangkok and the beaches of Thailand. We've put some suggestions here, but if your ideal combination isn't featured, just ask! Most visits to Laos run hassle-free, but do bear in mind that this is a lesser-developed country than other destinations in the area, and changes to flight schedules and hotel bookings can be made with no warning.
Bangkok acts as the main gateway to Indochina, with a wide selection of flights from the UK to here, and onward flights to most cities in the region, including Vientiane and Luang Prabang in Laos.
