Laos is the authentic, unspoilt Asia and a must-do for any dedicated gap year traveller. Don't miss its hidden treasures; lazy boat trips down the Mekong River, the mysterious Plain of Jars, the authentic flavour of Luang Prabang or a blissful dip in a heavenly waterfall. A must-do gap year activity is the adrenaline-filled river tubing experience at Vang Vieng! Head well off the beaten track and discover all that Laos has to offer by taking a hop-on-hop-off tour round this scenic country. Try alternative transport by jumping on an elephant, sliding sleepily down the Mekong on a slow boat or tumbling along on a tuk tuk; or try the ultimate mode of transport - the river tube! See Asia as you've never seen it before with a time-travelling trip to the laid-back land of Laos.Laos Key Facts
