Laos can be bewildering to the first time visitor. Foreign influences (and encounters) have been shaping Laos for thousands of years, and the rituals and behaviours you'll encounter are usually a result of many millennia worth of cultural evolution.

Buddhism thrives in Laos. Golden stupas, towering pagodas, smiling images of the Buddha, ancient temple cities, and more await your exploration.

Laos is a land of tradition. French colonization did little to the change the centuries old practices of Laos’s heavily Buddhist culture. Our guests have marvellous opportunities to experience ancient rituals and rites in some of Laos’s most sacred places.

Discover Laos history and beauty. UNESCO heritage sights, medieval temples, and colonial towns near pristine beaches are waiting to be explored.

Revel in unspoiled natural beauty. Laos is a pristine piece of Southeast Asia packed with deep forests teeming with diverse wildlife.
