Itinerary

Laos on a Shoestring

Day 1 - Vientiane

Arrive at any time. There are no activities planned until an evening welcome meeting.

Day 2 - Vientiane/Vang Vieng

Enjoy the beautiful limestone karsts surrounding Vang Vieng. Free time to hike, bike, swim or go caving. A picturesque drive north takes us to beautiful Vang Vieng. This quiet town is set along the Nam Song river amidst rice fields and limestone karsts.

Day 3 - Vang Vieng

Free time to explore Vang Vieng. Opt to explore some of the caves by bicycle or take an invigorating walk. In the evening, soak in the natural beauty of the countryside as the sun sets over the river. Feel like a full-day kayaking and caving adventure is more your speed? Pre-book the Vang Vieng Adrenaline Bundle on the checkout page to include this optional activity on your tour.

Day 4 - Vang Vieng/Luang Prabang

This morning travel from Vang Vieng to Luang Prabang. Get your bearings with a CEO-led orientation walk. This evening enjoy learning about local delicacies at the night market on Walking Street.

Day 5 - Luang Prabang

Witness the giving of alms to the Buddhist monks and visit the night market. Opt to take a cooking class, visit temples or cool off at Kuang Si Waterfalls. Traditional Laotian culture is to give daily alms to monks. Monks are only allowed to eat food which has been donated to them before noon. On one of your mornings here, you may decide to rise with the sun, and watch one of the most important religious ceremonies in Laos. This is simply an unforgettable Southeast Asian experience.

Day 6 - Luang Prabang/Pak Beng

Cruise the Mekong on a long houseboat before arriving at a village homestay for the night. We board our boat for the two-day journey up the mighty Mekong River making our way to Chiang Khong.

Day 7 - Pak Beng/Chiang Khong

Mekong River travel day. Cross into Thailand. This morning we re-board our boat and continue our leisurely cruise along the river before arriving at the Laos/Thai border and crossing to Chiang Khong in the late afternoon.

Day 8 - Chiang Khong/Chiang Mai

Drive to Chiang Mai. Opt to visit Doi Suthep temple, catch a Thai boxing match or grab a bargain at the famous night market. Departing Chiang Khong after breakfast, we drive to Chiang Mai where you have the afternoon free to explore this fascinating city, once the capital of the Kingdom of Lan.

Day 9 - Chiang Mai

Depart at any time.
