Though being a small country with a population of less than 7 millions people, Laos offers diverse scenery and rich culture with many activities awaiting you to experience. While taking part in the daily morning alms-giving in Luang Prabang is a great step into Laos’ sacred traditions, a journey along the famous Nam Ou River will give you opportunities to meet local hill tribes and explore limestone cliffs. Of cause, you can’t miss the UNESCO site of Wat Phou, cruise or cycle around the picturesque 4,000 islands region in the southern Laos.
