Browse Our Custom Private Laos Tours

Often overlooked but always making a lasting impression, Laos shows us a more laid-back, mellow Southeast Asia. At dawn, hundreds of alms-seeking monks brighten the streets of Luang Prabang with their impeccable orange robes. Outside the cities, farmers walk in sync with water buffalo through sparkling rice paddies, against a backdrop of misty sandstone cliffs, wispy Buddhist temples, and wild jungle landscapes. No doubt, more than the spectacular waterfalls, rivers, and caves, it’s the famously patient and gracefully unpunctual Laotians that will transform your experience. Backyard Travel offers tailor-made Laos private tours for travelers of all kinds. From relaxing luxury escapes and river cave expeditions, to jungle hiking adventures and cultural and culinary explorations — whatever your passions, our Laos travel agency can design a bespoke Laos holiday just for you.

What’s Special about Laos?

While the country may seem small on a map, the cultural and natural diversity of Laos could fill continents. Roam the French colonial streets of Vientiane, and let the Mekong lull you to daydreams. In between, take in the Lao way of life — a slow walk on a sunny afternoon by the river.

CHARACTER

Respect and patience are virtues in Laotian culture. The country’s easygoing people give their time freely and expect the same in return. Laotians are a frank, open, and polite people — often considered the most friendly and welcoming locals of Asia.

CLIMATE

While a bit chilly in the mountains, the months between November and March are arguably the best time for a visit, with mild temperatures and few downpours. Spring and early summer can be scorching, while the wet season runs from July to October.

ENTERTAINMENT

Bars and nightlife options, albeit somewhat limited, are concentrated in the tourist centers. For traditional entertainment, head to the Royal Theater in Luang Prabang and the National Opera Theater in Vientiane.

CULTURE

Laotian culture varies considerably across the ethnic groups of the country. Theravada Buddhism is practiced throughout the nation, with heavy influence in art, architecture, and daily life. Several regional customs, however, predate the introduction of Buddhism.

LANGUAGE

Lao is the official language of Laos but is spoken by only slightly more than half of the population. Especially in the countryside, you’ll often hear minority languages such as Khmu and Hmong. Road signs are written in Lao and French.

HISTORY

Founded as an independent kingdom in the 14th century, Laos was colonized by France in 1893. Laos gained its independence after WWII and suffered a series of ethnic conflicts and communist-bloc intrigues from which the nation is still recovering.
