Wedged between China, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand, Laos shares heritage, terrains and biomes in common with her neighbours but holds mystery and intrigue that’s all her own. The country is comprised of 16 provinces amongst three regions.
Northern Laos is dominated by mountains and home to the charming former capital and UNESCO World Heritage City of Luang Prabang. Nestled along the banks of the Mekong River, the languid capital city of Vientiane and rural countryside form Central Laos.
The Mekong flatlands and more mountains can be found in the south.
Criss-crossed by myriad rivers and streams, the Mekong River runs through almost 1,900 kilometres of this Buddhist nation’s territory and is a vital part of daily life. Divided into four language groups, the mosaic of culture in Laos is further enhanced by its 49 ethnic groups.
Simplicity and a relaxed sense of grace – this is the beauty of Laos.
