Culture of Laos

Private Laos tours take you deep inside one of Southeast Asia’s hidden gems, into a peaceful, landlocked nation. The stunning natural beauty of forested mountains and valleys teeming with wildlife combined with a fascinating Buddhist culture make Laos perfect for those seeking an adventurous and authentic cultural experience.

Laos is bordered by five countries – China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Myanmar. The Mekong River, which forms a large part of the border with Thailand, has always been at the heart of Laos civilization and culture. Most of Laos today remains relatively isolated and undeveloped. Its capital, Vientiane, is more like a big village than a crowded Asian hub, and life throughout the country is slow-paced.

The UNESCO World Heritage town of Luang Prabang is a leading attraction for our Laos tours. Luang Prabang is popular because of the glittering ancient temples, saffron-robed monks, authentic textile villages and sleepy riverside atmosphere of the region.

The official language here is ‘Lao’ or ‘Laotian’, but several tribal languages are spoken, as is French, Vietnamese and some English. Thai is also well understood in Laos.

Top Laos Travel Tips – Culture

One thing you won’t have to worry about during one of our Laos tours is being swindled. Thanks to Buddhist influence on Lao society and culture, the people here are known as some of the most honest in the world!

WHAT OUR GUESTs SAY

One of the very best travel experiences I have ever had. We even got updates once at 3 am! He also made one change in one day’s itinerary to accommodate our wishes which was very wonderful. For business, I have traveled to Europe, Russia, all over Asia and South Africa but was blown away by all the beautiful sites in Argentina and Chile.
