A superbly varied holiday that uses an overnight Mekong River cruise to combine 2 very different parts of Thailand with a comprehensive tour of Laos.

After an energetic stay in Bangkok and Chiang Rai it all slows down aboard the Luang Say cruise that meanders downstream through tranquil river scenes to Luang Prabang the spiritual UNESCO World Heritage city. From here the south awaits, again keeping the Mekong close by as your explore the lush forests and dramatic waterfalls of the Bolaven Plateau, the river scenes of the 4,000 Islands and the laid back capital of Vientiane - a world away from our everyday life.
