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).
