Laos is the wonderfully laid back member of South-east Asia. It is a country in which you travel, not necessarily to visit major tourist attractions, but to understand the culture and feel the wonderful warmth of the people. That being said, Laos is home to some of South-east Asia's most stunning limestone peaks and the romantic, Gallic-influenced, UNESCO protected city of Luang Prabang has been wonderfully restored.
