You’re naturally curious and love variety
“Vivid nature, voluptuous landscapes and a vibrant culture collide with a painful past and optimistic future to make Laos an enigmatic experience for the adventurous.” – Lonely Planet
Laos is just the place for you to get out and about for a mash-up of culture, landscape and activity.
Food is always a good place to start: share our love of sticky rice, eaten by hand; try local delicacies such as ant-egg soup or fresh-roasted coffee beans picked nearby, or find the best croissant ever.
Test drive different modes of transport: Try a motorcycle for the first time and head off on a multi-day journey of exploration to see waterfalls, caves and coffee plantations on the Central or Southern Laos Loops. Take a selfie in a tuktuk and send it home to those stuck in the traffic.
With over 160 ethnic groups, ours is a country of so many cultural traditions and beliefs, and people still wearing their traditional clothing, especially on festival days. (In fact, why not rent an outfit and join them?)
Ours is a country known for its beauty: the natural waters of jade green or cool blue, karst landscapes you’d only thought possible in the movies, forests thick and green and expanding beyond the horizon…”
And it’s a place where we still take the time to make things by hand, creating an artisanal beauty so different from the mass production of the rest of the world. Come and admire the Lao women in their stylish sinhs, or find your own unique embroidered or woven bamboo curio.
Quietly participate in the daily Buddhist alms-giving rituals as dozens of orange-clad monks file modestly past. Meditate at a monastery, or have your cares and stresses massaged away in the Lao style.
Places to go, people to meet, curiosity to take care of? #wowlaos
