This two week day tour enables you to explore the must-see sights of Vientiane and Luang Prabang, as well as an off the beaten track adventure to the little visited and remote Khammoune Province. Khammoune is most famous for the spectacular Kong Lor Cave, over 7km long, as well as some of the most beautiful limestone karst scenery in Southeast Asia. You eventually depart from Laos by heading upstream on the Mekong and crossing back in to Northern Thailand.

Start your journey in the sense shattering city of Bangkok before flying to Eastern Thailand where you will stay in Khong Lor Village and explore the nearby caves which are one of the most impressive natural wonders in Laos. After time in and around the sleepy but enticing capital city, Vientiane you take the impressively scenic drive to Vang Vieng for some relaxation on the banks of the Nam Song River. Driving north you will reach the incredibly atmospheric city of Luang Prabang where saffron clad monks  emerge from the mist rolling off the Mekong River to collect alms.

The last part of this unforgettable trip involves boarding a boat for a 2 day cruise down the Mekong, taking in the hive of activity around the villages on the river banks before bedding down for the night in the riverside village of Pakbeng where you are sure to get a warm welcome.
