Many will fly into Luang Prabang, spending three or four days exploring its incredible temples and enjoying the wonderfully relaxed pace of life.
The mysterious Plain of Jars, one of Laos’ best kept treasures due to its remoteness lies a full day's drive south from Luang Prabang. To the south of Luang Prabang is Vang Vieng which offers opportunities for great caving, kayaing and trekking and Vientiane, a remarkable capital city.
Most people travelling to the far south of Laos will board a flight to Pakse with only the more intrepid travelling by road, passing through Savannakhet, Hin Boun, Thakhek and visiting such sites as the recently discovered 'Buddha caves'. Pakse is considered the gateway to southern Laos, an area that has only recently come onto the tourist map. The list of highlights is long and impressive, ranging from Si Phan Don, aka the 4000 Islands, to Wat Phou and Champasak and lying further east Tad Lo and the Bolaven Plateau.
