Laos is by far the most beautiful country that I’ve visited, the landscape is so dramatic and stunning. Every single drive from one town to the next is an adventure as you gaze out onto the scenery, and as Laos is much less trodden than the other countries in the region, you can feel as if you’re discovering places that have never been visited! If you have time, Phonsavan’s jars really capture your imagination, but you’re sure not to leave out an atmospheric boat cruise in Luang Prabang.

Beautiful green laidback Laos. Coming from the bustling City of Bangkok into the quiet French colonial streets of Luang Prabang greeted me like a breath of fresh Air. Untainted by mass tourism I loved the French influence – bakeries to die for, the architecture, the art and craft markets and the surrounding lush green countryside. I kayaked down the mighty Mekong with an ice cold Beerlao in hand travelled to Vang Vieng and then jumped on a bus to the languid riverfront capital of Vientiane.
