So what’s so special about Laos – it’s the people, the culture and the experiences that go beyond all expectations. Laos is still unspoilt – a less touristed and relatively undiscovered country packed with beautiful scenery, relaxed and friendly people, great food and stunning sights. It has a long and fascinating history of royalty, occupation and struggle for independence, awe inspiring ‘vats’ (temples) and a unique mix of French colonial and traditional architecture.
While some may have concerns that Laos is still developing and is relatively new to the travel scene when compared with some of its more developed neighbors like Thailand and Vietnam, in the major centers there is a range of accommodation and facilities to suit all tastes. Although it may yet have reached true ‘International’ standards, Laos has something more to offer… a hospitality and warmth that more than make amends.
