21 Photos to Inspire you to Travel Laos

Laos is a gorgeous country and one quickly rising in popularity on the Southeast Asian backpacking trail. It is easy to see why, as there is no shortage of simply stunning scenery and nature, as well as being vibrantly rich in culture and history.

Did you know Laos is the most bombed country in the world? Quite an interesting fact I thought. On a more positive note, they are also well-known for their adventurous outdoor activities, French colonial architecture, mountainous terrain, hill tribe settlements, Buddhist monasteries, being the highest consumers of sticky rice in the world and having a nation-wide midnight curfew.

Visiting Laos for the first time recently was during my fifth trip to Southeast Asia and I’m so glad I finally went. I only got to spend 10 nights there and I know I’ll be back (but preferably not during the rainy season again!).

Below is a collection of 21 of my favourite photos and highlights from Laos, from Vientiane, Vang Vieng and Luang Prabang. Hopefully, if you haven’t been before they can inspire you to visit Laos on your next Southeast Asian trip.
