Asia’s undiscovered gem

Laos

Asia’s undiscovered gem

The Lao People’s Democratic Republic, or Lao PDR, is a country that moves to its own measure of time. Life flows along at a languid pace which mirrors the waters of the Mekong River that flows through the country. Towns are less hectic than elsewhere in Asia and the countryside is a rare combination of beauty and tranquillity.

Compared to the rest of Indochina, Laos remained largely hidden to the rest of the world for much for the 20th Century. Visitors today encounter an unfussed society with a strong spiritual tradition where the cacophonies of the modern world seem irrelevant. Despite increased international interest, Laos remains the undiscovered gem of Asia. This landlocked nation of six million people exudes a delightful, almost other-worldly, charm and reminds visitors of a simpler, less harried past. Sleepy Vientiane and especially Luang Prabang exude charm – here saffron clad monks can be seen collecting alms first thing in the morning before proceeding to the many gilded temples and stupas.

Epic Laos

This small landlocked and laid back nation is surely the most beguiling in all of Asia. Laos exudes calm and charm and this is reflected in its ornate temples, most notably at Luang Prabang, and the Mekong River which snakes its way through the length of the country.

Aidan Reynolds, our Managing Director has visited this delightful destination on many occasions and, as many before him, has succumbed to its timeless beauty. Let us take you on a journey to the very soul of Asia.
