Accommodation In Laos
Live amongst the mountains in Luang Prabang
Less visited than other Asian countries, Laos is an easy going destination that remains largely unspoilt. Tradition and friendly hospitality exists in abundance, and hiking and active adventures are popular through the mountainous north. Zip line through the forests on The Gibbon Experience or discover the history of the Vieng Xai Caves.
Luang Prabang not only offers the beauty of many ornate temples and French Provincial architecture, but it's also the perfect place to stay while exploring northern Laos. Accommodation is mostly made up of 5-star independent hotels and boutiques. The Lao Spirit Resort offers sensational views over the surrounding mountains, while the Apsara is excellent value for money.
Celebrate Lao culture in the capital of Vientaine
Central Laos is home to the sleepy capital city of Vientiane, the best place for immersing yourself in the country's history and culture. Beyond the capital, there is plenty to experience through the central region including the popular backpacker destination of Vang Vieng and the city of Phonsavan, which provides passage to the mysterious Plain of Jars.
Many of central Laos' major cities provide a great selection of hotels. This is especially true of Vientaine, which boasts a number of 4- and 5-star hotels. You may want to try one of the many beautiful boutiques, or opt for the comfort and quality of such international chains as the Best Western or Mercure.
Journey the road less travelled through Southern Laos
The mighty waters of the Mekong River spread out over the southern region of Laos, creating a visual feast of natural beauty across the cities and fishing villages. Although more remote than the central region, the south still offers plenty to see and do. The Bolaven Plateau is a popular stopover for scenic waterfalls and coffee plantations, while Si Phan Don boasts the 'four thousand islands'.
Pakse is known as the gateway to the southern region and provides the perfect spot to set up, offering the most diverse selection of accommodation in the area. You can find a number of quality hotels and charming boutiques including the Pakse Hotel and the Champasak Palace Hotel.
