Laos OverView

The whole country of Laos is absolutely gorgeous, and everywhere you turn you find yourself surrounded by karst mountains, scenic rivers, impressive waterfalls, and numerous caves. “Away from the cities, it’s easy to make a quick detour off the beaten track and end up in a fairytale landscape with jagged limestone cliffs, brooding jungle and the snaking Mekong River as a backdrop

Laos TRAVEL GUIDE IN DEPTH

Why travel to Laos

Arriving from Phnom Penh, Cambodia, our first stop was Don Det; an island which has become a mecca for backpackers offering a laidback island lifestyle, beautiful waterfalls and $5 bungalows with river views and hammocks to enjoy the view with a cold Beer Lao. (Beer Lao may be the greatest Asian beer ever!) Within just a few days in Laos, we already knew we weren’t going to be able to see the entire country in just one month. For our inner adrenaline junkie there were underground river caves, white-water rapids and jungle ziplines. For our inner wildlife nut there were treks through some of Southeast Asia’s most pristine forests, still home to rare creatures. For our inner foodie there was the kaleidoscope of flavours that is Lao cuisine. What to do in Laos. We found Laos to be one of the most authentic destinations in Asia, and 4 weeks was simply not enough time to take everything in. Though we absolutely tried. Here are 6 reasons why you should drop everything you’re doing and travel to Laos right now.
