10 Jours Lazy Laos Aventure

Avec un peu de tout pour les amoureux de la nature, de la culture et de l'aventure, ce diamant endormi à l'état brut plaira même aux routards les plus exigeants. Voyagez maintenant au Laos alors que c'est encore l'un des joyaux les moins connus du sud-est asiatique.

Le Laos est un peu plus décontracté que certains de leurs voisins. La vie se déroule à un rythme très détendu ici, et pour les voyageurs comme nous, cela peut être une pause très agréable du rythme souvent mouvementé de l’Asie du Sud-Est. Il n’y a pas de gratte-ciels, de centres commerciaux, de cinémas ou d’autoroutes très fréquentées ici, mais ça va. Au lieu de cela, le Laos offre une nature à couper le souffle, des expériences culturelles authentiques et une ambiance décontractée qui ne peut être égalée. Ici, vous pouvez faire une randonnée à travers la forêt tropicale la plus diversifiée au monde, en vous arrêtant à quelques-unes des cascades les plus spectaculaires et des piscines d’eau douce que vous verrez jamais. Visitez des temples au toit doré exquis et assistez aux moines qui acceptent leurs offrandes quotidiennes à l’aube pendant la cérémonie de l’aumône. Faites une excursion en bateau sur le Mékong vers de superbes grottes contenant d’anciennes reliques. Sautez des balançoires et des tyroliennes dans des lagons cristallins, ou devenez un peu humide et sauvage avec d’autres randonneurs du monde entier tout en descendant la rivière Nam Song, entourée par certains des paysages naturels les plus spectaculaires du pays. Le Laos est aussi sauvage et authentique que possible. Avec un peu de tout pour les amoureux de la nature, de la culture et de l’aventure, ce diamant endormi à l’état brut plaira même aux routards les plus exigeants. Voyagez maintenant au Laos alors que c’est encore l’un des joyaux les moins connus du sud-est asiatique.

- Que Ferez-vous

Vous arrivez à Bangkok tard le premier soir. Le groupe se réunit pour les boissons de bienvenue et une courte séance d'information dans notre maison d'hôtes. Si vous êtes prêt pour cela, nous nous dirigeons vers Khao San Road, où vous pouvez obtenir un authentique repas thaïlandais et prendre une boisson fraîche après une longue journée de voyage. Si vous voulez vraiment "Far Out", vous pouvez prendre un "seau", ou essayez l'un des "délices" du chariot de rue, comme les larves d'insectes frits et les grillons! C'est aussi un endroit idéal pour obtenir des fournitures de dernière minute que vous avez peut-être oublié à la maison. Notre deuxième jour est à Bangkok est une bonne journée pour aller voir quelques marchés, profiter des possibilités de shopping de classe mondiale autour de la ville, ou faire une excursion d'une journée à l'une des nombreuses attractions touristiques de la ville. Dans la soirée, nous prenons un mini-bus privé à la gare où nous prendrons le train de nuit à la frontière du Laos, une expérience à ne pas manquer.

Notre train arrive tôt le matin à Nong Khai, en Thaïlande. Après avoir traversé le "pont de l'amitié" au Laos et obtenu nos visas, nous sautons dans un minibus privé pour le trajet vers le nord jusqu'à Vang Vieng. Après un long voyage en Thaïlande, le groupe se retrouve pour un délicieux repas traditionnel laotien dans notre maison d'hôtes, avant de partir pour une nuit en ville. Le jour 4, le groupe rejoint la rivière Nam Song pour une journée de flânerie, tout en admirant la vue époustouflante sur les falaises environnantes, et en s'arrêtant dans les impressionnants bars qui bordent la rivière. Les jours 5 et 6 sont à vous pour découvrir les incroyables grottes, lagunes, temples, kayaks, VTT, etc. Vang Vieng est un endroit magnifique avec d'innombrables possibilités d'aventure.

Le matin du jour 7, nous embarquons dans notre minibus privé et nous nous dirigeons vers le nord pour un trajet incroyablement pittoresque jusqu'à notre dernier arrêt au Laos, Luang Prabang. Après notre arrivée à notre maison d'hôtes, nous faisons connaissance avec le groupe d'une promenade au centre-ville / bord de la rivière. Ici, vous pouvez profiter d'un authentique dîner au Laos et admirer le coucher de soleil incroyable sur les rives du puissant Mékong, faire une croisière au coucher du soleil ou visiter le marché nocturne (l'un de nos favoris en Asie) pour faire le plein de souvenirs et de souvenirs . Le jour 8 le groupe se dirige vers les chutes d'eau de Kuang Si pour une journée incroyablement amusante de randonnée à travers la forêt tropicale luxuriante à quelques-unes des plus belles chutes d'eau en Asie du Sud-Est. Pour la dernière journée au Laos, vous pouvez passer votre matinée à la cérémonie de l'aumône à l'aube en regardant des moines bouddhistes dans leurs robes oranges, en train de ramasser leur nourriture pour la journée. Dans l'après-midi, visitez quelques-uns des nombreux temples aux toits dorés, faites un tour en bateau dans les nombreuses grottes de la région ou visitez des cascades de classe mondiale.

Plutôt que de prendre le train de nuit à destination de Bangkok, nous avons raccourci le temps de trajet et embarqué à bord d'un avion de Luang Prabang vers la Thaïlande pour la dernière nuit de notre aventure Far Out. Nos hôtes à Bangkok organisent une fête d'envoi spéciale prévue pour nous. Dites adieu aux incroyables nouveaux amis que vous avez créés au cours des 10 derniers jours et préparez-vous pour votre voyage de retour.

- À quoi s’attendre

Vang Vieng - Vang Vieng n'a pas été sur la carte de voyage longtemps, mais a fait un atterrissage dur quand un certain génie a décidé de sauter dans une chambre à air et de flotter dans la rivière quelque temps autour de 1999. Depuis, les routards affluent à Vang Vieng Flânez sur le Nam Sok, sautez d'un bar à l'autre au bord de la rivière et savourez une partie de bière-pong ou de gobelet tout en admirant les merveilleuses formations rocheuses et les superbes falaises de calcaire qui entourent la région. Le retour à la ville est une véritable surprise, alors vous aurez envie de prendre l'un des sacs imperméables à l'eau disponibles dans toute la ville.

Bien que la ville elle-même soit petite, elle est grande sur le plaisir et la beauté naturelle. Vang Vieng abrite également de nombreuses grottes, temples et lagunes qui ne sont qu'à quelques minutes en voiture. En raison de l'abondance des activités disponibles, la ville peut se sentir assez endormi pendant la journée, mais les choses prennent vraiment vie le soir quand les randonneurs reviennent de leurs excursions d'une journée. Certain pour faire plaisir aux amoureux de la nature, aux aventuriers et aux noctambules, Vang Vieng offre des paysages sauvages et dramatiques et une scène festive tout aussi sauvage.

Luang Prabang - Situé dans un contexte de verdure de la forêt vibrante et de paysages de montagne accidentés, la ville endormie de Luang Prabang repose au pied du mont. Phousi où se rencontrent les puissantes rivières du Mékong et du Nam Song. Connu pour être à la maison à certains des plus beaux temples et des cascades incroyables en Asie du Sud, aucune aventure au Laos n'est complète sans un voyage Luang Prabang. Un charmant mélange de temples dorés, de structures traditionnelles en bois du Laos et d'architecture coloniale à la française, cette magnifique petite ville de montagne a un charme unique en Asie du Sud-Est.

Observez de longues files de moines qui recueillent leur nourriture pour la journée pendant la cérémonie de l'aumône à l'aube. Faites une randonnée dans la jungle jusqu'à la cascade de Kuang Si, considérée comme l'une des plus impressionnantes de toute l'Asie, ou marchez le long des sentiers luxuriants de la forêt tropicale vers les magnifiques cascades de Tad Sae, repérez des singes et d'autres animaux de la forêt tropicale le chemin. Montez la colline de Phou Si et admirez les incroyables temples bouddhistes et les monuments en or qui parsèment les sentiers menant au sommet. Le soir, vous pourrez dîner dans un restaurant au bord de la rivière et profiter du coucher de soleil incroyable sur le Mékong, puis vous rendre au marché nocturne de Luang Prabang, l'un de nos favoris en Asie, pour échanger des cadeaux et des souvenirs. Un couvre-feu à 23h pour les entreprises de la ville a empêché la création d'une vie nocturne, mais ces règles ne s'appliquent pas au bowling situé juste à l'extérieur de la ville, qui sert de boîte de nuit à Luang Prabang. Ce n'est pas un environnement de boîte de nuit standard avec un bowling à 10 quilles et une gamme de tir à l'arc tard dans la nuit, c'est quand même un endroit super amusant pour passer une soirée avec vos amis et apprendre à connaître d'autres voyageurs.

- 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.
