Laos is a landlocked country steeped in nature, food, history, and Buddhism.
Laos is wrapped in a mountainous landscape, making it one of the most beautiful countries in Southeast Asia, even if it lacks the beaches of other countries. Adventure travel is big here. You can go zip-lining, kayaking, hiking, and cave tubing all in one day.
It used to be a popular destination for partying but, since the wild tubing days have been curtailed, it’s turned into a more relaxed, outdoor-oriented country.
Backpacking Laos is something you have to do, especially if you’re exploring Southeast Asia. I loved the country a lot more than I thought I would!
