General manager - Exotissimo Travel Laos
As a former resident of Luang Prabang, I feel the best way to experience the city and the region is by electric bike. That is why I love the Splendors of North Laos Biking Tour.
This tour was designed so you can fully experience the region's amazing scenery, quiet roads and ethnic minorities. The program is also very flexible, allowing you to choose your ride and rest times. A very knowledgeable guide will accompany you as well as help arrange soothing foot and leg massages.
The highlights of tour are definitely the region's quiet roads, beautiful scenery and the numerous hilltribe villages. Later on in the tour, you will relax on a Mekong cruise to your next destination; Luang Prabang. A few days is definitely necessary for you to discover the town's hidden corners not mentioned in any guide books where you will see amazing galleries, observe original houses, taste great food and meet some of the most amazing people ever. A great way to end a memorable trip!
If you are planning on taking this trip, it is best to do a little research on the country's history and its minorities so you have a little understanding of Laos before asking deeper questions.
My next travel destination is to Indonesia, where I am scheduled to go to later this year. It will be fun! However, Myanmar is always in the back of my mind and I have to find a way to get there! Maybe arrange a business meeting there someday.
