Laos? Yes it's on the map now. Grey hairs with suitcases are joining backpackers in visiting this mellow if little known country. After meeting a steady stream of travellers with glowing reports we thought we'd give it a visit. Laos is landlocked country in south-east Asia. It's east of Thailand, west of Vietnam, north of Cambodia, south of China. The population is a small fraction of it's neighbours at six million in a land area of that of Britain. Mountainous, rural with a unhurried laid-back vibe. It wasn't always this tranquil though. During the Vietnamese-American war it was a crossroads for Vietcong supply routes to the south which attracted millions of tonnes of bomb from the US Airforce. The general instability of the wars lead to the overthrow of the six century old monarchy based in Luang Prabang and a communist takeover. I hope you enjoy this glimpse of it's people and culture.
