Laos

Tranquil Laos, nestled between Thailand and Vietnam, is a welcome haven for travelers seeking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of Southeast Asia. Once the historic Buddhist kingdom of Lan Xang, now the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, Laos still retains an atmosphere of seclusion and quiet. From the tree-lines boulevards and Buddhist wats of UNESCO World Heritage site and old royal capital Luang Prabang, to the megalithic Iron Age ruins of the Plain of Jars, to the busy capital of Vientiane on the banks of the Mekong River, Laos has much to offer the adventurous tourist.
