WELCOME TO LAOS
Mysterious, landlocked Laos is less developed and less visited than it’s neighbours. A beautiful landscape of misty mountains, rolling hills and historic cities. Luang Prabang is particularly stunning with golden temples and pretty streets.
- Explore the historical city of Luang Prabang
- Stay in a treehouse high above the forest at the Gibbon Experience
- Marvel at the stunning three tiered Kuang Si waterfall
- Experience the wonder of the festival of the lights
- Head to the remote villages such as Nong Khiaw in the northern hills
EXPLORE BY AREA
Food in Laos is more distinctive than you might expect. You might notice some dishes that are similar to those found in northern Thailand but generally they are not as spicy. Like Vietnam, Laos was once a French colony with some influences on the food.

Little Amy Tours in Laos
Lhai Heua Fai (festival of the lights) celebrates the end of Boun Awk Phansa (Buddhist Lent). It feels like Easter, Christmas and new year all rolled into one. Luang Prabang feels magical and is covered with delicate, handmade lanterns. The last day of the festival fell on my birthday, when hundreds of people flood into the city for the boat competition.
