Visit sayaboury

Sayaboury is situated in the northwest of Laos, sharing borders with Vientiane and Luang Prabang in the east; Thailand and the Nam Phui National Protected Area in the west. This mountainous province has several peaks with altitudes of more than 1,000 meters. Travelling to this rugged landscape will reveal many beautiful mountains and flower gardens. The local people earn their living via agricultural products such as growing rice, cucumbers, cotton, cabbage, sesame, maize, oranges, beans and sugarcane. Teak forests cover large parts of the province.

The Malabri, one of the last remaining hunter-gatherer groups in Southeast Asia inhabit the forests in the province’s western region. Other ethnic groups located in the province include the Khmu, Tai Dam, Tai Lue, Htin, Phai, Kri, and Akha. In Muang Ngeun District are ethnic Tai Lue villages, which still build traditional houses constructed with characteristic high-sloping roofs.
