Laos holidays by Cox & King

Land-locked by Cambodia, China, Burma, Thailand and Vietnam, Laos covers an area roughly the size of Great Britain, much of which is dominated by mountains and rivers. For many years this charming destination remained untouched, isolated and over-shadowed by its neighbours – leaving Laos to its own devices.

Visit and you are transported back to the past to find a peaceful, laidback country, and a culture which, based on Buddhism, lends its people a delightful charm and friendliness. Highlights include romantic Luang Prabang, the riverside capital Vientiane, and the natural scenes of the south.
