Landlocked Laos offers a slow pace of life where you will be greeted by friendly locals. This charming country has remained relatively untouched compared to its neighbouring countries of Cambodia, China, Burma, Thailand and Vietnam. Luang Prabang, a Unesco World Heritage site, is a popular place to start you tour from. This well preserved town offers a wonderful variety of colonial architecture, Laotian buildings and Buddhist temples. The magnificent Kuang Si Falls is a highly recommended day excursion and can easily be reached when staying in Luang Prabang. Other Laos highlights include the laid-back capital city of Vientiane which is situated on the banks of the Mekong River. Enjoy a variety of outdoor activities such as tubing in the scenic location of Vang Vieng, which is sits next to Nam Song River.
