Traces of war and isolation although still existent, Laos is now becoming a popular tourist destination for its rich history and culture, pristine environment and the interesting tradition and way of life still preserved despite the country’s development. The historic city of Luang Prabang and the simple village life and riverfront life in Vientiane appeal to many visitors hungry to know more about this unique country. Exploring places outside the city, Laos offers the forested mountains of Northern Laos, the Plain of Jars in Xieng Khuang Province, the gothic limestone formations around Vang Vieng – the backpacker’s favorite, and in the deep south, is Si Phan Don (Four Thousand Islands), past the market town Pakse, where the mighty Mekong spreads out.

Nature and adventure lovers who go to Laos will enjoy the wilderness where kayaking, rock-climbing, rafting and biking are must-try activities. The greatest thrill may be experienced in community-based trekking where guests can have real interaction with the Laos village homestay. Laos can be explored via bus and train, car, motorcycle, boat, river taxi and bicycle. Traveling can be uniquely fun, thanks to the people you meet, wrong turns made, chickens you share seats with in the bus, and the lào-láo you drink with the smiling Laos family in one of your village explorations.
