Laos
Laos is the perfect destination for travelers looking for “off the track” experience. As one of the less developed countries in South East Asia, Laos remains authentic and little known to tourists.

Essential

Vientiane is the smallest capital in the Asian region, offering a special atmosphere. Among other things, visiting the ancient Buddhist temples is one of the highlights of the city. Classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site, the former Royal Capital, Luang Prabang is a “must-see” destination to understand the history of Laos. However, the adventurers would be delighted to discover the various landscapes of Laos such as the Boloven Plateau, famous for its tea and coffee plantations as well as its ethnic villages.

Atypical

The 4,000 islands and its maze of waterways are the most unusual landscape in Laos; while the Plain of Jars offers a mysterious getaway through its fields of millenary stones.

Vientiane

The capital of Laos, Vientiane is a very quiet city compared to the other cities in Asia but it is nonetheless the most "active" city in the country. Located along the Mekong River, the city offers a blend of ancient gilded Buddhist temples and French colonial architecture.
