Laos is poetically known as 'the land of a million elephants' and one of south-east Asia's most enchanting countries; eye-wateringly beautiful and boasts a rich embroidery of traditional culture and wondrous scenery. If you want to tread a path less travelled, this charming country is the perfect destination. Meet warm, friendly people, see fabulous sights and taste mouth-watering local cuisine. Laidback Laos is easy to explore but difficult to leave.
