Although Laos is often overshadowed by its neighbouring countries, this country is actually full of untouched sceneries, waiting to be explored. Between its jagged limestone cliffs, brooding jungle and the snaking Mekong River, Laos is an adventure playground all in one bite-sized destination. You could cruise, cycle or walk around the picturesque 4,000 Islands region or take the Nam Nern Night Safari to spot some of Laos’ rare wildlife such as slow loris and wild dogs. One of the top things to do, however, is a visit to the UNESCO site of Wat Phou where ancient temple ruins lie among tropical foliage. A journey along the Nam Ou River lets you explore limestone cliffs and caves as well as meet local hill tribes, while witnessing the daily alms-giving in Luang Prabang offers an insight into sacred traditions.
