The ancient kingdom of “Millions of Elephants”, Laos, draws worldwide attention mainly for its awe-inspiring nature with rugged mountains, impressive waterfalls and mighty Mekong River. Like its neighboring countries in Southeast Asia, Laos also has a rich culture with several UNESCO world heritage sites. Splendidly decorated temples, exotic morning procession rite of colorful saffron monks and relaxing laid back life, Laos makes an ideal destination for those loving to step back in time.
Little known but enchanting, the sparsely populated Laos offers a chance to get steeped in its authenticity and exoticism. Wandering around the quirky capital of Vientiane, admiring a romantic sunset over the Luang Prabang royal town and travelling through lush tropical forests with a Laos ethnic homestay promises an incredible adventure experience you can not find anywhere else.
The best time to visit Laos is from October through March as the weather offers best balance during these months. Also, most Laos festivals take place in this period.
