The country of Laos is situated in Southeast Asia, neighboring Vietnam, Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia, and China.

Aside from its beautifully preserved culture, Laos boasts of lush jungles, winding rivers, indigenous village markets and the Plain of Jars archaeological site, which has been declared by UNESCO as a World Heritage site.

Tourists can enjoy wide range of activities like trekking, kayaking and caving in the many national parks and rivers. Vientiane, the capital city, with an interesting blend of modern and colonial architecture is one of the major cities.

The capital, Vientiane, is small, charming and picturesque, sitting on the banks of the Mekong. It contains some colourful and sacred pagodas, fascinating museums, wide boulevards and attractions like Patuxai, Vientiane's Arc de Triomphe.

Laos is far more than a sum of its cities. In fact the stunning unspoilt surroundings offer visitors a range of possibilities when comes to striking out into nature. Dramatic waterfalls, rivers and mountains grace the countryside and can be easily reached from most of the country's main destinations.

There are 68 minority tribes in Laos and they offer tourist insight into many ancient tradition and arts. The Lao people are skilled carvers and many pagodas display this art. Cotton and silk weaving is highly developed, distinct and prized.

Laos is also a hikers paradise. Trekking from locations like Muang Khai along a steep mountain pass to Ban Haew allows visitors to experience the breathtaking scenery and also reach remote hill tribe villages populated by the Hmong and Khmou peoples.

For adventure tourists, river rafting is also a popular addition to any travel itinerary in Laos. This is an exciting way to experience the power of the river and at the same time explore the banks for wildlife and take in the stunning surroundings close up.

A fabulous way to enjoy the beauty of Laos is travelling by boat along the Mekong River. This relaxed but fascinating option takes you past local hill tribe villages, into remote mountain areas and close to some of the country's most majestic scenery. A wide range of ethnic communities populate the river banks and visitors can either drift past or stop off too visit them and meet the friendly local inhabitants. Even beyond the main cultural centers, Buddhist temples and shrines are a common sight and there are also some interesting ruins to visit along some of the popular cruising routes.

Luang Prabang, a short flight north, was the former royal capital; this ancient city has become the centerpiece of tourism in Laos, a city of majestic buildings and serene natural surroundings that has survived decades of war and revolution. UNESCO has declared Luang Prabang a World Heritage site.

Laos can be reached through flight connections from many South East Asian Capital Cities (Specially Bangkok and Singapore).The international airports in Laos are situated at Vientiane and Luang Prabang.
