Laos Destinations

OverView

After years of political isolation and war, Laos is earning cult status amongst travellers for its pristine landscapes, intriguing archaeological sites, ornate temples and unspoiled culture. Despite being the poorest country in the region, it is still one of Asia’s most beautiful and best kept secrets. Traditional ways of life continue in the face of our rapidly changing world as hill-tribes retain their age-old customs and the scene of the devout Buddhist monks collecting alms is a daily event. The twisting Mekong River offers more than just a ride through lush landscapes, but a livelihood for much of the country. Visiting Laos is a truly special experience bound to stay with you forever and we hope to welcome you on an unforgettable holiday to Laos soon.
