A Backpacker's Dream

Our 25-day trip through Laos, Thailand & Cambodia is the perfect adventure to explore the beauty of the towns, jungles, rivers and temples that exist within the interior of these three equally astounding countries.

Our only 25-day trip, we simply could not fit all the amazing activities and destinations of this trip into 20 days, so the extra time allows for a bit of chill time and balances out the flurry of epic activities you’ll experience as you loop through 3 of the most interesting countries in the world.

But if you want, this trip can keep your daily itineraries filled to the brim with a seemingly endless amount of incredible things to see and do.

Your camera will fill quickly with astonishing waterfalls cascading into an oasis in the middle of a tropical jungle, massive trees hundreds of years old growing right out of ancient temples and lines of hundreds of Buddhist monks in saffron robes walking down the street. Your friends will have trouble believing that everything you experienced was on one trip!

I just finished the Laos, Thailand, and Cambodia trip. It was such an amazing experience and I wouldn’t change anything about it! Literally only have positive words for the trip and the leaders!
