Sharing five international borders, Laos is one of the most charming landlocked country in Southeast Asia. The country holds tight to its Buddhist tradition, Laotians live each day gracefully and peacefully with a pleasant and laid-back attitude. But the turbulent history that Laos went through kept it off the tourist map for years, this tranquil country is only emerging recently as an undiscovered jewel in the region.
The vast Mekong River runs through the capital Vientiane and the UNESCO World Heritage listed-town of Luang Prabang, where you will find vintage French architecture and classic Laos design, unique traditions and friendly people with their own charming ways of life. Such as in the magical Luang Prabang, hundreds of saffron-robed monks are gliding through the streets every morning to receive alms – one of the destination’s iconic images.
