10 Días De Lazy Laos Adventure

Con un poco de todo para la naturaleza, la cultura y los amantes de la aventura por igual, este diamante soñoliento en bruto seguramente complacerá incluso al mochilero más exigente. Viaja a Laos ahora mientras todavía es una de las gemas menos conocidas del sureste de Asia.

Laos es un poco más relajado que algunos de sus vecinos. La vida se desarrolla a un ritmo muy relajado aquí, y para los viajeros como nosotros, puede ser un descanso muy agradable del ritmo a menudo agitado del sudeste asiático. Aquí no hay rascacielos, centros comerciales, cines o autopistas, pero está bien. En cambio, Laos ofrece una naturaleza asombrosa, experiencias culturales auténticas y un ambiente relajado que no se puede igualar. Aquí puede caminar a través de algunos de los bosques tropicales más biodiversos del mundo, detenerse a darse un chapuzón en algunas de las cascadas más espectaculares y piscinas de agua dulce que jamás verá. Visita los exquisitos templos dorados con techo y atestigua que los monjes aceptan sus ofrendas diarias al amanecer durante la ceremonia de la limosna. Haga un viaje en barco por el Mekong a impresionantes cuevas que contienen reliquias antiguas. Súbete a columpios de cuerda y tirolinas en lagunas de aguas cristalinas, o vuélvete un poco mojado y salvaje con otros mochileros de todo el mundo mientras conduces por el río Nam Song, rodeado por algunos de los paisajes naturales más impresionantes del país. Laos es tan salvaje y tan auténtico como se pone. Con un poco de todo para la naturaleza, la cultura y los amantes de la aventura por igual, este diamante soñoliento en bruto seguramente complacerá incluso al mochilero más exigente. Viaja a Laos ahora mientras todavía es una de las gemas menos conocidas del sureste de Asia.

- Qué harás

Llegas a Bangkok tarde la primera noche. El grupo se reúne para recibir bebidas de bienvenida y una breve sesión de información en nuestra casa de huéspedes. Si lo desea, nos dirigimos a Khao San Road, donde puede obtener una auténtica comida tailandesa y tomar una bebida fría después de un largo día de viaje. Si desea obtener realmente "Lejos", puede agarrar un "balde", o pruebe uno de los "manjares" de carros de la calle, como larvas de insectos fritos y grillos. Este es también un buen lugar para obtener los suministros de última hora que haya olvidado en su hogar. Nuestro segundo día en Bangkok es un gran día para visitar un par de mercados, disfrutar de algunas de las mejores oportunidades de compras en la ciudad o realizar una excursión de un día a una de las muchas atracciones turísticas de la ciudad. Por la tarde, tomaremos un minibús privado a la estación de tren, donde tomaremos el tren nocturno hacia la frontera de Laos, una experiencia que no puede perderse.

Nuestro tren llega temprano en la mañana Día 3 en Nong Khai, Tailandia. Después de cruzar el "puente de la amistad" en Laos y obtener nuestras visas, nos subimos a un minibús privado para el viaje hacia el norte a Vang Vieng. Después de un largo viaje desde Tailandia, el grupo se reúne para una deliciosa comida tradicional de Laos en nuestra casa de huéspedes, antes de salir a pasar la noche en la ciudad. Día 4, el grupo llega al río Nam Song para disfrutar de un día de tubos de río lento, mientras disfruta de las alucinantes vistas de los acantilados circundantes, y se detiene en los increíbles bares que salpican el río. Los días 5 y 6 son suyos para visitar las impresionantes cuevas, lagunas, templos, kayak, ciclismo de montaña, etc. Vang Vieng es un hermoso lugar con infinitas oportunidades para la aventura.

La mañana del día 7 abordaremos nuestro minibús privado y nos dirigiremos hacia el norte para disfrutar de un paseo increíblemente pintoresco hasta nuestra última parada en Laos, Luang Prabang. Luego de llegar a nuestra casa de huéspedes, el grupo se familiarizará con una caminata hasta el área del centro / orilla del río. Aquí puede disfrutar de una auténtica cena de Laos y contemplar la increíble puesta de sol en las orillas del poderoso Mekong, ir a tomar un crucero "de licores" al atardecer o visitar el mercado nocturno (uno de nuestros favoritos en Asia) para abastecerse de recuerdos y recuerdos . El día 8 el grupo se dirige a las cascadas de Kuang Si para un día increíblemente divertido de excursión a través de la exuberante selva tropical a algunas de las cascadas más bellas del sudeste asiático. Para el último día en Laos, puedes pasar la mañana en la ceremonia de limosnas al amanecer viendo las filas de monjes budistas con sus túnicas anaranjadas, recogiendo sus alimentos para el día. Por la tarde, visite algunos de los muchos templos techados de oro, haga una excursión por el río a algunas de las muchas cuevas de la zona, o visite otras cascadas de clase mundial.

En lugar de tomar el tren nocturno de vuelta a Bangkok, reducimos el tiempo de viaje y abordamos un avión desde Luang Prabang de regreso a Tailandia para la última noche de nuestra aventura Far Out. Nuestros anfitriones en Bangkok tienen una celebración especial de despedida planificada para nosotros. Despídase de los nuevos amigos increíbles que ha creado en los últimos 10 días y prepárese para su próximo viaje a casa.

- Que esperar

Vang Vieng - Vang Vieng no ha estado mucho tiempo en el mapa del viaje, pero hizo un aterrizaje forzoso cuando un genio decidió saltar en una cámara y flotar río abajo en algún momento alrededor de 1999. Desde entonces, los mochileros se han congregado en Vang Vieng para un flotador por el Nam Sok, saltando de bar en bar a lo largo de la orilla del río, y disfrutando de un juego de cerveza pong o copa mientras contempla las maravillosas formaciones rocosas y los impresionantes acantilados de piedra caliza que rodean la zona. La carroza de regreso a la ciudad es una maravilla, así que querrás agarrar una de las bolsas de cámara a prueba de agua disponibles en toda la ciudad.

Aunque la ciudad en sí misma puede ser pequeña, es grande en diversión y belleza natural. Vang Vieng es también el hogar de numerosas cuevas, templos y lagunas que se encuentran a poca distancia. Debido a la abundancia de actividades disponibles, la ciudad puede sentir bastante sueño durante el día, pero las cosas realmente cobran vida en la noche cuando los mochileros regresan de sus viajes de un día. Seguro de complacer a los amantes de la naturaleza, aventureros y noctámbulos, Vang Vieng ofrece un escenario salvaje y dramático y una escena de fiesta igualmente salvaje.

Luang Prabang: en medio de un bosque vibrante y un paisaje accidentado de montaña, la soñolienta ciudad de Luang Prabang descansa al pie del monte. Phousi donde se encuentran los poderosos ríos Mekong y Nam Song. Conocido por ser el hogar de algunos de los templos más bellos y cascadas increíbles en el sudeste asiático, ninguna aventura de Laos está completa sin un viaje a Luang Prabang. Una encantadora mezcla de templos techados dorados, estructuras de madera tradicionales de Laos y arquitectura colonial de estilo francés, esta impresionante ciudad de montaña tiene un encanto diferente a cualquier otro lugar en el sudeste asiático.

Sea testigo de largas colas de monjes recolectando su comida para el día durante la ceremonia de limosna al amanecer. Salga a caminar por la jungla a las impresionantes cataratas de Kuang Si, consideradas algunas de las más impresionantes de toda Asia, o camine por los exuberantes senderos de las selvas tropicales hacia las hermosas cascadas de Tad Sae, observando monos y otras especies de la selva la manera. Sube a la colina Phou Si y para ver los increíbles templos budistas y los monumentos dorados que salpican los senderos que conducen a la cima. Por la noche, puede cenar en un restaurante junto al río y disfrutar de la increíble puesta de sol en el Mekong, luego dirigirse al mercado nocturno de Luang Prabang, uno de nuestros favoritos en Asia, para intercambiar regalos y recuerdos. Un toque de queda a las 11pm para las empresas en la ciudad ha impedido el establecimiento de gran parte de la vida nocturna, sin embargo estas reglas no se aplican a la bolera localizada a las afueras de la ciudad, que como tal sirve como el club nocturno de Luang Prabang. No es el ambiente estándar de un club nocturno con bolos de 10 pines y un campo de tiro con arco nocturno, sin embargo, es un lugar súper divertido para pasar la noche con sus amigos y conocer a otros viajeros.

- FAQ

Why should I travel with Far Out Adventures?
We have designed a group backpacking trip that offers you the freedom and options to choose and experience your adventure exactly the way you would like to. We are a network of travellers who have been all over SE Asia for the last 9 years, so we have a lot of experience in the places we travel to. We know everything you need to know to help you design the experience of a lifetime.
What kind of overall experience will I have on my Far Out Adventure?
We don’t like to blown our own horn too often, but it is not unreasonable when you travel with Far Out Adventures, to expect to have an amazing journey full of life changing experiences with amazing people in some of the most beautiful places on earth!! Each and every one of our adventures is designed to immerse you in the beauty, culture and history of our locations, while providing you access to all the best activities and amenities, along with the freedom to choose what you want to do. That way you get the most out of your trip and you get to spend your time doing the things that interest you most. Our travel concept is not to sell you a package where we have decided how the group will spend their time, but to help you design the best experience for you. At Far Out Adventures we feel like this is your trip, and our job is to make life easy on by making sure that your only concern on this trip is how much fun you are going to have today. Our trips are light on itinerary and heavy on choice. Our trip leaders are also very knowledgeable and experienced in the areas we travel to, so no matter what you have on your list that needs accomplishing, we will have the time and expertise to help you do and see anything you have your mind set on. Even if there is a location somewhere not included on our itinerary that you want to take a couple days to explore on your own, our trip leaders will be able to help you plan any such side getaways and get you back to the group safely and easily to enjoy the rest of your journey. And as for the people you will be travelling with, your group will be made up mostly of like-minded folks who are all out here for more or less the same reason you are; to experience something beautiful, new and exciting and to expand and broaden our world perspectives. One of the best things about travelling with a group of fun loving like minded people is that in a matter of days you will find yourself making a number of new friendships that will last a lifetime. In short, travelling with Far Out Adventures is an amazingly exciting, dynamic, and worry-free travel experience that is every bit a personal journey custom tailored to your needs as it is a group experience. We take you to some of the best places on earth, with some of the most amazing people you’ll ever meet and give you the freedom to enjoy your trip doing the things you enjoy doing.
Will I get to experience other cultures?
In our opinion, and in our own experience, immersing yourself in new cultures is one of the most rewarding parts of travelling, so on our trips we give you plenty of opportunity to do just that. Whether you’re learning about a country’s history as we explore ancient temples, eating authentic local food, hanging with the locals in some of their favorite spots, or learning some of the local language, the opportunities to have authentic and meaningful interactions with local people and cultures is plentiful on our adventures.
Is this going to be a party trip?
Our trips are not designed to be party trips per se. Our focus is and always has been sharing our favorite travel destinations with others and helping you have the trip of a lifetime, whatever that entails for you. That being said, when people get together in beautiful sunny destinations with a shared interest in beautiful places and awesome times, it’s inevitable that some partying is going to happen. That being said, our destinations have LOTS to offer for the night owl AND the day adventurer alike. If partying isn’t your thing you will never be at a loss for ways to have an amazing time. One of the great things about travelling in a group is that there are always people doing different things, so however you prefer to spend your time and socialize there will be plenty of opportunities to do so with like minded people. We do occasionally plan parties for the group in certain destinations, but needless to say drinking is always optional and not necessary to have a great time. If partying is a concern of yours, we assure you there is no reason to worry. There will be lots of ways to fill your days with fun, and our trip leaders always put just as much emphasis on enjoying the surrounding environment and taking in the local history and culture, as they do on anything else.
I see there is a lot of free time. How much do additional activities cost?
We don’t load your daily itinerary with included activities essentially because we don’t want you paying for activities that you may have no interest in doing. That’s not to say that you will have nothing to do most of the time, because there will be loads of options available to you. We just want to make sure you have the best time possible, doing only the kinds of things you want to do. That’s why we only include 1 awesome activity in each place we go. We pick the one big thing that basically everybody wants to see/do in each place we go to, so we can be reasonably certain that everybody will be able to participate and enjoy it. In terms of your overall budget, we can give you a pretty good idea at faroutadventures.ca/about/your-travel-budget where we offer a general breakdown of costs for meals drinks, shopping, activities, etc based on your specific trip.
What’s the average age of trip participant? Is there a maximum age?
Our trips are designed for 18-30 somethings. This is due mostly to the inherently active nature of our trips, which are admittedly a little more physically demanding than your typical group tour. We do a lot of walking, climbing, hiking and the such in some very hot temperatures, which can be a challenge for some. Within that age range the majority of our guests seem to fall in the 23-29 range. That being said, we believe that anyone who is up to the task should have the opportunity to participate, so we do occasionally accept travellers outside of that range, as long as they are comfortable undertaking the inherently active nature of our trips.
How many people are normally in a group?
Groups sizes can vary quite a bit depending on the tour and the time of year, but are typically between 8-14 guests plus 2 guides.
How do I meet up with my group?
Whether you are flying on your own or we are arranging your flight for you, we will send you an email after booking detailing the process for meeting with your group leader. In general, it is a very simple process. We will have a facebook group set up for each and all of our tours detailing the itinerary and including instructions for meeting at the arrival destination. Airport pick up is generally free. All customers on flights booked by Far Out will be picked up at the airport with their fellow group members and transported to their accommodation free of charge. For customers booking their own flights we will make every effort to have a guide meet you and pick you up for free. If not possible due to schedule, we will give you all the necessary information and assistance to make your transportation from the airport to our accommodation simple and worry free.
Will there be Wi-Fi access?
Wi-Fi access is largely available everywhere you go nowadays, and our trip destinations are no exception. Wi-Fi is available at all our accommodations, as well as most bars and restaurants, so you can post all the awesome jealousy inducing pics you want, and mom and dad don’t have to worry about being able to contact you.
Are there a lot of early mornings?
There may be a few early mornings on days we need to catch a train or boat or something of the sort, but for the most part you are free to get up whenever you please. It’s your trip and we won’t tell you when it’s time for you to get out of bed.
Will it rain a lot?
You have probably heard of terms like “wet season” or “dry season” used to describe the weather in warm places. While there are certainly seasonal weather patterns, we would be hesitant to say it never rains during dry season, or it always rains during wet season. While you are certainly likely to see more cloudless days during dry season, you still get plenty of beautiful days during wet season and when it rains its usually only for a few minutes and then the sun is back out. The other bonus to wet season is that the vegetation is lush and beautiful, and things like rivers and waterfalls are flowing at their full potential (perfect for tubing). Wet season normally starts around May and lasts till October in Laos, similar to other South East Asian countries. August is generally the wettest month of the year. Also in line with other SE Asian countries, it is normally characterized by a couple hours of rain each day, rather than constant downpour. Due to Laos’ mountainous terrain, landslides are not uncommon during wet season and the rivers can become quite wild. While this can be great for activities like tubing and kayaking, it can also lead to a lot of road closures. Luckily boat travel comes into its own during the wet season with boats making much better pace in the high waters. Laos has 2 distinct dry seasons. The cool dry season lasts from November to February, and is generally the high season for tourism. This is an excellent time to visit as the weather is pleasant, and the rivers are at an ideal level for river travel. The hot dry season usually only lasts the months of March and April, but it is very hot. Temperatures in the 40’s are not uncommon.
What’s The Best Time To Book?
The simple answer to this question is as soon as you can. We operate a small number of trips with limited space, so trips can fill up fast. For most of our trips we are able to accept reservations up to 2 weeks prior to departure as long as there is still availability, but we generally recommend booking at least 3 months before your planned departure to allow us and yourself time to prepare for your trip, especially if you need help booking flights or need to arrange a payment plan. Booking early will also ensure you aren’t planning a 20 day adventure of a lifetime, only to find out you waited just a bit too long and now the trip is full.
How much spending money should I bring?
Ultimately the amount of spending money you will need will depend on the country you are travelling to and your own spending preferences. In general though, a minimum of about 25 EUROS a day is recommended for food, drink and basic necessities. It is POSSIBLE to eat for less than that, but you don’t always want to be eating street food or burning time hunting down the cheapest menu in town. If you want to partake in a few additional activities, do some shopping, and indulge in a few drinks in the evenings, then we would recommend increasing your budget accordingly.
Do I need to tip my tour leaders/guides/drivers?
At Far Out Adventures, we do not accept tips. Our Leaders are there to show you a good time and be your friend and we do have a pretty good time doing it. The job itself is reward enough, and we would rather you to keep your money for having an awesome time. As far as the drivers and day tour guides we use along the way, we do believe in rewarding good service, and our trip leaders always tip well on behalf of the whole group.
What should I bring for luggage?
Whatever works best for you will be fine, but we are big believers in the efficacy of the backpack. There are times on certain trips when we may have to walk a little to get to our accommodations, sometimes over sand, or up stairs, so our trip leaders personally prefer backpacks because its easier than dragging a suitcase. That being said you can bring whatever kind of luggage you are comfortable with. We do suggest bringing at least a small “day” bag or backpack.
What should I pack?
After you register and pay your deposit, we will send you a welcome email detailing your booking information and offering tips on how to prepare and pack for your trip. We go by the old adage “less is more”. You don’t want to lug around a heavy bag full of clothes, only half of which you’ll end up wearing. We recommend packing a few changes of clothes and leaving space in your bag so you have room to bring things back home. Laundry services are available everywhere we go.
When do I receive more detailed information regarding my trip?
After you have registered for your trip and paid your deposit, we will send you a welcome email outlining everything you need to know for your trip, including a trip preparation guide and your exact itinerary outlining the places you will go, the dates you’ll be there, how you’ll get there, and where you will stay. You will also be invited to join a Facebook group for your specific tour, where you can meet and introduce yourself to your fellow group participants, as well as access important information about your trip.
Will I need a passport?
Yes, you will need a passport with at least 6 months validity from the date of your return to travel internationally with Far Out Adventures. Application times for Canadian passports vary so it is best to apply for one asap if you do not have one yet.
Will I need any travel visas?
Visa requirements are different for every country we go to and are usually specific to the nationality of the traveller. Contact the closest embassy or consulate of the country you are travelling to for specific tourist visa requirements.
Will I need to get travel insurance?
Everyone who travels with Far Out Adventures must provide proof of travel insurance before departing for their trip. Please contact us if you have any questions about insurance.
Will my allergies or other health problems prevent me from participating?
We know first hand the difficulties that travelling with allergies presents, but it has never stopped us from getting out and seeing the world. We have personally found google translate to be our biggest ally in the battle against allergies. If you inform us of your allergies, we will make sure to have a print out stating your allergies in the local language so that we can inform the person taking your food or beverage order can communicate your needs to the kitchen. Following are couple of basic tips for those travelling with allergies. 1)If you have an epi-pen, bring it with you and carry it at all times. Be sure to inform your group leader of its existence and provide them any necessary instructions in the event it is needed. There will be a place to keep it cold in all of our accommodations. 2)Make sure you inform your fellow group members about your allergy and where to find your medication in the event of an emergency. This is important in the event you go on day trips without your guides. We ask that you let us know about any health concerns you have that may potentially affect your enjoyment of your trip, so that we can properly assist you and help you avoid any health problems in paradise.
What happens if I get sick or hurt?
While it is luckily not very common, one of the unfortunately realities of travelling is that sometimes people do get or hurt or sick. Our Trip Leaders always carry a list of all medical centers and hospitals located in or near the destinations we travel to. They are also trained in first aid, and carry a first aid kit with them. In the rare event that a traveller requires medical attention, we will immediately have one of the two trip leaders escort them to the hospital or medical center to assist them with the insurance prosses and whatever else is required, such as helping the traveller get in contact with anyone they may need to inform of the situation back home. Minor illnesses like traveler's diarrhea are more common and generally caused by eating something your stomach isn’t used to like spicy food, or food that has been prepared differently, or something weird and exotic that caught your eye, like fried crickets or insect larvae. While it can be a pain in the butt (pun intended), you will always have access to bathrooms and if we have to make a pit stop along the way, it’s no problem at all.
