Traditional stereotypes of busy Asian cities don’t tend to apply to Vientiane. In general, the vibe in the sleepy capital of Laos is in keeping with the generally relaxed atmosphere of the country itself. This journey puts the spotlight on some of the most charming aspects of the city flitting from serene temples such as Wat Sisaket and Wat Phra Keo to lazy evening promenades along the banks of the Mekong River. The journey also includes an excursion outside the city to an orchid farm where guests can learn more about the effort being made to protect these fragile and beautiful flowers. Nature also takes centre-stage in an intriguing trek into wild countryside where a profusion of wild orchids bloom and where spectacular waterfalls pour into deep pools, perfect for al fresco bathing.
