Known as the 'Land of A Million Elephants', Laos is one of the countries the least touched by modern civilization in South East Easia. With few transport infrastructures, the country's main communications network revolves around the Mekong River. As a result, more than half of the inhabitants from the different ethnic groups live along the Mekong and its tributaries and most are subsistence farmers. The country is ideal for those groups seeking culture, untouched nature and adventure.

Laos has a variety of accommodation ranging from boutique hotels, resorts, eco-lodge to luxury cruises. Within each type, the guests can enjoy different range of services depending on their preferences, from city resort to eco-friendly mountain resorts or from colonial style boutique hotel to internationally designed city hotel.
From the mountains region of the North up to the South of the country and the 4,000 islands bespoke incentive trips can be designed. In outstanding landscapes, activities such as trekking, zip-lining, biking, climbing, traditional massage, rafting, team games, as well as many others can be organized. For something a bit different from visiting historical monuments, enjoy being a guest during a private Baci ceremony, enjoying a meal with monks or bathing in waterfalls.
