Vientiane-Laos & Myanmar

Laos

The kingdom of a million elephants

Landlocked between its much larger neighbors Thailand and Vietnam, this beauty of a Southeast Asian country is slowly becoming a better-known travel destination. And for good reason: pristine nature, intact traditional culture and a relaxed national attitude welcome visitors to discover all that is Laos for themselves.

The premier destination is the royal city of Luang Prabang, a UNESCO World Heritage site, exceptionally lovely and languid with its charming mix of Buddhist temples, French colonial era architecture and an early morning procession of silent monks in saffron robes.

Kayaking, biking and communal trekking are great ways to view gorgeous Laotian nature and meet friendly locals. The still sleepy capital of Vientiane is a good place to end your trek, perhaps with a cold Beerlao in one of the many beer gardens situated among the banks of the Mekong River.

Myanmar

A step back in time

The beautiful country of Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, has much to offer.
Long-suffering locals eagerly welcome visitors to their isolated country.Some of the most amazing Buddhist shrines in Asia are the pagodas of Myanmar and a visit to Bagan offers over 2000 well-preserved examples from the 11th and 13th century.
Be sure to stop by a lacquerware workshop while there.Opportunities abound for ecotourism, trekking and safaris and there are several Buddhist retreats for the serious traveler. Enjoy water sports on lovely beaches at undeveloped coastal resorts.
Catch a traditional theatre, dance or marionette performances and include a stop in Mandalay, the cultural soul of the country, and in Yangon, a most charmingly dilapidated and evergreen city with tropical parks and lakes.
A trip to Burma is a step back in time for old-world adventure travel, Asian-style.
