Getting around and travelling Laos is relatively easy. All of our holidays will include a private driver to take you between your destinations, allowing you to sit back and enjoy the journeys. Our drivers are always accompanied by English speaking guides, who can tell you all about the local area and give tremendous insight into the culture and ways of life.
You can travel by train along some routes which is efficient and comfortable. As the train stations are far outside of towns, it can be faster to travel with a private driver between certain destinations. We’ll always recommend the option that makes the most of your holiday – balancing efficiency, value, and the benefit of having a guide so that you can focus on enjoying the holiday and not worry about getting from one place to the next.
As Laos is quite a large country you may find yourself taking flights – often between Vientiane, Luang Prabang and Pakse in the south – or indeed flights onto Cambodia, Vietnam or Thailand if you are visiting Laos alongside another country. We normally include all the costs of your internal flights in the price of the holiday, which are ATOL protected with us.
