Laos holidays are filled with cities built on French colonial architecture, ventures into mountainous regions in search of traditional hill tribe interactions and explorations of ancient Buddhist monasteries and temples. Though one of the poorest countries in South East Asia, Laos packs its fair share of travel icons; here visitors are drawn to the mysterious Plane of Jars, a field filled with large stone jars or pots with no common understanding of their use or purpose.

Laos’ cities hold as much charm and allure as the untouched countryside. More of a large town, the enchanting capital Vientiane is home to wide boulevards, faded colonial architecture, picturesque temples and riverside cafés. With an exquisite temple on every corner, saffron-clad monks silently collect alms in Luang Prabang, Laos' religious centre. Laos is also building its reputation as an eco-tourism destination, so visitors can combine trekking with a homestay in the north and join in the daily activities of the villagers.

One of the more unique ways to explore the country is to include a relaxing river cruise to your Laos holiday. Take a seat on the wooden deck of your vessel and slip gently up the mighty Mekong, watching rural communities and ancient temples slide past your view. This river is the lifeblood of the country, and this journey takes travellers up through the countryside to explore authentic Laos away from the major tourist hotspots.

Known as the ‘land of a million’ elephants, Laos is often overlooked by visitors to South-East Asia, but to do so would be a mistake. Any trip should include some time spent in Luang Prabang to discover just why it’s a UNESCO World Heritage site. At sunrise everyday in this beautiful city, up to 200 monks in their saffron-coloured roads proceed through the streets in a ceremony dating back to the 14th century. They collect alms from locals and visitors alike, kneeling respectfully at the side of road and offering food to the monks as they pass through.

Stefanie's Tips
1
Head south to visit Si Phan Don, or Four Thousand Islands. During rainy season this 50km stretch of the Mekong River can reach14km wide.
2
Visit the Xhiangkhoang Plateau, home to an enigmatic archaeological site known as the Plain of Jars.
3
Buddhism is a strong influence in Laos, wonderfully seen in the Pak Ou caves, filled with over 4,000 Buddhas of all shapes and sizes.
