Itinerary

Glide along the famous city khlongs in a longtail boat for a great introduction to Bangkok. Visit Bangkok's oldest temple and then board an overnight train bound for Nong Khai.
Cross the mighty Mekong and travel onwards to Vientiane. Scour the market for bargains or wander the gilded Pha That Luang. When bellies rumble, dine at the Intrepid Foundation-supported Makphet Restaurant, a local business that provides education and training to street kids in Vientiane.
Head north to the backpacker mecca of Vang Vieng. Chill out riverside or hire a bike and explore nearby caves.
Peruse a local arts museum then take a jumbo, Laos’ version of a tuk-tuk, out to Kuang Si Falls for a refreshing dip.
Fly to the sleepy southern town of Pakse. Gain an insight into the lives of the local tribespeople while travelling across the Bolaven Plateau.
Hire a bike to explore the island, famous for its cultivation of coconut and bamboo, or simply laze the day away in a hammock.
Visit a silk weaving centre that provides jobs for local women while on the way to Kratie. Get a taste of island life during a local family homestay on Koh Trong.
Sample fried spiders in Skuon en route to Phnom Penh. In the capital, make a sobering visit to S-21 prison and the Killing Fields.
Discover elaborate temples and awe-inspiring architecture. A visit to the mysterious Ta Prohm is a must, as is seeing a remarkable Angkor sunset.
