Backyard Travel: Laos Holiday Specialists


It’s sometimes said that the ‘P.D.R.’ in the country’s official name ‘Laos P.D.R.’ actually stands for ‘People Don’t Rush’. Although it’s a tongue-in-cheek saying, in fact it’s somewhat true - nothing really rushes in this laid-back land and most visitors and residents wouldn’t have it any other way. A charming, compact country, home to only six million inhabitants; Laos is an increasingly popular travel destination and a place that shouldn’t be overlooked.


With a team of expert locals based on-the-ground in Vientiane, Backyard Travel’s Laos Travel Specialists provide fascinating insights into this veritable wonderland with tailor-made Laos tours crammed full of unique insider experiences. With Backyard Travel you won’t just scratch the surface; you’ll feel like you’ve lived every moment.


The two main cities of Laos, Vientiane and Luang Prabang, receive most of the visitors each year, but there are many delightful places to discover that often go unseen including Pakse, which you can experience on our Pakse and Beyond tour in the south of Laos and the magical Luang Nam Tha in the north. Our Laos-based Tour Specialists will use their unrivalled local knowledge to tailor a travel itinerary which is perfect for you and your family.


Take a Luang Prabang tour and experience the rich historical temples and colonial architecture that lines the Mekong River, exploring in an eco-friendly way by electric bicycle. The In Love With Luang Prabang tour offers this and more, including a guided private visit to the Pak Ou Caves and the majestic Kuang Si Waterfalls.


Our on-the-ground Travel Specialists will give you the best advice on where in Laos is perfect for you to visit and when. We’re certain you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for with help from our unmatched experience and expert knowledge you can only get from being a local.
