The Jewel of Southeast Asia
Laos – known as the jewel of Southeast Asia, has remained relatively untouched from modern globalization, making it an intriguing natural destination to visit. The true beauty of Laos lies in its people, the centuries-old traditions, and its lush and pristine landscapes.
The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Luang Prabang has been ranked as one of the most desirable travel destinations. This tranquil town along the Mekong River is dotted with glittering temples and traditional residences that are infused with French colonial architecture. Each morning at sunrise, magical Luang Prabang bears witness to hundreds of saffron-robed monks gliding through the streets, participating in the almsgiving ceremony, an old Buddhist ritual steeped in tradition and one of the region’s most iconic images. For many visitors Luang Prabang in Laos, but more intrepid travellers will discover more of the country, untainted by mass tourism.
