LAOS | Tue, 23 Feb 2016 | By finally | Photo Gallery

LUANG PRABANG Luang Prabang, la capitale "culturelle" du Laos et également ancienne capitale qui abrita le grand (luang) Bouddha d’Or (prabang, statue d’or sacrée). La vieille ville de Luang Prabang baignée par les fleuves Nam Kane et Mékong, a été classée ... Read more >

Hammocks on the Mekong, night busses, and COPE in the capital

LAOS | Mon, 11 Nov 2013 | By rutha90 | Views [2240]

From the border of Laos I travelled by minivan to a small riverside village on the Mekong River called Ban Makasang, which is the port to Si Phan Don, or 4000 islands. I took a small boat out to the nearest island, Don Det. I stayed in a bungalow on ... Read more >

Back in Laos Again

LAOS | Tue, 21 May 2013 | By gsewake | Views [513]

When we were planning this trip we had a sneaking suspicion that Laos would be our favorite country, and boy were we right. So far we have spent a total of six weeks here and have explored from the north to the south and a few places in between. We love ... Read more >

Vang Vieng and Vientiane, Laos

LAOS | Sat, 1 Dec 2012 | By sglass | Views [1113]

After such a wonderful time in Luang Prabang, we were excited to explore some other cities in Laos. Namely, Vang Vieng and the capital, Vientiane. Turns out Laos is a bit of a mixed bag. In contrast to picture-perfect Luang Prabang (LP), which feels ... Read more >

A week in Vientiane

LAOS | Fri, 19 Oct 2012 | By lani | Views [1008] | Comments [1]

Laos started out as a convenient side trip idea which allowed us to leave Thailand and re-enter to renew our tourist visas for another month but ended up being a true highlight of the trip!    We flew to Vientiane in the morning and after ... Read more >

5 Things I Wish I Knew Before Going to Laos

LAOS | Wed, 25 Aug 2010 | By safetyhub | Views [3438]

Laos has never enjoyed the same distinction as a travel destination as some of its more frequented Southeast Asia neighbors like Thailand and Vietnam. Still, the nation offers many treasures for the traveler seeking to get away from the bustle found ... Read more >

Loving (and Leaving) Laos... OR Tuk-Tuks, Tubing and Thai Visas

LAOS | Tue, 20 Oct 2009 | By hannahandemma | Views [811] | Comments [4]

Laos is the most chilled out, laid-back, relaxed place I have ever been. Seriously. It's like the Jamaica of the East (or so I assume, never having been to Jamaica). While it's taken Hannah a little while to get used to living on "Laos time"... Read more >

LAOS | Fri, 17 Jul 2009 | By ryanandjo | Views [2835] | Comments [1]

We arrived in the capital, Vientiane, and started to wonder if we were still in Laos or if we’d been transported to France. The streets were lined with biblioteque, boulangeries, patisseries etc, There was even an Arc ... Read more >

All the good things of France, without (as many) French!

LAOS | Wed, 27 May 2009 | By caitmcl | Views [1424] | Comments [2]

Ou est la biblioteque?  Croque monsieur!  These are a few of the many French turns of phrase I have picked up here in Laos's capital, Vientiane.  The French influence is apparent in the wide, tree-lined streets and abundant fragrant bakeries.  It is ... Read more >

Vientiane - Big City Livin'

LAOS | Mon, 2 Feb 2009 | By jciecko | Views [1481]

Vientiane is my favorite SE Asia city to date. The traffic is bearable, the streets are clean, and the people are incredibly friendly. The city’s French influence is unmistakable – wide boulevards with roundabouts, numerous street-side cafes, and colonial ... Read more >

From Vientiane to Vietnam

LAOS | Fri, 18 Jan 2008 | By justine | Views [3014]

I arrived in Vientiane, the capital of Laos on Monday afternoon and saw my first traffic light since arriving in Laos. It’s a shock to see so many cars after being in motorbike territory for so long. Vientiane is pretty sleepy as far as national ... Read more >
