  • Flag
Of the three former French colonies in Indochina, Laos is the least developed and most enigmatic. A succession of colonial domination, internal armed conflict and dogmatic socialism meant that in the seventies, the country would sink and almost 10% of its population emigrate. Today, after being isolated from the rest of the world for almost decade and a half, this country, landlocked and sparsely populated, enjoy a period of peace, economic and political structures are stabilized gradually and the flow has started of visitors. The total absence of foreign influence allows the traveler to approach the more traditional lifestyle in Southeast Asia. From the fertile lowlands of the Mekong River valley to the rugged mountains of Annam, travelers who have visited Laos qualify him as the star of Southeast Asia.

In Laos you can visit cities like Huay Xai, Laos, Luang Nam Tha or Vientiane
