Laos is a mountainous and landlocked country in South-East Asia that has long been isolated from the outside world. Laos is one of Asia’s most beautiful secrets. Traditional ways of life continue in the face of our rapidly changing world as hill-tribes retain their age-old customs and the scene of the devout Buddhist monks collecting alms is a daily event. As one of the least visited countries in South East Asia, Laos offers an unspoiled glimpse into life in the region. It has a variety of landscapes to explore, from thick jungle and lush floodplains through to dramatically rugged mountains and cave networks that were once used as hideouts during the war. Its serene blend of forested mountains, limestone karsts, and riverfront towns, keeps nature lovers coming back again and again.
Vientiane, with its gilded temples and colonial villas, is quickly changing. Visit now before it is enveloped by the modern world. Beguiling ancient capital of Luang Prabang, nestled between the Mekong and Nam Khan Rivers, is still a place that feels as if it is on the cusp of discovery. Luang Prabang is one of the most enchanting destinations anywhere, with stunning architecture, a magnificent setting and a serene mood. Saffron robed monks, century old monasteries, rivers and caves and exciting natural wilderness gives adventure travelers plenty to experience.
As the country opens up, with an increasing number of roads and bridges being built the amazing tourist attractions in Laos are becoming more and more accessible.
