About Laos

Laos is nestled in the heart of Indochina and exemplifies the charming traits of the Southeast Asia peninsula better than anywhere. Easily accessed by air from Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Danang in Vietnam; Siem Reap and Phnom Penh in Cambodia; or from Thailand along the Mekong River, it provides great insight into many cultural traditions that have been lost in other areas of Asia.

The Mekong River surges through Laos, from the extreme north in Phou Den Din National Bio-diversity Conservation Area, through VangVieng and the peaceful capital of Vientiane, all the way down to the 4000 Islands on the Cambodian border. While there is no sea port, the variety and opportunity for river cruises is outstanding.
