Laos is undoubtedly one of the most underrated countries in Asia. In many parts of this scenic and largely untouched country it’s like stepping back in time. Much of the population still live in small tribal villages where a far more traditional way of life is still in existence.

Previously a French colony, the influence can still be felt in the cities, particularly in the architecture and food – baguettes, cheese and pate are everywhere!

If you like the outdoors you’ll love the hiking in Laos, stunning mountains and immaculate waterfalls were some of the highlights of our time here.
