10D/09N - ESSENTIAL VIETNAM AND LAOS
10D/09N - Essential Vietnam and Laos
Unforgettable: Forget what the authorities tell you, goes the joke. Laos PDR doesn't stand for the People's Democratic Republic. Instead, so laid-back is this lush landlocked nation, PDR actually means Please Don't Rush. Laos will undoubtedly give you one the more relaxed and tranquil holidays of your life. But that doesn't mean the hard-working Luxury Travel staff take it easy. Far from it. As part of a long-established, highly experienced and brilliantly connected regional team, they're on call 24 hours a day, pulling out the stops to perfect your journey. This trip will combine Vietnam with Laos awaiting for your discovery
