When people plan their trip to South East Asia Laos is often sadly missed. We think this is a real shame as Laos has so much to offer the traveler.
Laos is a land of lush green forests, jungles, mountains and terrain. All this beautiful greenery provides a backdrop for all types of adventures.
Laos is one of the last communist countries in the world and is also a Buddhist country. This makes for an amazing cultural experience. You can visit some of the beautiful Buddhist temples throughout Laos but make sure to do your research first as some don’t like tourists around.
Laos has some of the most amazing markets to shop in where you can buy some beautiful souvenirs to take home. The materials and textiles made by the locals are truly beautiful!
The tropical climate creates some massive rainfalls throughout the country and this in turn makes some of the most beautiful waterfalls we have ever seen.
