Daily Itinerary

Day 01 Luang Prabang to Vang Vieng (L)

You'll depart from Luang Prabang with a local guide and head south to Vang Vieng on a mountain road. The drive is among the most beautiful in Laos, winding up and down and offering spectacular views, from jungle to low-lying valleys studded with the limestone Karst formations. We'll stop at Phoukhoune, with its lively market and fresh air, and visit local hill-tribe villages along the way, stopping for lunch at a local restaurant.

After lunch, we continue south to Vang Vieng, with its lively atmosphere and famous landscape. Have your camera ready out for a photo-op at Pathang you won’t want to miss. As we arrive at at Vang Vieng, we'll stop at an organic farm just outside the town centre. Afterwards, we’ll take a small boat on the Nam Song River to Vang Vieng. You'll spend the night in your selected hotel in Vang Vieng.

Note: the boat trip is subject to favourable weather conditions and water levels – if not suitable, the return to Vang Vieng will be by road. *Optionally, you can explore another side Nam Song River and the Vang Vieng landscape by a guided bike tour.

Day 02 Vang Vieng to Vientiane (B/L)

After breakfast at your hotel, we'll leave Vang Vieng for Vientiane, the capital and largest city of Lao PDR. On the way, we will stop at a huge fish market in Ban Tha Heua where you can see a selection of the abundance of fish indigenous to Laos.  Upon arrival, we’ll enjoy lunch and then introduce you to the city with a tour of Wat Sisaket, Pho Prakeo, Patuasay, and That Luang. We’ll guide you through the highlights of the city and its history on the afternoon tour.
