Laos Flag

Laos , officially the Lao People's Democratic Republic, is a landlocked country in Southeast Asia, bordered by Burma and China to the northwest, Vietnam to the east, Cambodia to the south and Thailand to the west. Laos traces its history to the Kingdom of Lan Xang or Land of a Million Elephants, which existed from the 14th to the 18th century. After a period as a French protectorate, it gained independence in 1949. A long civil war ended officially when the Stalinist Pathet Lao movement came to power in 1975, but the protesting between factions continued for several years. 10.6% of the population live below the international poverty line of US$1.25 a day.

Vientiane - City of Sandalwood - Vientiane
Vientiane - City of Sandalwood During my trip to Laos, this was our last station to spend one night. This is the capital of Laos. Vientiane literally “City of Sandalwood” is the capital city of Laos, situated in the Mekong Valley. It is also Laos’s largest city. Sri Sattanak, or Sisattanak is a former name of Vientiane. It is often confused with Sri Sattanakanahut, the Pali name of Lan Xang, the Kingdom of the Million Elephants. Sisattanak now is the name of one of the five districts of the city Vientiane.

Vang Vieng - Beautiful Tourist Spot - Vientiane
Vang Vieng - Beautiful Tourist Spot Vang Vieng is a very small village in Laos. But you will see the nature here. There is a dusty road near to my guest house I lived. I spent one night during my trip to Laos. The market is located five kilometres north of the town selling Lao textiles, household items and several stalls selling dubious foodstuffs. In the town there is a wat that is notable in looking rundown and keeping its valuables chained behind a door. The town is situated on the main north-south highway, Route 13 from Luang Prabang to the capital, Vientiane. But the real attractions of the area are the scenery, the limestone hills and the numerous caves and caverns. Perhaps the most interesting is the Tham Phu Kham cave, half an hour from Va...
