Introduction

South East Asia offers an abundance of tastes, smells, history and culture. Cambodia is a bucket-list destination for many, and combining it with the lesser-explored countryside of Laos makes for a unique South East Asian experience. As you follow the path of the Mekong, experience the French colonial influences in Luang Prabang and witness authentic country life in Champasak. Arriving in Cambodia, ancient history of the Angkor Wat temple complex meets the darker and more recent history of the Khmer Rouge regime. With a brief stop in the Gulf of Thailand to enjoy some down-time, this itinerary is a perfectly paced exploration of this fascinating corner of Asia.

Originally built as the stately home of a French Governor, Sofitel Luang Prabang is not only a stunning hotel but a protected UNESCO World Heritage Site. The centre of the property has a lush garden with local plants, a rice plantation and a pond. Parts of the original site have been carefully incorporated into distinctive features of the hotel, such as the old corner watch towers, now used to provide a location for private dining at sunset, with panoramic views across Luang Prabang. Luang Prabang is a beautiful area that is bursting with local culture, seemingly untouched by the passage of time. Visit local temples and villages to fully immerse yourself in the city’s rich culture.

What people are saying

OROKO created the honeymoon of our dreams in South Africa. The consultation process was very laid-back and conversational. The whole process overall was really quite quick and smooth. There was no trawling through the internet for hours late at night, weighing up costs and reviews of hotels and transfer companies etc – it was all done for us based on the OROKO travel experts’ experiences – which we found to be absolutely spot on. Choosing a ‘luxury travel’ company was a little daunting: We wanted a special honeymoon without spending silly money – and OROKO worked very well with this brief. Believe me when I say our accommodation could not have been more perfect for us. It really was the holiday of our dreams.
