Vientiane

  • Excellent- 5.0/5

This is actually a three country expedition as we will traverse Laos to touch Thailand and Burma at the once notorious Golden Triangle. From Vientiane, the old French capital, and so redolent of L’Indochine we will be the first river expedition since pre war days to cross all Laos. We stop two nights at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Luang Prabang with its dazzling wood carved monasteries and then on deep into the mountains, through rapids and gorges on our high powered little Pandaw. We will visit tribal villages and explore into jungle and countryside. As with all Pandaw expeditions itineraries are an indication only and in the first year we anticipate many a change!
