09-days Laos Travel. Glimpses of Laos

Laos is considered as Southeast Asia’s pristine environment with intact cultures and quite possibly the most chilled-out people on the earth. It is located on the axis of the Lower Mekong River and shares borders with Vietnam to the east, Cambodia to the south, Thailand to the west, and Myanmar and China to the north. Most of the country is covered by mountains and rivers, giving its stunning natural landscapes.

With the population of just over six million, Laos is one of the least populated countries in the region. Tourists to Laos today will experience the richness of the Theravada Buddhist culture, the long history of the country, the lifestyle of different interesting ethnic minorities, beautiful nature and especially the absence of 21st century prosperity.

Stretched out on the north-eastern bank of a bend in the Mekong River, Vientiane is the capital as well as the largest city of Laos. Compared to the hectic, bustling capitals in other Southeast Asian countries, Vientiane’s relaxing atmosphere makes it feel like a small town. Vientiane is also home to many temples and Buddhist monuments of Laos. The most must-see site here is the golden Pha That Luang, which was built in the third century A.D. Pha That Luang preserves the relic of the Buddha and is considered as the most sacred Buddhist monument of the country.

Coming to Champassak, tourists can contemplate the ancient beauty of a temple built in Khmer Architecture – Wat Phu. Wat Phu is believed to be at least four centuries older than the Angkor Wat of Cambodia. Other wats worth seeing are Wat Luang and Wat Tham Fai. You also should not miss to visit Si Phan Don (the Four Thousand Islands), Li Phi Waterfalls (one of the most beautiful in Asia), Khong Island where the rare fresh water dolphins can be seen, and the Phabeng waterfall which is probably the wildest waterfalls in the world. In addition, Pakse is becoming an increasingly popular starting point in Laos because there is an excellent road link, via Chong Mek, to Ubon Ratchathani - a lovely city, easy to reach from Bangkok, and well worth a couple of days of anyone's time.
