UPPER MEKONG & LAOS
With a rich history stretching back over thousands of years, the landlocked (former) kingdom of Laos is unique amongst the tigers and dragons of Asia. Here you will find a society which is not devoted to material pleasures; and where Buddhism permeates every fabric of life. A land of mountains, mists and untamed beauty, where people go about their daily activities as their ancestors have through the centuries. For real travellers, Laos is an unrivalled experience, one which will leave you calmer and with an enrichment of soul. It’s a shopper’s “paradise” and Leith Malcolm knows all the best places – firstname.lastname@example.org.
