LAO People's Democratic Republic
Land of a Million Elephants

Laos is truly a Mekong country, the river runs its full length. It is a quiet, unexplored jewel of Southeast Asia with only 4.1 million people. Landlocked between China, Cambodia, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam, Laos has long remained isolated. Despite the fact that it was heavily bombed in the '60s and early '70, its culture and scenery remain intact, from the lush green mountains of its North to the ancient archeaological treasures of its South. You will not find large numbers of tourists as its leaders are wary of the difficulties mass tourism can cause. It is said that in Laos, you can lie back and listen to the rice grow.
