Singapore – Scoot has launched sales for its direct Singapore-Laos flights with a limited period promotion on flights from Singapore to Luang Prabang and Vientiane. One-way all- in fares start from as low as S$88, available on Flyscoot.com from now till 22 January 2019. With the addition of Laos, Scoot’s network will span 68 destinations across 19 countries and territories.
The three-times-weekly flights operated with Scoot’s A320 aircraft are slated to commence on 1 April 2019. They will operate a circular routing departing from Singapore for Luang Prabang, followed by Vientiane, before heading back to Singapore. These routes were transferred from sister airline SilkAir, making Scoot the only airline offering direct Singapore-Laos flights from April 2019. Luang Prabang and Vientiane are the first two of several new destinations Scoot will be adding to its network this year.
Mr Lee Lik Hsin, Scoot CEO, said, “We are thrilled to welcome Laos to our network. We are confident that the addition of Vientiane and Luang Prabang will boost Scoot’s proposition as a network carrier offering refreshing travel opportunities for those seeking authentic experiences off the beaten track.”
One of the most untouched countries in the world, Laos is renowned for its cinematic, Hollywood-orthy landscapes. Besides historical and cultural attractions, Laos has just as much to offer the adventurous traveller with activities such as caving, trekking and mountain biking.
Set along the Mekong River, the capital city Vientiane is Laos’ largest city and its economic centre. It houses several temples and religious monuments, the most famous of which is Pha That Luang, said to contain the breastbone of Buddha. Arguably some of the best food in Southeast Asia can also be found here, with highlights including the authentic Lao specialty of Laap, a type of refreshing meat-based salad served either raw or cooked, and Sai Oua, Laotian sausages seasoned with herbs or fermented with sticky rice.
If respite from the hustle and bustle of city life is what you need, find relaxation in Luang Prabang. This ancient city has earned a place on the UNESCO World Heritage list as an important site blending Lao traditional urban architecture and French colonial era architecture. Explore the intriguing Pak Ou Caves, which house thousands of Buddhist figures, ride a bike up mountainous roads to the breathtaking Kuang Si Waterfall, or trek up to the top of Mount Phousi for a spectacular view of the city and catch the sunset over Mekong River.
