Laos Sports & Adventure

Land locked and forgotten by the world, Laos is a treasure trove of unexpected discoveries.

One of the least developed countries on earth, Laos is mountainous and covered in rainforest and its low population of under 5m supports a dazzling array of ethnic minority groups that still live and dress as they always have.

A visit to Laos should include a trek to visit the Hmong or Iko tribes, an elephant safari, a river journey and a bike ride.

Thanks to heavy spending by the World and Asian Development Banks in recent years, the major roads are surprisingly, good though little used, so cycle touring (for those who don't mind the odd up hill pedal) is a fine way to explore and breathe the mountain air.

Laos people are gentle and friendly so encounters en route are a highlight.

For people in search of an action packed experience, Vang Vieng is a backpacker honeypot where rock climbing, trekking, rafting, kayaking, caving, biking and all kinds of activities are on offer... together with the attendant night time hangouts (that close at 11pm).
