Compact, Beautiful and easy to Explore

Westerners are now flocking to the Orient in huge numbers, but relatively few of them visited this enchanting country. Thailand remains a huge draw because of its endless beaches, Cambodia has Angkor Wat, and even Viet Nam has thrown open its gates recently, but in the middle of it all sits Laos, a peaceful, hauntingly beautiful country. Unless you’ve been in the area for a while, Vientiane will probably be your first stop. Travelers of all interests can arrange excursions from here, or they can set off on their own, using Laos’s surprisingly efficient bus service. While in the capital, take an evening walk through town and have dinner at one of the riverside restaurants. There you can dine on freshly caught prawns or just sip on a delicious Beerlao from the local brewery as the sun sets over the Mekong. If you’re coming from northern Thailand, take a two-day slow boat to the river city of Luang Prabang, where you’ll enjoy idyllic scenery, delicious food and warm hospitality.
