Laos, the ‘Land of a Million Elephants’ is like a children’s fairytale set in a far-away jungle, where flashes of exotic wildlife filter through the misty greenery and jagged limestone karsts. Journey to this quiet, serene country and travel back in time, for modern life seems to have forgotten this landlocked wonder. From the North’s mountainous terrain and indigenous hill tribes, to the South’s sparkling paddy fields and traditional markets, Laos is sure to spark your imagination as one of Asia’s last untouched destinations.

Dominated by the vast expanse of the Mekong River the temple ruins of Wat Phou, estimated to date back as far as the pre-Angkorian Chenla kingdom which ruled the area in the 6th to 8th centuries, was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001.

The Plain of Jars is one of Southeast Asia`s most misunderstood prehistoric landscapes. Across the fields of Phonsavan, peculiar monuments, believed to be a part of an ancient society`s burial rituals, dot the landscape. Some of these jars are decorated with carved images of monkeys, tigers and frogs, related to ancient animistic beliefs. The area is also the most heavily bombard in the World after intense and lengthy carpet bombing during the Vietnam War and local architecture betrays traces of this in its choice of materials.
