Luang Prabang Attractions And Landmarks Guide

Ancient Luang Prabang, which lies along the Mekong River in northern Laos, is one of Southeast Asia’s loveliest cities. Home to Buddhist temples, wats, and monasteries and heavily influenced architecturally by the French colonial period as well, it has become a popular R&R stop in the region and a base for outdoor adventures such as kayaking, trekking and mountain biking. The most atmospheric way to reach it is by river cruise ship.

Thai Indochina Tour October 2018

Thai Indochina Grand Tour

It was amazing, I did things, saw places and ate food I never thought I
would. It was probably the best adventure I’ve ever had and I did it with
a fabulous group of people.
I think it was seeing Angkor Wat, although we didn’t manage to see the
sunrise, it was overcast. The temple was something else.


We had three group leaders during the trip. They were all very good. The
tour leader we had for Cambodia was brilliant, she really went the extra mile
for us and was so pleasant and amusing.


Pack a lot lighter than I did, be prepared for more cold weather than you
expect, we had it pretty cool for best part of two weeks. Especially when you
are on the water. There’s lots of laundry opportunities.


The money can be confusing because of the amount of notes, usually about
eleven different ones, most places are more than happy with dollars. No
coins.

PtkkrBoth countries were great value.Laos is a country at the crossroads of
the direction it follows.The influence of China is self evident and sad.Im
grateful to see Laos as it is and not what it may become.
I think the Mekong River it was an incredible day finished by going to a huge
local wedding that night Also one of the group who overcame difficulties that
many people would not or could not.Always happy always supportive Made me
accept the need to succeed and work at finishing each day


They were what one would expect and did the job to a good level in both
countries Both guides were attentive and caring Thank you


Ride at your own pace and leave a little in reserve.If u like to descend at a
frantic pace allow a little caution potholes are a curse as are some of the
chinese trucks and cars not to mention odd domestic animals or small
children.Otherwise great fun


Be understanding that in some places facilities are basic and food as
well.This can vary greatly from day to day Laos is a great place accept it is
only opening up to our world slowly and it will be a great experience if one
enjoys the moment

Cycling in Laos

Far more than a holiday, this was a real experience. We travelled through
villages in Laos where the children and adults were genuinely pleased to see
you with the shouts of 'saibaedee' echoing from their homes. Children loved
to 'high five' as we pedalled through their village. Although the
temperatures were far higher than we had expected the team helped us through
with plenty of breaks for snacks and fluids. Each section brought another
satisfied smile.
Every day brought a new challenge. Rit, our group leader was an inspiration
himself, watching his cycling style gave me something to try to aim for,
although at a much slower pace!


Rit was a softly spoken but interesting and cheerful guide who kept us busy
from morning till night, He made sure we were looked after well and
everything went to plan. His organisation and planning was very good and
made the holiday run smoothly.


Make sure you are fit for the challenges ahead. March was hot and 'smoggy'
so possibly a time to avoid.


This was our first Exodus holiday but we are already planning where to go
next. Totally inspired with having been able to cycle and enjoy the
experience of being part of local life.

A great cycling holiday through the northern rural areas of Laos
So many inspirational moments. The stand outs for me being the welcoming
nature of the children and communities of the small rural townships, the
descent through the limestone mountains and the boat ride down the Mekong
River.


The group leaders were fantastic. Funny and sociable, yet all the time
keeping us informed, safe and on schedule.


Take your time to look around and enjoy what is happening around you.


The bike riding was fairly challenging in a couple of sections, particularly
if the weather was warmer, but a van and support crew were always available
to assist or provide a lift if required.

Great Bike Ride, lots of hill climbs and even more fast descents through
spectacular limestone mountains.
Riding past so many friendly villages , all waving and very friendly smiles
from all ages of people on the side of the roads.


The riding guides did a magnificent job , kept the faster people going fast
while looking after the slower riders and those stopping to take pictures,
the back up crew kept us fed and watered , and looked after anyone who wanted
a ride in the van , everybody was looked after.


This trip is not for inexperienced bike rider , but average fitness is good
enough.
If you like asian food , cycling , river trips and overnight trains as I do
this is the trip for you


There is a lot more to see in Laos but this trip was a great start
