From the energy of Bangkok to the calm of Laos, this trip is a study in contrasts. Visit temples in Chiang Mai then spend the evening exploring the night market. Sail the Mekong into the heart and soul of Laos. An experienced Chief Experience Officer (CEO) will make sure you get the most out of your tour, but will leave plenty of time for you to do your own thing. We utilize many forms of transport (both public and private) to maximize time spent exploring the history and culture of this unforgettable region.

Highlights

    • Explore Bangkok's canals
    • Discover Buddhist temples
    • Float down the mighty Mekong River
    • Get wet in the spray of waterfalls

This tour packed a lot of variety into a short time. Having the beauty and tranquility of rural Laos "bookended" by the bustle of Bangkok and the frenzy of Hanoi made for a great contrast. We got an excellent taste of the region and wish we could have stayed longer! Kris was the best leader we have had on our tour yet!

i would say this was an excellent trip, with a wonderful group (size was perfect - 8 people) and a great tour leader (CAT was enthusiastic, funny and always available). The itinerary was really good (beautiful landscapes,lovely people,memorable faces). We had access to a bit of everything (adventure, culture, enjoyment, free time). Well organized. Rewarding and marvelous experience Congratulations !

I really enjoyed the tour. I thought the pacing was good. I really liked the combination of included activities and all the time we had to do things on our own. I didn't feel like we were a bunch of sheep travelling from one monument to another.

I was very impressed by the tour and am sad to leave my group and my great tour guide. It was great having a planned itinerary, transportation and accommodation all taken care for me. Bhavinee, the guide was phenomenal and I would happily follow her wherever she would lead me. Because of the itinerary and the world class tour guide I will definitely travel again with them.
