No detail has been overlooked at this exotic retreat, from French-Lao architecture to colourful Lao textiles to outdoor soaking tubs. In town, spot beautiful French buildings of the former Royal Palace before temple hopping around the country’s oldest and most sacred wats.

Day 4-6

MUANG LA, Laos

  • Swim in the crystal clear waters of nearby Ban Phavie waterfalls
  • Cross the river on a bamboo raft, the Muang La way

Between rice paddies and lush tree-laden mountains, green is the best word to describe this small countryside town.

Journey to Muang La and stop by the Tham Pak Ou limestone caves covered in images of Buddha. Check in to Muang La Lodge for two nights. Spend a morning surrounded by natural beauty whilst trekking to Ban Phavie and end with a refreshing dip in the waterfalls; enjoy wonderful views of the river and rice fields as you pass through local villages, tropical rainforest and streams.

Day 7-9

HANOI, Vietnam

Once settled, explore the historical sites of Vietnam’s former capital; discover ancient ruins as you learn about the 1,000 year old dynasties that lived here. Uncover the rustic countryside as you pedal through peaceful villages and stop for a delicious Vietnamese lunch at Dong Tam Hamlet.

Once you’ve relaxed by the pool in the shade of palm trees, stroll around Kampong Kleang to explore a floating village usually submerged in the water. Spend time in a local’s house and learn about their unique way of living over a fresh coconut juice. The following day, rise at dawn and set off in a tuk-tuk to watch the sun rise behind Angkor Wat. Traverse the majestic Angkor complex and listen to the fascinating story of the civilisation behind each temple.

Once you’re back on your tropical island, indulge in a treatment at the Zen garden spa or pedal along scenic nature trails – the perfect relaxing end to your Southeast Asian adventure.

Victoria & Jack

We’ll never forget our time in Luang Prabang, it’s the most wonderful place. We spent three nights of our honeymoon here waking up to the smell of coffee and croissants; exploring the jungle temples; shopping in the night market and so much more. It’s such a special place and we’d never have thought to include it without Katie‘s advice and encouragement. Thank you.
