Famous for its relaxed atmosphere, Laos is one of Asia's most laidback and charming destinations. Visitors today encounter a simple society with a strong spiritual tradition where the stresses and strains of the modern world seem irrelevant. The country moves at a pace as languid as the Mekong River that flows through it. Towns are less hectic than elsewhere in Asia and the countryside is a combination of beauty and tranquility. Despite increased interest from the outside world, Laos still remains the undoubted undiscovered gem of Asia. The landlocked nation of a little over six million people exudes a delightful, almost other-worldly charm and reminds one of a simpler, easier time.
Come to Laos to experience the rolling mountains, remote villages, tribal crafts, the magic of the Mekong, to enjoy getting to know Laos' friendly and hospitable people, sample delicious Lao cuisine incorporating fresh local herbs and spices, and to embrace the country's slow and peaceful way of life. Open your heart, open your mind, and let the genuine faith and generous hospitality of Laos replenish your soul.
