Guide how to choose your ideal Laos Tour

If you are a bit overwhelmed amongst many best Laos Tours, make sure to check out our six basic steps to find out which tour suit you the best:

Step 1: Deciding the length of your Laos Tour

Since each Laos Tour has a different duration, you would need to decide how many days are you going to spend exploring Laos. Are you going on a short trip of 3 days? A week? A couple of weeks? Or a month? Trying to figure out your total number of days and start from there. To give you an idea, the classic Laos highlight tours usually roughly last from 08 to 14 days.

Step 2: Choose your Laos Tour Style

The next step after deciding the duration of your dream tour is choosing which Laos tour suits your taste. If you simply want to explore the highlights of some prominent destinations in Laos, Classic Highlights theme might be the perfect theme; or if you are truly a gastronomy enthusiast, Culinary Tours shouldn't be missed.

Step 3: Find out which are your favourite destinations in Laos

Despite its size, with its heritage sites, atmospheric Buddhist temples and stunning mountainous landscapes, Laos finds it easy to be one of the most attractive countries in Southeast Asia. Take a peek at our Laos Destinations and you will definitely have a ‘back-in-time’ feel to the authentic local ambience in serene Luang Prabang or in little gem Si Phan Don Islands which is famous for its ‘Four Thousand Islands’.

Step 4: What are the activities you would like to take in your Laos Tour?

Since landlocked Laos is the least-known of the Indochina regions, it might be a bit difficult for you to know what should do in this country. If you do not know yet, Laos is home of many great nature activities such as kayaking, zip-line, trekking and mountain biking. Spending time to read through the highlights and tour summaries to find out which activities attract you most.

Step 5: Read the detailed itinerary

If you have found your desired Laos Tour, you should spend a short time to take a look at the detailed itinerary to know which type of experiences you will have in each day, where are you going to stay and what are inclusions & exclusions.

Laos Travel Guides & Inspirations

Laos Travel Tour FAQs

Where should I visit in Laos on my 1st-time tour routes?

A classic Laos tour is recommended for travellers in their first time here. The tours include the most popular Laos attractions for a long time such as Luang Prabang, Vang Vieng, and Vientiane. Laos tourism first developed in these places so they are often mentioned as parts of a standard itinerary. Nowadays, several places in remote Northern and destinations to the South are emerging attractions where could offer you a great slice of Laos with some kinds of cool stuff.

How long do I need to explore Laos?

For a basic route of Laos discovery, a stay within a week could be reasonable. But it’s better to have a stay at least 10 days in Laos so that you can leisurely discover the sleepy beauty of this landlocked country while traversing prominent places from the North to the South or vice versa.

What is the best time to visit Laos?

The recommended time to visit Laos is during the cool season which lasts from late October to early April next year when the weather is temperate and pretty clear. This is also the peak travel season in Laos when almost prominent places will be busy. If you prefer a quieter atmosphere, the rainy season during the summertime is not a bad idea as the sceneries turn lush green everywhere and waterfalls start to expand their flowings. Just be aware of rainfalls but they might last not too long.

Which destinations should I visit in Laos?

Laos is famous for less-visited destinations, authentic local life, and untouched nature. Popular attractions that are preferred by many tourists are Vientiane, Luang Prabang with cultural heritages, Xiang Khuang with mysterious Plain of Jars, Vang Vieng, Nong Khiaw, Huay Xai, Champasak with jaw-dropping trekking routes and exciting nature adventures, etc.

Is tipping mandatory in Laos?

Tipping is not customary in Laos. However, great service is probably deserved to be encouraged. Depending on your personal satisfaction, you can tip someone who did a great job and offered you excellent service when in Laos.

Is food in Laos safe and clean?

Laos food is known to be safe and clean. However, if you’re cautious of your digestive system, make sure that you eat well-cooked dishes or peeled fruits. Food in night markets is not really a smart option for your meals if you’re sensitive to street food. Also, tap water is not recommended to drink directly in Laos.

Do I need an address in the Lao language for airport taxi drivers?

Not really. You can capture the photos of your hotel and its address beforehand for an easier process. For more assurance, you can contact your hotel and book pick up service from them in advance. Or else, you can ask assistance from staff in counters at the exit door of the airport. You just need to tell them where you want to go in English then they will give the taxi driver a piece of paper with all the necessary info.

Best Laos SIM card to buy

Laos has 4 main GSM network operators: Unitel, Laotel, TPlus (formerly Beeline), and ETL. The most common is Unitel that is claimed to be “the best operator in Laos”. Unitel’s network covers almost the regions in the country (around 97%) while others could have limited networks in some regions. You’d better check their coverages on location first before buying a SIM card in Laos.

What is Laos preferred currency?

Laos official currency is the Lao kip. You’d better exchange an amount of kip to purchase smoothly in Laos. US Dollar is also accepted in bigger cities, particularly in restaurants. Basically, you’d better use Dollar when buying expensive items that cost a large amount of kip. In areas near the Thai border, Baht can be used directly. Credit cards are usually accepted in top-range hotels or big shops only and you may charge a fee on top of the price. In almost local restaurants, bars, towns, villages or rural regions, it’s better to use local money.

Which are the best airlines to book in Laos?

Laos Airlines is the national airline in this country while Laos Skyway operates flights and scheduled that are not served by Laos Airlines. Airlines in Laos was known to be unsafe in the past due to substandard facilities and service. Nowadays, they have made an effort to improve their reputation positively. One note, their international flights often codeshare with neighbours, usually Vietnam Airlines. Thus for flights to and from Laos, it’s better to use other brands. For domestic flights, Laos brands might be the most advisable option.
