Top things to do

In the hidden gem landlocked country of Southeast Asia, Laos, the best thing to do is combine the discovery of the natural landscapes and diverse cultures that come from the 49 ethnic groups that influence the food, arts, customs, festivals, and ancient attractions, as well as several UNESCO World Heritage sites. 

From exploring the historic Luang Prabang city, immerse yourself in the calm waters of Kuang Si waterfall, admire the sacred Buddha statues in Pak Ou caves and typical ancient Khmer temples to the mystical Plain of Jars, the rustic life in craft villages along the Mekong River. All bring you the feeling of "back in time" in the amazement of this beautiful land.


There are many vehicles for tourists to move within Laos. Buses, planes, and trains are the most recommended for long-distance trips. Traveling shorter distances can experience tuk-tuk, minivan, jumbo, skylab, and motorbike. Here is a helpful brief of transportation info to choose the right one for your journey.

 Domestic flights 

Best moving choice if you only have 01-week or less to travel to Laos


Laos launched a railway system called Laos High-speed Rail (Laos HSR). Currently, it only covers the northern part of the country, so you can quickly reach Luang Prabang, Vang Vieng, and Vientiane via train. There is no official booking site for Laos HRS. You can buy tickets at train stations or travel agents in Laos.


  • The bus is the most budget-friendly way to get around in Laos. There are many types of buses, such as local buses, tour buses, and sleeper buses, to meet short or long-distance needs.
  • Minivan: Faster than a bus because it has fewer stops along the route. However, it has limited space, and foreign visitors may feel cramped for their height.

 Taxi/ Private Transfer/ Motorbike

  • Easy to catch a taxi in bigger cities or towns. However, Laos has no meters in taxis, so you'll need to negotiate the rate you pay.
  • Private transfer is roomier and newer than Taxis on short-distance trips. You can book through travel agents in Laos or an app in Laos. 
  • Motorbike is the fastest way to get around when having traffic jams. This service has no app; you can easily find it everywhere. Just agree on the price and use it for the day only.

 Rental cars 

It is a costly option, around $ US40 - $US80 depending on the size and type. Suitable for travelers with an international driver's license and a valid driver's license in their country who wish to make a private trip. 

 Tuk-Tuk/ Jumbos/ Skylabs

The best local sightseeing experience with fares is usually from 17,000 LAK to 70,000 LAK, based on distance and the number of people. Please remember to agree on a price with the driver before you start your journey.


A more local version of the bus in Laos is more common in the countryside than in the city. It is often parked at bus stops or local markets that take you to various routes with heavy luggage.

 Mekong River Boat Trip 

A relaxing and creative way to explore Laos on a cruise 

Grab or Uber is not unavailable in Laos. However, a local version, Loca, allows you to book private taxis and private cars in big cities such as Vientiane, Luang Prabang, Pakse, Vang Vieng, and Savannakhet for payment by cash or bank card.

Weather & Best time to go

The climate in Laos divides into mainly dry and wet seasons 

  • Wet season (May - October): Rain covers the whole country, making it difficult for tourists to travel quickly to tourist attractions in Laos, especially the mountainous areas, with average temperatures around 29°C in the lowlands and 23°C in the mountain valleys
  • Dry season (October - late April): It has two distinct sections: the cool, dry season and then the hot, dry season - the former being one of the most popular times to visit Laos, the latter less. The cool, dry season is a great time to go due to relatively low temperatures, the air is fresher, especially in November and December, and the river levels are high enough for the breeze river journey.

For a perfect climate, the best time to visit Laos is from November to May, when travelers can enjoy various activities outside due to dry weather and pleasant temperature.

There is no wrong time to travel to Laos since each season possesses its own typical beauty, however, if you cannot come to the country during the ideal period above, please notice the following durations’ drawbacks:

  • July - August: Belongs to the peak of monsoon season, your trip may be disrupted by unavailable transfers due to bad weather, which also influences your travel experiences. If you prefer a smooth journey, it’s recommended to avoid these months.
  • April - May: Witnessing the highest temperature in the hot season (~40°C), traveling during this time will be an uncomfortable experience for many tourists, especially visitors from cold countries.
  • September - October: Though there are heavy rains with high humidity in September, the next month is more enjoyable with fewer downpours, fresh air, and lush scenery after the rains. The best time to beat the crowds.

Normally, the travel cost for a Lao package is a bit higher than in other Southeast Asia countries, at around US $110 - 350 /person /day.

Depending on your budget, the actual expenditure will vary since each class is priced differently. Let’s see our rough estimation below (travel cost per person /day):

  • Economy (2*): For budget travelers - US $120 - 150
  • Superior (3*): For mid-range travelers - US $160 - 200
  • First Class (4* hotels): For luxury travelers - US $250 ++

A Laos tour package can range from 6 - 15 days. Based on your availability, a short trip will allow you to explore the country’s highlights, while the longer one enables you to take a deeper glance at nature and local lifestyle:

  • 5 - 7 days: Witness the most outstanding landmarks in Laos, usually in Luang Prabang and the capital Vientiane
  • 8 - 10 days: Expand to off-the-beaten-track exploration (such as Pakse and Nong Khiaw) besides the main cities.
  • Over 12 days: Have a thorough knowledge of Laos through adventures from the cities to secluded areas and untouched nature.

Generally, Laos people are welcoming and nice. However, there are things you shouldn’t do since it will be considered disrespectful:

  • Don't touch a monk (women especially need to be careful). Since Buddhism is the main religion in Laos, you shouldn’t touch the Buddha images /statues too.
  • Don't trek without a guide: Increase caution in some rural areas, such as Savannakhet, Xieng Khouang, Saravane, Khammouane, Sekong, etc., due to unexploded bombs. It’s safe to have a guide who knows about the routes.
  • Don't argue with the police: It’s not wise to have a conflict with the police, you should comply with the rules. Since corruption is a problem in Laos, sometimes they only want to get money from foreign tourists, all you should do is just pay the bribe.
  • Don't touch anyone with your feet: This is supposed to be rudeness.
  • Don't wear your shoes inside a home or temple: This rule also applies to some restaurants, shops, and hotels.
  • Don't shout, argue or rush: Like the Thai people, Laos people don’t want to lose face. The best thing to do is smile, or else you won’t achieve anything.
  • Don't make public displays of affection: Or you will receive frowns and disagreeing glances from locals.
  • Don't buy antiques or wildlife products: as well as use marijuana and opium, as drugs are illegal in the country.

Famous for hill tribes, waterfalls, and tea plantations, you should not miss visiting Pakse when traveling to Laos, as you can explore many parts of the country, from nature to local life.

Overall, Laos is relatively safe for foreigners to travel. The country is one of the safest tourist destinations in Asia:

  • Political Status: As an authoritarian centralized one-party state, the politics in Laos is quite stable.
  • Crime Rate: Though violent crimes towards foreigners aren’t high, petty crimes like opportunistic thefts are quite popular in tourist areas. The solution for that is simple - always be aware of your surroundings.
