Voyages Jules Verne

Discover Laos

The landlocked, ancient kingdom of Lan Xang has remained a well-kept secret, free of tourist traps and enabling it to retain its unique appeal and personality. Come with us on a very personal journey and discover temples, parks and a welcoming, peaceful people.

Laos is an incredibly beautiful and intriguing country well worth exploring. This Southeast Asian nation is known for its mountainous terrain, French colonial architecture, hill tribe settlements and Buddhist monasteries. Attractions include the jungle-covered landscape littered with awe-inspiring temples and the colourful markets of UNESCO World Heritage-listed Luang Prabang, one of Asia’s most serene cities.

Tagbat is the highlight of any Laos tour. Rise early to watch 2,000 monks walking through the streets of the old royal capital in a ceremony embraced by the local people, who turn out daily to give alms to the monks.

Away from the cities and off the beaten track, you’ll find yourself in unspoilt tropical forest breathing in a landscape of jagged limestone cliffs, magnificent jungle and the snaking Mekong River, which is also your path to the impressive Khmer empire temples of Wat Phou.
