Laos is a wonderful, peaceful country in South-East Asia. I enjoyed my time here immensely. There is great beauty in the land, and as a backpacker it's a very interested if laid-back place to venture. I loved my time in Luang Prabang, in the north of the country, where I took a boat on the Mekong River, visited a bear sanctuary and swam beneath a waterfall with shades of paradise. The atmosphere of the town was great, and there were some good places to eat as well. Join me as I travel further south and east to the Plain of Jars at Phonsovan, and the eye-opening Vang Vieng, finishing in the peaceful capital, Vientiane. This book is full of stories, tips and photos from one of South-East Asia's true gems - the brilliant Laos!
