This small-group tour gets off the major tourist paths in going to both North-Eastern Thailand and Southern Laos. While all our tours show you at least some of the real local culture this 15-day adventure is a full-on real travel experience.
This is about as Thai & Laos as it gets. Try some fried insects in Isan for dinner before visiting the World Heritage-listed Wat Phu Champasak in Laos. Along the way see real local life without the tourists in Isan and relax as always with the locals in this less touristy part of laid-back Laos.
Not much English is spoken along the way which means fun and games with your charades as you try to communicate with the even friendlier than usual local Thai and Laotian people. This is a real travel adventure rather than a tourist attractions tour.
While you will see a few tourists in southern Laos these days, very few make it to Isan, the collective name for the nineteen northeastern Thai provinces.
This trip would also be ideal for a second travel tour after one of our other small group tours. Dive even deeper into the local culture. This tour comes under the banner of a foodies tour also. Not every day perhaps like others but with one of the best Thai indoor food eatery markets in Roi Et and a fabulous outdoor one in Mukdahan plus possibly the best overall restaurant in all of Laos in Pakse then foodies eyes may well pop out of their heads at times.

(3-star hotels x 7 nights, 2-star guest houses & hotels x 7 nights.).
If time is limited take a look at our 9 day Isan & Insects itinerary.
Expect a unique travel experience that regular tourists could not even imagine. More local culture and less tourism infrastructure is how to think.
We will use local transport, eat delicious local food and see many things that will make you pinch yourself at times.
Expect some very memorable, albeit slow & uncomfortable at times, yet still, enjoyable bus rides in Laos with the locals. Expect some of the biggest choices of food you have ever seen in Roi Et & Mukdaharn night markets followed by the best beer in the region in Laos.
To sum up; expect the unexpected on this fascinating cultural experience tour. A tour for real travellers.
“We really did go to Thailand & Laos”.
