Laos, officially known as the Lao People’s Democratic Republic (or Lao PDR – travellers wisecrack this should actually stand for ‘ Lao – Please Don’t Rush’), remains one of the poorest and most intriguing nations in South East Asia.

A landlocked mountainous country, studded with temples, covered with jungles and boasting an increasingly good range of accommodation options – Laos has long been popular with the backpacker market, but the country is now attracting a wider range of travellers. It is also busy developing its standing as an eco-tourism centre due to the many hill tribe villages, river communities and unspoilt national parks. These settings all lend themselves to outdoor activities such as trekking, kayaking and caving.

The capital, Vientiane, and the other major towns have been spared major modern developments with traditional and colonial architecture still dominant.The laidback feel of Laos and the relative lack of westernised development makes it an attractive option for many visitors – other than Myanmar, it is probably the most ‘authentic’ of the Indochinese nations. Laos is also one of the few Communist countries left in the world. Until 1988, tourists were not allowed entry to Laos, but now it is possible to travel all over the country, either independently or in a group. For now, Laos remains relatively isolated and undeveloped.
