Laos is Southeast Asia's best-kept secret. What this landlocked nation lacks in beaches it more than makes up for in timeless charm. Its soft-spoken people, colourful hilltribe communities and vast stretches of waterfall-filled wilderness contribute to an 'undiscovered' quality few destinations can match. Laos is tranquility incarnate, and the perfect place to visit for a transformative getaway.
As a landlocked nation, life in Laos is governed by the ebb and flow of the Mekong River which runs through its heart. Its mostly mountainous terrain is punctuated by charming villages and colourful hilltribes who, despite neighboring five other countries, retain a distinct culture and way of life found nowhere else in the region.
Discover the treasure trove of natural and cultural offerings in Laos with intimate hill tribe encounters, transformative hiking adventures and everything in between with EXO.
