The capital of Vientiane is a small place. Nevertheless, travelling through the neighborhoods where colonial and modern architecture meet is a terrific way to observe the area. It’s a wonderful location for a river walk at sunrise or dusk because the Mekong runs through it. Your family can go to the Lao National Museum, the Pha That Luang Stupa, Ho Phra Kaew, and other well-known and revered temples, as well as the Patuxai Victory Monument, one of the city’s most recognisable landmarks.

Venture into the caves of Vang Vieng

Halfway between Vientiane and Luang Prabang, Vang Vieng is renowned for its breathtaking karst limestone scenery and huge cave networks. Even while Kong Lor cave isn’t the largest complex, the “secret Eden,” a pool that can only be reached by boating through one cave into another, is quite near to perfection. Play a bunch of animated swimming!

Visit a community of a hill tribe.

Laos’ hill tribe settlements are worth visiting even though the trekking trails can be difficult for young children. Off the usual path, you will come across friendly locals who are happy to interact with you and your family. When a language barrier exists, children are the best icebreakers. Your entire family can enjoy an overnight stay at one of the homestays.

In a waterfall pool, relax.

The Kuang Si waterfall, located about 20 miles south of Luang Prabang, is one of the most well-known in the nation. You can go on a hike to witness breathtaking vistas or cool off in the pools. Additionally, there is a bear rescue facility nearby where you can see some local creatures being saved and rehabilitated. Tad Sae is a neighboring waterfall that can only be reached by boat, making the trip more exciting.

Discover Wat Phou

Wat Phou, Champasak served as the royal residence up until 1946. Given that the temples are now in ruins and the town is so quiet that you will only be sharing it with a few automobiles and possibly some hens, this may be difficult to believe. But these ruins are great to explore for little ones and history buffs. Your children will adore them because they can climb over them without being bothered by other tourists.
