Asia Safari Laos takes you on lavish bespoke adventures in Southeast Asia
For the adventurous traveller, one of the best ways to enter the distant lands of Laos is through the luxurious tours offered by Asia Safari. Since 2009, this outfit has specialized in establishing a comfortable and impressive route of exploration in the hills and river valleys of this landlocked nation. Asia Safari Laos has developed a series of beautiful resorts and reliable transport options that will take you on a complete circuit of the country, or allow you to linger for several days in a single locale, enjoying some of the most spectacular tropical settings on the Asian continent. As one of the few touring agencies that encourage bespoken schedules in the region, Asia Safari Laos can deliver unique travelling experiences that not many other luxury outfits can arrange.
The Luxuries Along the Broad Rivers
The mountainous regions of Southeast Asia are a kind of El Dorado, a true reservoir of the last untouched jungles on earth. In the gorgeous and green tropical rainforests of Laos there is a real sense of return to a time before civilization. Yet Laos remains a beautiful and hospitable country, with a reliable infrastructure. River travel is invariably quiet and relaxing. Side trips into distant mountain villages deliver fascinating glimpses into vast terraces of rice farming and countryside temples. Asia Safari Laos has created two basic variations on this touring theme, with the North and South of the country as reference points. If your preference is to study the natural world, you may prefer the Northern Circuit, or the Variant North to South route, both of which will take you far into the Southeast Asian wilderness.
Rest and Relaxation in a Tropical City
If you prefer to remain in urban areas, Asia Safari Laos has prepared a regular series of tours that progress through some of the largest cities in the country, such as Luang Prabang, near the centre of the northern half of the country, and Vientiane, the capital city near the border with Thailand. Each city you visit is filled with the sights and sounds of a lost world, a less industrial place where time passes slowly. Monuments to the Indonesian wars of the last century are open to the public, and the ever-present Buddhist temples always impress with their lofty architecture. The influence of French rule remains evident in the wonderful array of restaurants and hotels available in these towns. Asia Safari Laos will gladly provide translation services in both the local and commonly accept French languages.
Enjoying the Jungle in a Luxury Suite
For a simple resting vacation in the comfort of luxurious surrounding, Asia Safari Laos offers the resort hotel of Muang La, located along the Nam Pak River near the centre of the country. With a private terrace for each suite, offering views of a delicate tropical garden, a spa adjacent to a natural hot spring, and a full bar open to all guests, this charming little diamond of a resort delights visitors with its simple but luxurious style. Guests can visit the local villages where festivals are common as well.
