LaosLaos is a hugely popular destination, most of the attraction being to Luang Prabang, as well as those wishing to relax on the impressive Mekong River boats. The few inhabitants have learnt to live with the landscape around them, using the dry season to temporarily plant crops in the lowered banks of the river. The fertile lowlands of the Mekong River valley and its rugged Annamite highlands offer visitors a real experience of traditional Southeast Asian life. Scott Dunn’s highlights for Laos: Witness the fascinating culture in Laos as people go about their everyday life on the Mekong River. Cruise from Luang Prabang, and take in the fishermen, villages and Buddhist temples as you journey to some of the most beautiful and remote places in Laos.
