Luxury Laos Tours – Lndlocked between Thailand, Myanmar, Vietnam, China and Cambodia, Laos is a sleepy Buddhist backwater whose friendly inhabitants and laid-back way of life are its biggest tourist attractions. Here, the currents of Asia swirl like the murky waters of the Mekong River – markets are piled high with durians, statues of Buddha look out over the paddy fields, and monks in saffron robes carry umbrellas to drive back the tropical sun and monsoon rain. Outside of the pocket-sized capital, Vientiane, travellers trek to tribal villages and drift along rivers in rubber rings, or spend lazy days sipping Beer Lao in the sleepy colonial city of Luang Prabang.
