Laos – the hidden gem of the region is after years of unrest and uncertainty like a chrysalis slowly emerging from its cocoon - revealing its stunning beauty. It’s a country overflowing with spectacular sights, glorious scenery, mouth-watering food and truly delightful people. Wandering mists drift slowly across high mountain peaks. The silence of the dawn is broken by the sound of chanting, as Monks leave their morning prayers and go in search of alms in the towns and villages. Their saffron robes shimmer, in the suns first rays. Mysterious plains are scattered with ancient relics. Mighty rivers, with small isolated villages dotting the banks, constantly fight back the verdant jungle, encroaching, on their already fragile ecological existence. Life is slow. Life is traditional. No mad rush here – the Laotians are laid back. Laos is still unspoilt – a gentle country with an ageless charm– and, relatively speaking - still ‘off the beaten track’ of mainstream tourism. However, for many, this lack of sophistication is the attraction of Laos, with the genuine warmth and hospitality of the people.

It is with much gratitude & appreciation to yourself from my Mother, and myself for our wonderful 'holiday', more an 'experience', that you receive this communication.

The itinerary was excellent, although very busy, but if we had not more or less stuck to the itinerary we would not have seen as much as we did!! As I mentioned to you on the phone, we did…
