From the fertile lowlands along the Mekong River valley to rough and mountainous highlands, Laos offers Southeast Asia’s most pristine environment and intact cultures. This land-locked country, of which more than 70% is comprised of highland area, has stunning natural beauty with lush jungles, limestone forests, rivers and waterfalls.

With a rich culture and history, this peaceful country boasts numerous historic sites, beautiful temples, and strong spiritual traditions, all of which are a testament of its long history. Along with a multitude of celebrations and festivals, Laos also offers great opportunities for a variety of outdoor adventures, including trekking, kayaking, cycling or caving.

Vientiane, belies its title as the capital. It is unhurried and relaxed as normal day by day activity quietly proceeds. It is situated on the banks of the Mekong River and looks across at Thailand on the opposite bank.

Luang Prabang, the historic former royal city, encircled by mountains, is the jewel in the crown in Laos. Here are so many architecturally interesting and different styled temples and centuries old monasteries to satisfy the most enthusiastic visitor.

It is not just the beauty of the country but also the kindness, friendliness, hospitality and generosity of its people along with unique and attractive crafts and arts that makes a stay in Laos an unforgettable experience.
