• Laos is a highly multilingual country with the inhabitants speaking 86 different languages. The language Lao is the official language and is spoken by slightly more than half of the population.
  • The tourism sector has more than doubled from tourists visiting Laos in 1990. The cities of Luang Prabang and Vet Phou are both UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
  • Laos is the least developed country in the South Eastern Asian region. Often it is referred to as ‘The Land of a Million Elephants’ and offers an untouched and unspoiled glimpse into the olden day life in those regions. Laos offers various landscapes, from thick jungle and lush floodplains through to dramatically rugged mountains and cave networks.
  • Laos’s serene blend of forested mountains, limestone karsts and riverfront towns, keeps nature lovers returning back again more and more. Laos has stylish, elegant cities such as Vientiane and Luang Prabang, which combine French colonial architecture, stunning Buddhist temples and alaid back atmosphere far removed from other Asian cities.
