Laos is one of the most beautiful, relaxed and unique countries we visited. We quickly fell in love with the landscape, the people and the laid-back vibe. In Laos life revolves around the rivers.The mighty Mekong flows slowly and the pace of life seems to match.
We found Laos to be remarkably laid-back, friendly and easy to travel around. Everywhere we went it seemed that people were relaxing: on a bed inside their shop/restaurant, in a hammock strung up in the back of a tuk tuk or just sitting outside their house, chatting to neighbors.
Disclaimer: all above pictures were taken during a bus ride between Luang Prabang and Vang Vieng – the most nauseating, but also one of the most scenic bus trips we ever have taken.
