Family time is important, and the best way to bond with your loved ones is to travel to new destinations and share some adventures with them.

The 5 Days | 4 Nights family programme from Asian Trails Laos explores the ‘other side’ of the ancient city of Luang Prabang. The adventure includes a trek to the Kuangsi waterfall, a visit to the butterfly farm, and bathing the elephants at the elephant sanctuary. Sail down the Mekong River in a traditional boat to the eco Kamu Lodge, and live in a modern safari tent, getting to see first-hand the rural life in Laos.
A highly underestimated destination for families has emerged as a strong contender for blazing family-orientated travel across our Asia. Laos’ Luang Prabang and its surroundings have always been on the forefront of discerned explorers in search for a laid-back region in Indo China.  Here, the amplitude of temples within walking distance, and protected under the regulations of UNESCO’s statutes as World Heritage Site, draws a crowd of admirers of its Please-Do-Not-Rush philosophy. Blessed with a hue of authentic romance along the Mekong River, Luang Prabang continuously  reinvents itself in its own, unique  cool, calm and collected way. The town  has now dug into new grounds to cater to a growing demand for the family market. No need to give your children only pool time.  It is adventure, exploration, and staying overnight at a safari-style resort in the heart of Laos’ lush natural surroundings, all the way from beginning until the end of this 5 days’ family sojourn.


DAY 1: ARRIVAL LUANG PRABANG : [-/-/-] Meet and greet by our local Asian Trails representative at Luang Prabang International Airport and transfer to your booked accommodation in town. The rest of the time is at leisure for your guests to explore the town after check-in at your hotel. Depending on the arrival time, we highly recommend taking a tuk tuk and getting familiar with Luang Prabang’s lay-out, and find yourself looking into the various dining options outside your hotel. No dinner included Overnight at your booked accommodation in Luang Prabang.


AM:  The Kuang Si Falls are a beautiful sight where you can hike, swim or just soak up the beauty of the surrounding area. The waterfall is the biggest in the region with three tiers leading to a 60-metre drop into spectacular azure pools before flowing downstream. It is this natural marvel to which we will point our compass needle  for a great day out. In the morning, we will pick you up from your hotel in Luang Prabang at around 08:00 hrs and drive around 30 kilometres towards the West (the drive will take approximately one hour). We recommend bringing an extra set of clothes and towels with you if you like to splash!
