All our Laos  tours will bring you the destination as close as possible! Once known as the Kingdom of Lan Xang, or One Million Elephants, Laos was a prosperous kingdom. Today Laos is one of the poorest countries in South East Asia, but is growing in popularity as a travel destination.

For travellers wanting an authentic, cultural, and “off the beaten track” experience, Laos is the perfect destination. With wild jungles, beautiful countryside, and chilled out towns, Laos is often compared to Thailand thirty years ago. Laos people are very relaxed, and to really enjoy Laos, one must slow down and soak up the atmosphere at Laos speed!

Much of Laos is mountainous with the majority of people living in lowlands along the mighty Mekong River, which is the lifeblood of Laos and forms the border with Thailand and Burma. One of the most ethnically diverse countries in South East Asia, Laos is home to forty seven ethnic groups, most of whom have kept their own customs, dialects and traditional dress. 

The town of Luang Prabang is the leading attraction with its glittering ancient temples, saffron robed monks, authentic textile villages and sleepy riverside atmosphere. The mountainous north and southern provinces offer excellent opportunities for outdoor activities such as trekking, mountain biking, kayaking and canoeing. And the mysterious plain of jars promises fascination for all visitors.

For an authentic Laos holiday experience with your own private local guide in each location and travelling in comfort and style, experience Laos your way, with the leader in private Asia travel - GetAboutAsia. We also offer small group tours designed for a lower budget or solo travellers who still seek for an authentic experience! Contact your Asia Travel Expert now and create your personal itinerary!

"The trip was well organised, our fellow travellers were easy to get on with. We hope one day to have you organise another trip for us! We enjoyed Laos and Myanmar. " — Mr and Mrs Faragher, Shallow Bay, March 2019

"We had a great time, especially the boat trip on the Mekong. Guides were wonderful in Laos and Thailand." — Mr and Mrs Sweet, Perth, December 2018

"Our Laos cruise trip was really fabulous. We really enjoyed the excellent cabins, food, excursions and the very friendly staff make Pandaw very enjoyable. Thank you for all your help. We have just this morning paid our deposit on Arctic, through your sister company Chimu. Very excited about this!" — Mr and Mrs Pepperdine, Geelong, March 2018

"The trip went smoothly, the guides were all good and the logistics were seamless. The hotels were all good and conveniently located in the centre of town. The boat for the cruise on Ha Long Bay is starting to show its age - time for a newer boat. The hotel at Luang Prabang was lovely but not easy walking distance to the historic centre of town. I sense the only alternative would have been the Accor Three Nagas Hotel, which probably would have been more expensive - a tricky trade off. But these are minor quibbles, and designed to be helpful. Overall I have no complaint about the operation of the tour - all went very smoothly. Attached is my favourite photo of Angkor Wat. The time at Siem Reap seeing Angkor Wat and other temples nearby was the highlight for me." — Party from Canberra, Canberra, March 2018

"We enjoyed the Laos cruise and great to interact with the locals. Vientiane was wonderful and people very friendly." — Wright and Kershaw Family, Sydney, December 2017

"I thoroughly enjoyed the 3 countries visited. Cambodia and Laos especially. The hotels we great with rooftop bars and great location. All were very good. Everything went well - thank you for your help. I also recommend Vespa tour through Cambodia ruins off the beaten track " — Mrs Clark, Gold Coast, November 2017

"If you haven’t been to Asia but want to dip your toe in to see how you like it, try Laos and Myanmar, you won’t be disappointed. If it’s not with Girls On Tour I can thoroughly recommend GetAboutAsia who will ensure you have an amazing experience." — Girls on Tour , Australia, March 2017

"We have just finished a wonderful week with GetAboutAsia in Vientiane and Luang Prabang. Organisation, knowledge and helpfulness of the local tour guides was outstanding. Hotels were very central and of a high standard. In Vientiane the French restaurant in Ansara Hotel is said to be the best in the city, we were impressed." — Gavin and John, Gold Coast, January 2017

"I would just like to thank you for putting this trip together from start to finish at fairly short notice. Sometimes it may be the best way. We loved the laid back unhurried, friendly feel of Vientiane. One of the highlights for me was the night food market which I thought was unique. My wife really enjoyed the Buddha Park much more than she thought initially, and my son enjoyed the trek and waterfall swim." — Jarritt Family, Brisbane , January 2017

"The highlight was floating down the mighty Mekong in our own narrow boat. A very Indochine experience, very relaxing floating through mountain scenery on the way to another interesting destination. Our experience was totally enhanced by a truly excellent guide." — Mrs Reid and MRs Winsley, Cairns , October 2016

"My favourite place cannot be narrowed down to a place but a country, as I loved the rugged countryside of all of Laos, which we visited. As the guides were all first rate and the motels were all of a high standard I don't think that there are any changes necessary to make this a better trip." — Margaret Stubbs, Hobart, May 2016

"Just wanted to thank you and your ground operators for an excellent tour - The itinerary, hotels, food and guides were all excellent and your personal touch was also appreciated. The guides throughout were most kind, helpful and knowledgeable. We were not hassled to shop but appreciated the chance to visit a Hong villages etc and COPE in Laos. In all a lovely holiday - we have no hesitation in recommending GetAboutAsia and your affiliates and have already done so to people we met on the way. " — Mr and Mrs Macphee, Tarwin Lower, VIC, January 2016
