Experience the traditional way of life that moves along at an unhurried pace, along with the warmth, kindness and amiably vague timekeeping of the Lao people. Hike through virgin forested mountains and pristine river valleys in this country known for its robust ecotourism initiatives. Situated in a scenic valley at the confluence of the Mekong and Nam Khan rivers, the ancient capital of Luang Prabang offers a beautiful medley of rich cultural history and outdoor adventure with its nearby waterfalls and mountains. The tranquil capital city of Vientiane maintains a vintage charm with its faded French colonial architecture juxtaposed with ornate, gilded temples. The Lao countryside is just as intriguing, highlighted by the mysterious Plain of Jars and Champassak Province, home to ancient temples, coffee plantations and unspoilt natural landscapes. There are two international airports in Laos, Luang Prabang International Airport and Wattay International Airport in Vientiane.
