Experience a laid back and relaxed country like no other! For years the distinctive culture and intriguing national history of Laos has remained hidden behind its more popular neighbours but it is by no means inferior. Largely untouched by international influences, Laos retains many of its traditional values and customs, making it a great destination for culture seekers the world over.
From the scenic streets of Savannakhet to the bustling markets of Vientiane, the well-walked tracks of the Ho Chi Minh trail to the eternal romance of Luang Prabang, Laos is a country filled with exotic delights and they’re just waiting to be explored. Packed full of jungles, rivers, mountains and caves, Laos is perfect for adventurous travellers and offers a wide array of activities. And of course no visit would be complete without a journey to the magnificent Khone Phapheng, South East Asia’s biggest waterfall!
If you are looking for a more rewarding experience you could get involved with volunteering in Laos. You could be working in a school in a small village in Vientiane or with children in an orphanage school providing a home and education for children from poor families.
