For a small country, Laos is one of the most diverse places in South East Asia. Laos is graced with many serene and relaxed towns, a product of the country's Buddhist traditions of peace and respect. The wonderful city of Luang Prabang is no exception, with its vibrant market, ornate monasteries and the nearby Kuang Si waterfalls, it's a place most visitors spend at least a few days.
Other highlights for imaginative travellers include the peaceful northern village of Luang Namtha, the base for some incredible treks and optional adventure activities in the forests and rivers of Nam Ha National Park. Vang Vieng, in the heart of the country, is another incredible town and known for its outdoor activities such as trekking, cycling and rock climbing!
