BACKPACKING Laos (Dec 4 – 9, 2017)

Luang Prabang + Vang Vieng + Vientiane, Laos

Introducing BACKPACKING Laos, Travel Factor’s newest offering in the Southeast Asia region. Let us take you to this idyll Buddhist country that is often overlooked in the Indochina trails yet offers a lot of potential for adventure and action.

First, we’ll fly into the ancient town of Luang Prabang situated in Northern Laos. It is considered by many travelers as being the heart of Laotian culture. It was also designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995. We then take a road trip deep into Laos and into the adventure town of Vang Vieng, where limestone cliffs jut out of rice paddies and where loads of activities and massive relaxation await you. Experience their river tubing in Nam Song River. From Vang Vieng, it's a 4-hour drive to Laotian capital, Vientiane, roam around its environs: a unique blend of Buddhist influence and French colonization. You’ll be surprised how Laos will charm you.
