Welcome to Laos

Laos is the most pristine country in Southeast Asia. Hiding its spectacular charm from the outside world, its beauty lies in intact culture, century-old traditions and heritage, graceful landscapes and quite possibly the most chilled-out people on earth. Visitors to Laos get away from the modern demands and stressors of the day-to-day life while once in a lifetime living an unusual laid-back lifestyle. The peaceful riverfront capital city of Vientiane is famous for its delightful rural life while the historic royal city of Luang Prabang is a sacred place where saffron-robed monks spending their lives in ancient monasteries. Away from the city life, there is so much more to see; the tree-laden mountains of Northern Laos, the enchanting limestone karsts in Vang Vieng, which established itself as the exception to the rule that Laos doesn't have nightlife. and in the deep south, past the market town Pakse, is Si Phan Don (Four Thousand Islands), where the Mekong spreads out and all the hammocks are taken. As the country opens up, the tourist map is expanding, making the previously hidden treasures of Laos more accessible to travelers seeking far to the end of the road less travelled.
