Known for its vast mountainous landscapes, ancient temples, unspoiled jungles and authentic cuisine, Laos is definitely a destination worth adding to your bucket list.
A lesser-known spot for tourists in comparison to its more popular neighbours, Thailand and Vietnam, the natural beauty and charming rural villages of Laos will make you fall in love with the place as soon as you arrive.
With so many exciting tourist attractions, it can be difficult to pick and choose from the many destinations that Laos has to offer.
With that in mind, we have created this handy guide to help you make the most of your trip to this relaxed, laid-back country.
Surrounded by miles of vast green hills and never-ending mountain ranges, Luang Prabang’s old town is a must-see for any first-time visitors to Laos.
The main streets are lined with extravagant golden roofed temples, old wooden houses and French colonial-style villas.
Wake up at dawn to witness the Alms giving ceremony. It’s a popular Buddhist tradition that sees the orange-robed monk’s parade down the main street in single-file, ready to receive balls of rice from the local people.
The charming village has something for everyone. From the bustling morning markets offering an array of fresh local produce to exploring the Kuang Si Falls as well as a magical waterfall located 29km outside of the old town. Luang Prabang is definitely worth a visit.
