On this captivating four-week tour you will travel the length of Laos in-depth, as well as cross over to Cambodia to experience the temples of Angkor and the stunning coastline of Koh Rong island. Take a boat cruise along the Mekong, stopping at Laos' rural villages and natural beauty spots. Spend a few days sampling the glistening temples and French pastries of Luang Prabang, while immersing yourself in the city's vibrant community organisations and local stalls. Next on to the mysterious Plain of Jars, followed by gloriously scenic Vang Vieng and historic capital, Vientiane. Continue down the country doing a loop of Thakhek, exploring caves and villages before slowing down at sleepy Don Det in the south. From here, take a flight to Siem Reap in Cambodia to witness the wonders of Angkor, including the life-affirming sight of Angkor Wat. Travel south again to coastal Sihanoukville and onto Koh Rong to finish off these four weeks in serene, Cambodian island style.
