Laos Travel Guide, What to see in Laos

Used to be known in the past as Lan Xang (Land of a Million Elephants), Laos is a landlocked and the most mysterious of the former French occupied land.

The country is covered mostly with dense forests and rugged mountains, many of which are home to rare and endangered species. Highlights include Vientiane-the capital city with a combination of colonial weathered villas and the towering Buddhist towers above trees; Luang Phabang claimed the best preserved city in Asia and a World Heritage site; Vang Vieng famous with the rugged river settings; the mysterious Plain of Jars in Xieng Khuang; the South with the pre-Angkorian temple of Wat Phu and the 4,000 islands of Si Phan Don. Laos offers adventure travel such as trekking and river cruising, nature tours, culture tours and relaxing holidays and vacations.

The Lao people are devout Buddhists and always show their genuine frendliness to foreign visitors. Even though by far Laos is more la back than its neighbors, but with improved infrastructure many travellers have found the country to be the highlights of their tours to the region.
