Laos overview

Laos Guide
Laos is a country that is often overlooked by those travelling in Asia, largely because it does not have any famous beaches or songs written about it. Because of this, Laos still remains a bit of a hidden gem in the region, as most of the tourism finds its way to Thailand, Vietnam, and Cambodia. While Laos is rich in culture and history, it is poor in just about every other way, as most of the population lives well below the poverty line. Most tourists stick around the capital of Vientiane, which is chock full of beautiful and unique temples, including Wat Sok Pa Luang and Wat Si Muang. Vientiane is also home to many famous Buddhists stupas and is home to Buddha Park. Although many people overlook Laos as a travel destination, those who find their way to this unique country never forget it.
