Inside Vietnam: Cambodia Laos
Laos' riverside resorts

Laos' riverside resorts

It may be a long way from the sea, but we challenge you to find a more relaxing spot than the Mekong River's inland archipelago: the 4,000 Islands.

Sitting with a cocktail in hand, watching the sun set slowly over the mighty Mekong River is a match for any beach destination.

The 4,000 Islands, or Si Phan Don in the local tongue, is where the Mekong River widens to its broadest stretch - encompassing hundreds of leafy islands and islets. Here, Laos demonstrates that you don't need to be the sea to enjoy a laid-back, beach-like atmosphere, beautiful tropical weather and total relaxation.

Tucked away on some of the larger islands there are some fantastic riverside resorts, from classic colonial heritage at La Folie to beautiful modern style at the River Resort. Further north in Luang Prabang, a selection of beautiful riverside resorts will persuade you to linger for an extra couple of days in Laos' capital of culture and heritage.
