Learn More About Laos

Laos is traversed by the Meekong River that winds its way through mountains and hilltribe villages. River Cruises on the Meekong have become hugely popular over the last decade. 

Located in a Tropical Climate Region, the best months to visit Laos are October through April.  This will ensure the lowest rainfall. 

Lao is the official language, however, only half the country speak Lao. The rest of the country speaks regional ethnic dialects.  French is taught in schools and still very broadly spoken. Road signs throughout the country are in Lao & French. English is becoming more acceptable and spoken in recent years.  Perhaps a result of the massive tourism influx over the last 25 years.

Information and Facts

Laos is a place of awe with its mountainous terrain, natural beauty, French colonial architecture, Buddhist temples and rich history dating back to over 10,000 years.  The capital, Vientiane, is famous for the “Pha That Luang," a 16th century, gold-covered Buddhist temple and a must-see for its many references to the country’s culture and ancient roots (it has become a national symbol for Laos).
