Laos is one of the poorest countries in Southeast Asia, and as a landlocked country with a handful of famous attractions, it is often overlooked. Travelers who do come to this country come for the laid back atmosphere, and beautiful landscape with striking sunsets and welcoming people. Throughout the country you'll find colonial French towns and beautiful Buddhist stupas, so while it may be less popular, when you look at the subtleties, Laos has plenty to offer.
Popular experiences include a visit to the golden Phra That Luang temple and Wat Si Saket, the site of 2,000 Buddha statues. Enjoy the growing industry of ecotourism or take a longtail boat ride down the Mekong River. Tubing is one of the most popular activities in Laos.
