Laos Travel Guide
Laos Travel Guide – Laos officially known as the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, it is one of the great travel frontiers, landlocked and mountainous, swamped by jungles and promising Indian Jones adventures in remote tribal villages and ancient Buddhish caves. With Thailand on one side and Vietnam on the other, you might expect Laos to be commercial and crowded, but this is Asia’s backwater, where life moves as slowly as the churning waters of the Mekong River, which forms the border with three countries – Myanmar, Thailand and Cambodia as it snakes south towards the Gulf of Thailand.
Laos has Buddhism permeates every facet of life, change comes slowly, and cities bed down early. The perfect place to break from office politics or put a pause in a hyperactive travel agenda, this land of mountain, mists and untamed natural beauty tempts with unrivalled peace and serenity. Open your heart, open your mind, and let the genuine faith and generous hospitality of Laos replenish your soul.
