Landlocked Laos remains one of Southeast Asia’s most beguiling destinations, this country retains a slow, rather old-fashioned charm, and its people – incredibly laidback and friendly. Laos alone rewards exploration, it’s a place where few Westerners venture occupies. Stretching from the forest-clad mountains of the north to the islands of the far south, there’s enough here to keep you occupied for weeks, and still feel as though you’d barely scratched the surface. Colourfully dressed hill tribes populate the higher elevations, while in the lowland river valleys, coconut palms sway over the Buddhist monasteries of the ethnic Lao. The country also retains some of the French influence it absorbed during colonial days: the familiar smell of freshly baked bread and coffee mingles with exotic local aromas in morning markets, and many French restaurants.
