Vietnam Cambodia Laos & Northern Thailand - Laos (Chapter)
This is the Laos chapter from Lonely Planet’s Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos & Northern Thailand guidebook.
The ‘Land of a Million Elephants’ oozes magic the moment you spot a Hmong tribeswoman looming from the mist, trek through a glimmering rice paddy, or hear the sonorous call of one of the country’s endangered gibbons. Be it flying along mountain zip-lines, elephant riding, exploring subterranean caves or traversing the jungle via dirt-bike, Laos will indelibly burn itself into your memory.
- explore the fabled city of Luang Prabang to find French cuisine, Buddhist temples, colonial villas, stunning river views and some of the best boutique accommodation in Southeast Asia
- take a boat ride through the exhilarating yet spooky 7.5km Tham Kong Lo, home to fist-sized spiders and stalactite woods, whilst tackling the three-day ‘Loop’ by dirt-bike
- zip through the treetops and sleep among the wild things in a cosy jungle tree house on the Gibbon Experience in Huay Xai, Laos’ premier eco adventure
- restaurants & accommodation
