It was nice only having 6 people over the most of the tour as we all bonded together really well and will probably be life long friends

I will and have highly recommended this trip -especially Lao and the boat ride down the river. I joined the tour in Chaing Mai, stayed overnight then onto Lao.

We reckon Laos is one of South East Asia’s best. It’s just a little more chilled than its neighbours.
The pace is slower and the old Mekong even flows a little more languidly. From the day-long markets and dusty riverside paths of sleepy Vientane, to the rad scenery around activity-friendly Vang Vieng, and the minxy beauty of Heritage Listed Luang Prabang. Laos will leave you a little bit weak at the knees.
And because we love it so much, we’ll make sure you see all of the best bits, eat all of the best foods, and meet all of the best peeps.
Your smile may even end up as wide as the awesome locals (who will soon be your new bff's for life).

If your ideal getaway involves a jungle tree house a la Tarzan and Jane and snuggling up beside a young Leo Di Caprio on deserted beaches, then hop on over to South East Asia, stat.
Whether you wanna get your Indian Jones on at ancient Angkor Wat, climb the epic Mount Kinabalu or drift across Burma’s Inle Lake, this magical region is packed to the brim with the best of the tropics.
So jump on a Geckos South East Asia tour and swim beneath waterfalls in Laos, crawl through Viet Cong tunnels, hang out at Halong Bay, surf perfect Balinese waves, gorge on tom yum in Thailand, and let the friendly folk, food and fun fill you up with the good holiday vibes.View all South East Asia trips
