What to seeNo trip to Laos would be complete without a stay in the peaceful town of Luang Prabang. Best known for its high concentration of Buddhist temples and serene location on the banks of Mekong, Luang Prabang was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1995. Of Laos’ many rivers, certainly the most notable is the Mekong. It runs from the north-west to the most southern tip of Laos, forming a natural border with Thailand. You could spend several days cruising the river, providing a great opportunity to see some of the more remote areas of the country, which are often inaccessible by road. The Plain of Jars in the north is also an interesting sight, the landscape being dotted with hundreds of mysterious and centuries-old stone jars.
