Laos

Luxury Yacht Charter Destination

Whilst Laos might not be the first place you associate with superyachts and sailing due to its landlocked nature, it shares five international borders and provides a host of unforgettable experiences as part of a multi-country Asian itinerary.

Laos has a tropical climate, with year-round high temperatures and two distinct seasons. The wet season runs from May to October, whilst the optimum time to visit is between November and March when temperatures sit around 30 degrees Celsius.

A tour of Laos promises an enchanting blend of opulence, cultural richness, and serene landscapes. From the ancient city of Luang Prabang to the capital, Vientiane, and the picturesque Vang Vieng, a land of unique and indulgent opportunities awaits you. With the vast Mekong River running through the country, it is often easy to forget that you are not meandering along a seafront. From dark and brooding jungles, glowing emerald rice fields and mountains carpeted in glistening tea leaves, the landscape in Laos is swathed in every shade of green. Laos is leading the pack in Southeast Asia with its green credentials in ecotourism, too. Protected areas blanket the landscape in many of the more remote parts of the country and community-based trekking initiatives offer the opportunity to visit these spectacular natural attractions and immerse yourself in the ‘real’ Laos. 

For those seeking adrenaline fueled thrills, there is much on offer above and below the water. Dive into underground river caves, kayak along the Mekong or climb one of the vast jungle karsts before zip lining back down to Terra Firma. Nature enthusiasts can take a walk on the wild side in search of exotic gibbons and majestic elephants, whilst those looking to delve into the culture and traditions of Laos can explore ancient temples and museums. If you are seeking to simply relax and unwind, Laos has many fabulous spas with traditional treatments sure to leave you rejuvenated for the next adventure. 

The peaceful city of Luang Prabang is a UNESCO world heritage site where luxury and authenticity sit side by side. Be sure to take in the breathtaking sunset at Phousi Hill, followed by dinner at the acclaimed Manda de Laos, where exquisite local ingredients are transformed into culinary masterpieces. For a truly ethereal start to your day, join the daily almsgiving ceremony where locals offer food to monks before a visit to the Royal Palace and majestic Wat Xieng Thong. Be sure to make time to wander through the local markets soaking up the sensory explosions all around you with vendors selling everything from handmade silk scarves to vibrant spices and, of course, the famous local whisky. An evening cruise along the Mekong River with a local cocktail, whilst the sun sets will be sure to end your day in spectacular fashion. 

The capital city of Vientiane offers a wealth of colonial architecture, displayed in magnificent hotels such as the Settha Palace, boasting grandeur and top-notch service. A visit to Wat Sisaket and the iconic Pha That Luang, a golden stupa symbolising Lao sovereignty, should be high on your list. A private tour of the Buddha Park also comes highly recommended before wrapping up your day at one of the city’s many wonderful rooftop bars. 

The captivating town of Vang Vieng is surrounded by limestone karst formations. Here you can explore the mystical Tham Chang Cave and unwind by the Nam Song River. For a different perspective on the landscape, an early morning hot air balloon ride provides a bird’s-eye view of the lush countryside, making for an unforgettable conclusion to your Laos journey.

Laotian luxury is easy to find but this incredible country is also about curated experiences that allow you to connect with the region’s rich and enchanting tapestry. Whether savouring a gastronomic feast by the Mekong or exploring the many historical wonders, a vacation in this intoxicating country promises to leave you with memories to last a lifetime.
