Southeast Asia - Laos (Chapter)
Laos This is the Laos chapter from Lonely Planet’s Southeast Asia on a Shoestring guidebook.
Laos is a country oozing authenticity, a destination that makes you feel you’ve really escaped; glimmering rice paddies, towering karsts, apricot-robed monks, Indochinese villas and a richly ethnic population…pure magic. For the rugged traveller wanting shoestring digs and adventure, Laos delivers.
- wander through Luang Prabang, an ancient city of temples with royal history, Indochinese chic, colourful monks, river views and world-class French cuisine.
- trek Nam Ha National Protected Area to some of the wildest, densest jungle in the country, home to tigers and a rich variety of ethnic tribes.
- zip across the forest on the Gibbon Experience, an adrenaline rush with an eco-conscience, and spend the night in a cosy tree house.
- restaurants & accommodation
