Why Laos?

A less-travelled country for an authentic Indochina experience

Laos, known for mountainous terrain, French colonial architecture, hill tribe settlements, Buddhist monasteries and the mighty Mekong River. Landlocked, the country has a slow pace of life with friendly locals, and has remained relatively untouched compared to its neighbouring countries of Cambodia, China, Burma, Thailand and Vietnam. Luang Prabang, a Unesco World Heritage site, is a popular place to start, as it offers a wonderful variety of colonial architecture, Laotian buildings and Buddhist temples. The magnificent Kuang Si Falls is a highly recommended day excursion and can easily be reached when staying in Luang Prabang. Vientiane, the capital, sits on the banks of the Mekong, and is home to the That Luang monument, where a reliquary reportedly houses the Buddha’s breastbone, plus the Patuxai war memorial and Talat Sao (Morning Market), a complex jammed with food, clothes and craft stalls. You can also enjoy a variety of outdoor activities such as tubing in picturesque Vang Vieng, on the Nam Song River.
