Southeast Asia on a Shoestring - Laos (Chapter)
This is the Laos chapter from Lonely Planet’s Southeast Asia guidebook.
Laos oozes magic from the moment you trek through a glimmering rice paddy or hear the sonorous call of one of the country’s endangered gibbons. It’s also a place to luxuriate, whether by pampering yourself in a spa or chilling in a delicious Gallic restaurant.
- experience Luang Prabang, the ancient city of temples which has it all: royal history, Indochinese chic, colourful monks, waterfalls, elephant rides, stunning river views and world-class French cuisine
- take a boat ride through exhilarting yet spooky Tham Kong Lo, a 7.5km cave that’s home to fist-sized spiders and stalactite woods
- trek and zip across the forest by day at the Gibbon Experience, guided by ex-poachers turned forest rangers, who lead you to your bed for the night in cosy treehouses
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Vientiane, Northern Laos, Central & Southern Laos, Understand Laos, Survival Guide.
