Develop a deep connection with Laos, seeing historical highlights and cultural wonders but with a distinctly foodie twist. Read more >

With its world-renowned foodie neighbours of Thailand, Vietnam and China, Laos and Laotian cuisine is surprisingly little-known outside of this fascinating land-locked country. With influences from the region but with a distinctively unique take on its food, explore and uncover its secrets on a culinary discovery through this ancient land.

Arriving into Vientiane; perhaps the sleepiest capital city in the whole of Asia, settle into the slow pace of Laotian life and delve right into its foodie heart, taking in evening food markets by tuk tuk, joining in with locals in a Sin Dat (Lao-style barbeque) dinner and exploring the city's highlights with a foodie twist, dining at local hard-to-find local restaurants along the way.

A short flight southwards brings you to the coffee growing heart of the country on the Bolaven Plateau. Traversing this stunningly beautiful and isolated region by vintage jeep, stay overnight at a local coffee plantation homestay before heading to the idyllic 4000 islands region. Island-hop the rural countryside by bicycle, stop for a freshly caught seafood lunch at a local home and pay a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage temple of Wat Phou.

Journey back northwards to the jewel in Laos' crown; Luang Prabang. Here, whilst exploring the town's ancient streets and temples, dine at both Laotian and French restaurants, sample organic offerings amongst botanical gardens, take a hands-on farming experience and uncover the secrets of Laotian cuisine with a cooking class. Wrapping up the culinary adventure, end with a proverbial foodie bang with Laos' first and only Michelin Star restaurant experience.
