Slow slow - fast, probably the best way to sum up Laos way of life. These are the most chilled out adrenalin junkies in SE Asia.
Take a slow boat up the Mekong; sip a smoothie and watch monks collecting alms in Luang Prabang or knock it up a gear and sign up for a 6am adventure activity. This is a get up early, get to bed early kinda place. Tends to fit well with uber ickle urchins.
This is the most off the beaten-track we will recommend but for those who like a bit of adventure Laos is a gem. Many littlies are on the go here, so long as you come armed with the right attitudes and a dose of our parent prep, then you should have a ball.
