Laos

Laos is fun-filled adventures, awesome activities, beautiful sunsets, stunning backdrops and gorgeous views. A journey through Laos shows you the stunning diversity of this country. Go buggy driving, water tubing or trekking in Vang Vieng. Enjoy the sleepy streets or go temple hopping in Vientiane. Explore Luang Prabang – the ultimate haven and one of the prettiest cities we have ever visited on our Laos trip.


Fun-filled adventures

Laos is filled with awesome adventures, gorgeous sunsets, amazing backdrops and jaw-droppingly beautiful scenery. You can explore the mountains for perfect picturesque views of the valley. Or you can go lagoon swimming, water tubing, zip lining, mountain climbing and kayaking. The activities on offer are endless, and the number of memorable experiences are countless. Make new travel buddies, or greet old ones. Or get to know the friendly locals at one of the hangout spots around town. Laos will leave you with awe-inspiring impressions and memories.


Gorgeous scenery

Beautiful sunsets, awesome backdrops of cliffs and gorgeous views of green paddy fields. The scenery around Laos is jaw-droppingly beautiful. Vang Vieng must be one of the places on earth with the most amazing sunsets. Everywhere you go, you can see the sky changing color when the suns sets behind the horizon. To add to this already beautiful backdrop, people are lighting up sky lanterns and hot air balloons starts flying.

We Have the Answers

Ask Us Anything

Laos is an all-year around destination, but there are two seasons; the dry and the rainy season. 

The rainy season runs from May through September, and the dry season runs from October through April.

The warmest months are typically from March through June. 

We absolutely loved Kuang Si Waterfall in Luang Prabang. This place is strikingly beautiful, and can not be missed.

We also had a blast in Vang Vieng as our inner adrenaline junkies went completely wild 🙂 

The currency in Laos is called Lao Kip (LAK). 

We recommend you to exchange your money upon arrival, as there are few ATMs in the cities. Credit cards are not widely accepted, and cash is king in Laos. 

It depends on where you go, where you stay and what you wish. 

Vang Vieng for example, is often referred to as a party town in Laos. We were a bit skeptical before visiting this place (not into that party scene), but it actually ended up being our favorite town in all of Laos. We even extended our stay here because we loved it so much! 

There’s a variety of transportation on offer in Laos, including private vans/cars, flights, buses etc.

Keep in mind that the roads are mainly dirt roads, which often causes problems during the rainy season if you are traveling by bus/car.  

Tipping is not a must in Laos, however, it is always nice to show your appreciation if you are happy with a service. We always tips our guides and drivers 🙂 

It depends on what type of accommodation you are accustomed to. 

If you are like us, with a mid-range budget you should be fine with USD 65 per day per person. This will get you comfortable accommodation, taxis, better restaurants and more activities. 

 

Absolutely! There are many hostels you can stay at, shared activities on offer and likeminded travelers like yourself. You will not  feel alone as you explore this amazing destination 🙂
