A great selection of photos from Jeff Perigois’s recent Images of Laos photography tour. The 2-week, fully-escorted tour kicks off in World Heritage Luang Prabang before venturing upcountry to the small riverside town of Nong Khiaw.

From here the tour headed south to Vientiane, the present-day capital, with its lively markets and plentiful street photography opportunities. Above is the City’s iconic Wat Si Saket – Vietniane’s oldest standing wat and said to be home to over 10,000 Buddha images!

Pakse is the starting point of a day tour of the nearby Boloven Plateau home to numerous ethnic minority groups as well as extensive coffee plantations and some awesome scenery.

Just south of Pakse and reached by a short boat journey down the Mekong lies another of Laos’s world heritage sites; the Angkor period remains of Wat Phu.

Last, but certainly not least, the itinerary continues with a 2-day stay on the Mekong River’s picturesque 4,000 Islands area forming the border between southern Laos and northern Cambodia.
