Exotic Voyages, a luxury travel company, is releasing three new elopement packages featuring some of the most unique elopement/honeymoon destinations around Southeast Asia. Each of these packages has just the right mix of adventure, luxury and privacy that couples often desire. The packages can be tailor-made to accommodate personal preferences, assuring each couple having their own unique experience.
The travel industry has seen a huge shift in the way people travel in the recent years. The days when travelers wanted luxury without getting to know the local culture are far behind us. These days, people want to truly immerse themselves in the culture and are on the hunt to have authentic experiences. This trend has also had an affect on the wedding industry as more and more engaged couples opt out of the traditional ceremony and chose to elope or plan a destination wedding. The idea of experiencing a new and exciting culture while saying yes to your one and only is very romantic and guarantees the couple will create memories for a lifetime.
Let’s forget about popular destinations, and start thinking about something exotic, quirky and unforgettable. Here are Exotic Voyages' three idyllic locations for an elopement that you should consider before making your wedding plans!

1. Muang La Lodge Eco Resort - Muang La, Laos (For the privacy and tranquility seekers)
Situated in the heart of northern Laos in Oudomxay Province, the small town of Muang La attracts travelers eager to experience its unspoiled natural beauty and numerous ethnic groups that dwell between rice paddies and mountains.
Accommodation: Hidden in the small village of Muang-La by the river, this lodge features 5 wooden villas and 9 traditionally designed guest rooms. Exuding peace, tranquillity, and mountain views, the river houses a natural hot spring.
Transport: Part of the Muang La charm is its remote location and it takes a journey to get there. Helicopter transport is possible and can be arranged to shorten the couple's journey to the lodge. Oudom Xay is the nearest airport to the lodge, it is about 30 kilometers from the lodge which is about a 45 minute drive.
A cruise on the Mekong is another option to allow the couple to relax, enjoy the local flora while being transported to the lodge.
Ceremony: The ceremony can be held in the Laos traditional style (with water pouring ceremony, Baci ceremony, and a blessing by a tribal Shaman and local elders). The couple will also have the opportunity to wear traditional local outfits. At the end of the afternoon the couple can enjoy a romantic sunset accompanied by champagne, witness the traditional Khamu dance displayed in their honor which is then followed by a private candle lit dinner.
