For first-timers, 5 days can be enough to take in Laos at a glance. An ideal order should be going from Vientiane to Luang Prabang.
Luang Prabang, nestled at the comfortable confluence of two mighty rivers, Luang Prabang is the northern emerald gem of Laos. Although it is cozy enough for you to navigate its leafy lanes on your own two feet, there is still plenty to see and do. Vientiane, vientiane may be the busiest city in Laos, it is a remarkable blend of French colonial architecture and soaring gilded temples and monasteries.
