Laos is a beautiful mountainous country. Once known as the Land of Million Elephants, Laos boasts a myriad of distinct flora and fauna, unspoilt greenery, fascinating cultures and rich history. Whether you choose to visit the cultural highlights in Vientiane, hunt for great bargains while wandering in the streets of Luang Prabang or discover the roads less travelled in other parts of Laos - your journey to Laos will truly be a blast from the past.

Vientiane, the capital is located on a curve of the Mekong River, bordering Thailand. With tree-lined boulevards, temples and some examples of old colonial architecture, it still possesses a relaxed, timeless atmosphere. The places not to be missed in Vientiane are That Luang Stupa which is the most important monument of Laos, Patuxai or Vertical Runway, the arch structure that contains bitter history of the wartimes in Laos and Buddha Park, located 25 km away from the center.
