Wherever you’ve come from, set your watch to “Laos time.
Laos long ago watched as the rest of Asia raced ahead. It boasts misty mountains, beautiful French colonial towns, monks wandering the streets and golden Buddhist statues.
No meal in Laos is complete without sticky rice and spicy papaya salad. Chow down on grilled Mekong River fish while the sun sets over the water in Luang Prabang.
Quite simply, Laos is the most peaceful and serene country in Asia.
