We are considering traveling to Laos in December. We're a family of 4 with 2 teenage boys. We're traveling from Beijing, flights best to Vientiane. The boys in the family (hubby included) are not interested in moving from place to place, best is a small family run cabin type hotel/resort, pleasant to hang out and chat with other guests or the owners, with day trips out. As a comparison, favorite trips so far have been to the Loboc River in Bohol, Philippines (day trips to eco-adventure park, kayaking, snorkeling) and to Kanchanaburi, Thailand (swimming at water falls, animal park, elephant rides). Family is expecting me to find another 'gem', any suggestions?
